I’ll preface this by saying that I tried really hard not to get any spoilers. Then, on my way into the movie theater, there were a ton of people headed *out* who were discussing every detail. Talk about spoilers… it was rather frustrating for me, but overall didn’t impact my enjoyment of the movie as much as I feared.
It’s hard to say much about the movie without getting into the heavy spoiler department. There’s a lot of emotional stuff. There’s a fair bit of fan-service. There’s something for just about everyone. Some of the humor is spot on. Some of it is so far off base that I’m left scratching my head. The major emotional stuff hits home and it does so very well and doesn’t pull any punches.
The movie doesn’t stop. Be fully prepared to be locked in your seat for that three hours. This is a movie with very real stakes and they make it clear from the beginning that things aren’t going to be all happiness and light. The acting is great, the actors are fully invested, and the sequences and staging of the story are fantastic.
Sit back and enjoy the ride is my best advice. Also, maybe wear earplugs while you’re walking in so you don’t have the biggest twists and turns given away by people walking out of the theater.
