Perry Cononge’s review published on Letterboxd:
Bumping it up to 4 & 1/2 stars, because DAMN this movie is just pure, unadulterated fun. It’s akin to the biggest and best theme park rides out there. I love the energy and fluidity of the camera. The world presented here is so well realized and wonderous. That initial race sequence literally made me grin like the Cheshire Cat.
Having read the book, I didn’t mind the changes. That’s what Spielberg is great at, taking amazing source material and making it even better. God, what a rush of cinematic bliss.
