A woman is abducted and a man comes to her rescue, but during their escape they find themselves in the enemy’s secret headquarters. This classic plot conceals an hommage to action movies. A tour de force through film history, from its silent beginnings to present-day Hollywood.

Pretty fun with an interesting selection of films and their tropes. It's deliberately chaotic and technically impressive, though I didn't find it all that interesting until things accelerated and by then it had won me over. Marvellous!
At least 30 moments of brilliance speed chaotically, sometimes clumsily past. Outside perspective of Hollywood cliches yet playing directly to them. Enough humor and creative wonder to ignite the viewer in this refreshing treatment of Hollywood.
Fun, if film-schoolish, mix-and-match mash-up of cinematic tropes, deconstructed to their constituent elements, and re-animated as clumsy cut-outs of themselves to highlight the vulgar, if wonderful, puppetry they represent. The concept allows for amateurish realization, so, benefit of the doubt, there… Happily, it also calls for brevity! Somewhere between forgivable and well done. 2.5
