Fans of film noir will want to see what Reminiscence has to offer, but its allure is surface level. The aesthetic and world-building, as compelling as they are, do not make up for unmemorable plot, characters and dialogue.
I come to you with the rarest of findings: a three-hour movie that knows what to do with its time.
A rich and nuanced study of familial duty, class and disability, with coming-of-age tropes to spare.
This final movie, as messy as it is, provides something Evangelion has never had: a definite conclusion.
The central plot of this movie did nothing for me, but I was engrossed in the lives of the four lead characters all the same.
OSS 117, the character as well as the franchise, has not been able to adapt to the times.
It is easy to imagine a good movie being made with the concept at the heart of The Woman Who Ran; I certainly had ample opportunity to, because its brief 77-minute runtime nevertheless felt like an excruciating slog.
A fun action thriller that makes the most of Kate Beckinsale’s badassery and comedic timing.
Definitely an improvement over the first instalment -it could hardly be worse- but not nearly as funny nor as subversive as it thinks itself to be.
