“Ding Dong Broken!”
A heart warming and humbling story. Made me think of how hard it must’ve been for my grandparents or any immigrants from another country to start a new life in America. Definitely wish more filmmakers told stories in which the characters spoke in their native language like this one. Acting in this film was great all around. Main message I got out of it was that family is everything, even when shit hits the fan. Shoutout to A24 for exposing more audiences to smaller indie films with underrepresented characters. Deserves to rack up those nominations!
The fighting could’ve been more gruesome... From a filmmaking standpoint, the editing of the fight scenes harmed the film in my opinion. Even when my expectations were low I found myself disappointed with things. Overall though I did enjoy seeing some of my favorite video game characters on screen. Hopefully they refine things in the next go around if a sequel is made
