My favorite part may be when one of them literally says, "That makes this what? Tournament of Champions?" I would have stood up and cheered in a theater.
I'm all for this dumb/fun series being the new Final Destination. Give me one every year.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
(Spoilerish I guess although the influence is apparent early.)
Some of it is incompetent but I think that’s intentional? And respect to Wan for getting a major studio to release something this cuckoo bananas.
Best appreciated as a big-budget homage to low-budget insanity like Basket Case. An edible helps too.
It’s almost impressive to make a three-hour end of an era movie that still feels like it has no real stakes.
