Not woke

A couple of DIE casting, but minor roles. No woke themes though. Has a "Kingsman" feel to it with the silliness of some scenes. Because, spoiler alert, it is. It's apart of the Kingsman series.

Underrated film

Unexpectedly enjoyed this one. I admit is was a little silly and the oil scene was over the top, but it was an enjoyable film with a good enough story, and best of all. Didn’t notice any wokeness.

Zany CIA propaganda

Barry White and disco tracks set the mood for a zany action comedy flick along the lines of the 1976 Charlie's Angels series but woke. I hated it.

I count 3 woke violations. Vague spoilers follow.

1. As is the norm in Saudi Arabia, the leader of Saudi intelligence is a woman.

2. There are all too many scenes with the lead actress' CGI-enhanced booty shaking all over the place as this very thicc actress (or more likely stunt doubles and CGI) nimbly jumps and martial arts kicks her way out of trouble. This is a bit woke, as overweight women are not going to be capable of this. I realize it's supposed to be funny. It's not.

3. There is a bit of the most pernicious form of wokeness here: love of the CIA. In our reality, the CIA promotes wokeness and the CIA itself. In the movie, the CIA is presented as the good guys, with Samuel L. Jackson as the fatherly "former" CIA deputy director. MKUltra gets a large role in this film, but it's presented in a comically unrealistic way. ("See? MKUltra is just a batshit crazy conspiracy theory!") And it's "the bad guys" who use MKUltra, not the hyper-honorable CIA, of course. "The bad guys" are a rival spy agency with British accents, so I assume they are supposed to be MI6. (Bart Simpson: "What an odd thing to say.")

Overall, it's a bit like if they had decided to make The Matrix as a comedy with its core message being pro-CIA propaganda. It does not work for me.

Unentertaining feminist lecture with a body-positive strong female lead, a weak male lead, subverted male role models, and a cheap scenario

Shallow, strong female character beating tens of males with no effort, body positivity, weak male lead, white male villain (who oppressed the strong female), DIE casting, diverse characters in (non-villainous) power positions…it’s all there.

There is even a clumsy subliminal propaganda scene where the strong male character disappears in the mirror, saying “you don’t need me anymore”, after which he is replaced by the reflection of the strong female character. Similarly, the strong male character is quickly replaced by his weak male counterpart in the first minutes. The strongest character is the obese female lead, who also beats the weak male lead, effectively establishing her as the most powerful character in the movie.

The male role models, Cavill and Cena, are used to as bait to draw the audiences to the theaters and they hardly have screen time. An honest movie poster would have them in the very back, and the strong female lead in the front together with the weak male lead.

Woke from the start.

There are several reviews here that point out the woke-ness, so I wont ramble on about it. But I'm disturbed by how many reviews have overlooked the woke in this film. How can you not see it? Do you actually even understand what your looking for? or what WOKE Means?
Be Wary of whos reviews your reading.
