Big heart, hot blood and balls. Big balls

Yeah, just got back from Sizu.Sisu
I went to the unlimited preview screening last night. Overall I really enjoyed it. I was a little nervous at first about whether it would live up to the trailer. It starts slow, after a voiceover that felt like it wouldn't be out of place as the opening monologue to some 80s action cartoon. An initial dialogue free 'chapter' as we meet our hero and see him start his journey.
Then it picks up when he starts crossing paths with the Nazis.
The violence is over-the-top, comically so at times, but the films itself isn't especially 'silly'. There have been comparisons to John Wick because it's an older person kicking ass. The violence is funnier, but it's a similar 'look, this is a ridiculous premise, but we're going to treat it seriously' approach.
Plus, it's only 90mins long!
Great fun, like Tarentino making a European WW2 Western Rambo
