A sequel made for (and funded by) Super Troopers die-hards. It’s hard to imagine the uninitiated getting much out of it.
Engages because the actors are sufficiently invested that they give breadth and depth to characters who are, for the most part, underwritten.

Compensates for narrative hiccups by offering an effective performance by Ben Kingsley and a story that goes to places many similar films would avoid.
A hard-to-swallow drama about sibling rivalry, mental illness, and bad therapy, it's cobbled together using clichés and contrivances.
Starts strongly but the qualities that make the first 20 minutes harrowing drain away and the movie morphs into an unsatisfying excursion into fantasy-tinged horror.
A-level special effects can’t elevate "Rampage" above its B-grade aspirations.
For anyone who cares about the things that make horror worthwhile, "Truth or Dare" isn’t just a misfire, it’s a travesty.
An imperfect thriller but one that expects the audience to pay attention and that doesn’t pander to the least common denominator.
A superb exercise in understated terror that puts to shame “horror” films that rely on jump scares and cheap theatrics.
