it's flawed, and ending right where the story should be ramping up to a conclusion is... frustrating

but it has a lot of heart and the cast are great

(especially christolph waltz, who delivers an actual genuinely touching performance instead of falling back on the tics he's been relying on since inglourious basterds and also he has a rocket-propelled hammer ffs)

agreed wholeheartedly re: waltz

i'd have to rewatch SpyKids and the first two Mariachi movies, which iirc do have the advantage of being a little more focused than this one.

I maintain that this movie’s wandering episodic focus is a strength not a weakness and makes the whole project feel More Anime

i remember absolutely dying at the misbehavers in theaters but i haven't seen it since then and i'm unlikely to hunt it down

eleven months pass...

I groaned thinking that the villain was played by Cameron himself under dodgy makeup but then groaned again when it turned out not to be Cameron.

I lol’d, both times.
