The follow-up to 2018’s odd and violent super…hero(?) origin story, this sequel simply brings us more of the same. Tom Hardy is still great, Michelle Williams is still criminally underused, and the cartoonish violence and madcap hijinks are still off-the-charts bonkers. Add in Woody Harrelson as the bad guy, and you’re in business. Aimed squarely at the teen-boy/testosterone set, it’s as if Michael Bay tried his hand at a Marvel movie. Take that for what it’s worth.

3/5 stars
