FOCUS ON THE EYES-PANOPTICON?
Here’s my pitch for the sequel: Nick Fury shows up, basically. Like, there’s no way that anyone comes away from the end of this film and is all, “Oh, you weren’t in control but now you are? Cool, cool, you’re free to go.” So instead, the sequel is basically Suicide Squad. She’s got an explosive collar or some shit rigged up for when Gabriel inevitably goes rogue again, and she gets sent on black bag operations for the government or whoever and in exchange they don’t kill her or lock her in a box 24/7.

i can not put into words my absolute seething hatred for this movie. this is like if spirit halloween and lifetime fucked in a dirty coke haze at a frat party and produced a child. the scoring was maybe the most poorly timed i have ever fucking seen, using combinations of the euphoria and john wick soundtrack. if they put in one more shot of that fucking stupid full house looking home i was going burn amc to the ground. i literally physically tensed every time they showed it because it happened every two minutes. the writing must have been done on a napkin at a truck stop in ohio next to a hallmark store for inspiration. the blatant racist fucking stereotypes portrayed throughout the whole film felt like they were trying to throw in scary movie jokes in an attempt to cover the straight up racism.
WUT? Also on the note of this terrible movie, the knife used in the flashback scene is the same holster and butt as a OXO checks knife which came out in the 2000/s but it was shown in the 80s. Prop department needs to do their job
Also another just said “Harry Potter” LOL or “Worse than the emoji movie”
