User reviews10ReviewTOP REVIEW7/10Very good but not greatThis movie starts amazing but begins to fall apart in the 3rd act. Acting is amazing, the talents are perfect for the roles, but what really drags the movie down is 2 things, Political correctness and the storyline.
The storyline is very busy, many things are happening at once, viewers are bombarded with revelation after revelation, storylines that are all over the place in the 3rd act, you will need to pay close attention and remember the original movie for things to make sense for anyone.
Personally when it comes to entertainment I prefer to leave political opinions and current news out of it, this movie at some point rely heavily on race to deliver ideas and storylines, which I understand is part of the original movie but here it is taken quite to a new level.
In general very good movie to watch in theatres and I highly recommend it.helpful•89
