The recently released World War II action movie, “Sisu,” has been reviewed by the New York Times Arts section. According to their review, the film features a seemingly invincible former commando who goes on a rampage. The reviewer describes the movie as “blandly gratuitous,” lacking in substance and meaning.
The movie, titled after a Finnish concept of resilience and perseverance, fails to live up to its namesake. The main character’s invincibility and the lack of character development make the film unengaging and tedious. The reviewer also criticizes the film’s use of violence, which he believes is excessive and unnecessary.
Furthermore, the reviewer notes that the movie is sweat-wicking – a term that in this context means that it’s a forgettable and unremarkable film that doesn’t leave a lasting impression. The action sequences lack creativity and imagination, making them feel repetitive and uninspired.
Overall, the review of “Sisu” by the New York Times Arts section is not positive. The film’s lack of depth, character development, and creativity make it a forgettable experience. Although the concept of “sisu” may be admirable, the movie bearing its name fails to inspire and falls short of expectations.
