REVIEW

A well-crafted work of art with an excellent cast (standout performances included from Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Lakeith Steinfeld and Toni Collete), a well-paced runtime and a mystery story that will leave you thinking you know the answer until the very end shocks you. This movie only proves that Rian Johnson should still direct his Star Wars trilogy at Disney.
