You might even want to turn this off and watch some action. It starts weird, pretentious and slow. Just like Swiss Army Man, which is another level of pretentiousness, which I skipped-forward to watch this one. And I feel lucky for giving this movie more time to get going. At some point, it switches gear and slowly grabs you. Then it gets better and better, reaching the culmination right at the last scene.
