DR MUSTACHE VS ETHAN DRUNK
Absent from the screens since 2018, Ryan Gosling isn’t there to cut the pearls, but instead to interrupt the presence of a quantity of interchangeable extras, by tying up supposedly iconic replicas.

Invincible, but unable to escape his pursuer, able to turn any bitterness into a gum pie on condition that his friend save his ass, The “six” lends itself as much to the muscular first class as it does to the students of pastiche. However, the actor excels on both records, as always an essential reminder nice guys.

The man with the golden perm
A customs officer’s incestuous mustache, a carnivorous smile more than unemployment insurance reform, palpable exhilaration in the accomplishment of many transgressions, the bad guy. The opponent who lends the Captain America translator his features is A constant source of bypass, which managed to push some comedic bumps into the story. Everything is written in a way that makes fun of without preaching, so many traditional traits of Hollywood masculinity, stepping aside more than once. Nothing fancy of course, or downright original, but a commitment on the part of the duo of actors that in some places compensates for the invalidity of writing as well as the lack of stakes.

Those who primarily aspire to leave their brains in the garage will be able to get some satisfaction from viewing, thanks to the steady rhythm and a clear desire to put most European tourist offices out of business. It’s very simple, and we sometimes wonder if a blockbuster movie is not an excuse to allow initiators to take a short tour of the real estate market in the Schengen area, only to speculate or renovate their second home.
The result : Great variety of places visited, sometimes hilarious, sometimes sadisticbut always immediately, in discovering the spaces in which the characters move.

Even in his gentle, coarse costumes, but gentle gaudy, gray man Similar to James Bond’s Mongolian, he is a fictional evocation and retreat for his own references.

For Russos, Joker is better off compensating for spatial mismanagement (at the risk of flattening movement), at worstSterile coquette, waved to serve as transmission Once the characters visit a new place. If the whole is crossed with “cool”, sometimes stunning images, then at no time will all this be thought of as a series of items to put together.
Each hero is now a potential superhero, so above any form of stakes or threat it is no longer necessary to approach them through the slashes. And so we remain amazed by the flat piece of Vienna, in the middle of the film as well as its promotion. Lots of funny ideas pass before our eyesfrom chasing at the wrong time, bolstered by surrounding reflective surfaces, through motionless shooting when our hero finds himself handcuffed to a seat, to name just a few of these two little finds.
But nothing is contextualized, cut, put into perspective, edited as well as framing, and he never questions the meaning of what is being said. Who are the opponents? How many are they? Why are they constantly dying? We don’t care about steaks. Competent producers and incapable filmmakers, the Russians made a film that looked like them: comfortably inconsistent.
