…the movie just serves to let us know Turturro connects one of his most famous characters to his love of an aimless French film.
The biggest challenge for this viewer is when it comes to true crime sagas, Scorese peaked with Goodfellas and he’s never really come close since.
“Overall it’s a good, not great effort. The film is enjoyable if predictable. Norton’s ability to show a clean, multi-layered view of the politics that went into creating the city he loves so dearly is entertaining.”
The one who benefits most from this arrangement is Lilly’s Hope, who continually marches through each predicament with the smarts of Hermione and the physical prowess of Wonder Woman. She is the best part of Ant-Man and The Wasp. Nothing she does is done for the sake of being a woman or in spite of it. She’s out to accomplish objectives.

This movie is Paul Rudd, through and through. It is the role he’s deserved after a career of being the best part of every film he’s made. He does not waste his moment in the spotlight, and the film is all the better for it. There is heft to the film, but with his performance, it doesn’t have to be an obnoxious weight. If he’s not as serious as Captain America, he is every bit as earnest. Marvel’s Cinematic Universe needs Rudd every bit as much as it needs Downey, Jr. or Pratt.
