If you come to this for the much advertised fight choreography or exciting chase scenes, you will be disappointed. We’ve seen more exciting of each many times. There’s no new ground here, no stunts in the Tom Cruise sense to speak of. No risks at all.
Fightwise the only novelty we have that is now already a brand is our character’s damage that somehow transcends the challenges. So don’t come for the action. Come for the world-building.
It is astonishingly compelling, extended from the ‘Godfather’ tradition of ‘rules and consequences’. It is comically extreme but consistent and logical. I can recommend this because of the thought that went into the creation of the world and the elaborate setup for the next film. That setup is tantalising.
The idea that what keeps him going, pushes him through is personally attractive. He wants to live to remember his wife.
