Did we miss something on diversity?

Suitably entertaining...

It is a film that exceeds expectations but mostly because the expectations for a third film are quite low. Josh Brolin nails it and the chemistry between Smith and Brolin is quite convincing. A sentimental story that lands well even if it is a bit contrived. Overall a fun ride with enough action and mayhem to keep you engrossed in what happens next.
