“Deliver Us from Evil”, delivers some pretty spectacularly bad screenwriting that makes for more than a few moments of unintentional laughter. Worse off, this is another film that way overstays its welcome with its obese running time, so much so that you might need a Priest to exorcise you from the demon of boredom.
Explosions, explosions, slo-mo explosions, followed by a smidge of exposition, followed by explosions, explosion, slo-mo explosions with a wisecrack or two. If this is your bag than Michael Bay will never face extinction.
“They Came Together” may not have reached the heights of “Wet Hot American Summer”, but it still nails its target, delivering some very memorable “out there” moments, and best yet, creating a comedy with a very high rewatchable factor.
I could go on my usual “Tom Cruise is so talented and just might be my favorite actor” rant, but I won’t, just know he brings his usual incredible fine tuned intensity, charm, and humor to make this film a really fun time at the movies.
