  • Even patriotic films can be good

    Like "Wolf warriors 2" this movie great not because its patriotic (really I live far away from this countries and I totally don't care), but because its great even its extreme patriotic! Why you can appreciate stupid chapiteau like Spielberg's 1941, with all his anti-jap propaganda, but can't see how serious Battleship island... or why you not crapping on explo like "Son of Saul"? So if you not like this kind of hypocrite - you really can enjoy this film. Its good in action, good in drama, actor play - really great. Hard 10 of 10.
