Matt Damon gives a great performance and Tom McCarthy proves The Cobbler was a temporary misfire and brings the same distinct sensibilities to this film as he brought to Spotlight, Timmy Failure and The Visitor (still need to see his other films)
P. S. Mychael Danna's score seems mismatched at times and didn't reflect the accurate tone of the film.
As everyone has stated genius episode. You think it's' a traditional flashback episode that might not further the plot, but nope it's a 2 in 1 traditional flashback episode AND it furthers the plot. Also, I love the acting from everyone, but especially Tyler and Bitsie; they are currently the definitive Superman and Lois!
Jerry trainor is as funny as before, Miranda cosgrove and Nathan kress return to their roles with ease. The new additions to the cast will take some time to resonate but so far they seem to fit right in with the rest of the cast. Some jokes land, but some don't, the laugh track is definetely more annoying than the previous iteration.

Good action can't compensate for mediocre camerawork,an unnecessary prolonged runtime and wooden acting minus Dave Bautista and the very underrated Hiroyuki Sanada.
Although there's an intriguing universe that is explored in this movie and will be explored in further installments mainly prequels; This franchise is unfortunately dead to me as soon as the credits rolled.
P. S. The Tig Notoro "CGI" did blow me away besides 1 or 2 expository shots it's amazingly seamless overall.
Exactly what you expect in a coming of age film but with the style and substance of asian culture and director Eddie Huang's perspective. Good performances as well from the entire cast. Only issue I had was the ending felt anticlimactic and a very "Hollywood" ending
When I first saw the Lucas Brothers in 22 Jump Street I told myself these guys would be perfect for a Fred Hampton biopic.
Jokes aside this movie is fantastic. The performances are amazing especially from Daniel Kaluuya, Lakeith Stanfield, and the rest of the cast. Shaka King's direction also showcases himself as a formidable force.
The only nitpick I have is the film doesn't take a firm stance whether it's mainly about Fred Hampton or Bill O' Neal. Obviously, the film discusses both of them in depth, but it's hard to decide who is the main protagonist.
Regardless, the combination of eclectic performances and captivating direction delivers one of the best films in the last few years.
