An opportunity to re-examine ‘70s attitudes through the lens of ‘10s perceptions, "BlacKkKlansman" is equally entertaining and disturbing.
Despite having two inherently likable actors, the characters are so disagreeable that it’s difficult to become sympathetic toward their whirlwind affair.
As the credits roll with most of the major plot threads unresolved, the frustration is palpable when one recognizes that there will be no second installment.
The biggest crime of "The Spy Who Dumped Me" isn’t its dearth of humor or reliance on an unimaginative espionage plot but the way it wastes the talents of its leads.
It’s supposed to be a screwball comedy but someone forgot to include the laughs.
Although the production is too long and overreaches, it has a bizarre, crazy appeal that’s difficult to shrug off.

The first movie does a better job of everything this one does rendering the second installment redundant – painless but purposeless.
Viewers are saddled with a generic slasher flick, a predictably high body count, and a story that relies more on gore than suspense for its substance.
Plodding, repetitive, replete with technobabble nonsense and lifeless action, this is easily the worst-written of any of the 20 to-date MCU offerings.
One of the bleakest films of 2018 and shouldn’t be seen by anyone expecting a few lighthearted jump-scares.
