"A series of non-committal, seemingly improvised scenes of waiting and being bored, elevated by Herzog's burgeoning sense of play and poetry of natural surroundings. But at this point, his wild man fireworks and a joker's borderline nihilistic weltanschauung are all he has - scenes of dutiful, chill Nazis discussing strategy don't just go nowhere, they turn around and eat themselves."

"First of all, Johnson’s jokes are so lame; their timing undercuts the weight of the drama, which, btw, just repurposes Abrams’ mythical vision into end fights, cliffhangers, and philosophical placeholders. As a result, all the new characters lose their charisma and the old ones, well, Mark Hamill gives it his all. I’m not denying the film its moments of pathos and beauty, but the fire is lost in an endless war, and "turns" from good to evil and back. Burn it to the ground, indeed."

"It functions exclusively as a metaphor, which is just another level of tiresome to me. And existentially speaking, isn't the whole religiously tainted oversimplification of life the (fundamental) burden of our time? Because after Noah and this, I'd ask Aronofsky to please step away from my front door."
