I found this movie infinitely more entertaining than Cocaine Bear. It's absolutely silly fun, and my only complaint is that the body count wasn't higher. My heart was absolutely won by the murderous hashtag happy sloth.

That's a useful review. Thank you! I've been thinking of watching it because it looks silly-fun.

I was so bored by this movie. I watched it because a review promised wacky hijinks like miss-lapin said, but I didn't find anything funny. I found all the pretend Americans to be weird, and pretend America to be weird. The pacing was all over the map. All the boring bits were so very long and stupid, and fun gory bits were short and not gory enough. There were so many plot holes. Nobody noticed dead bodies for like a week? Stuff just sort of happens and then the movie pivots on a dime to something completely different with zero resolution to what just happened. I will, however, gives big props to the sloth puppet. There was not NEARLY enough killer sloth action.

I bought this, sight unseen, I was so sure I was going to love it. I did not.
