Fargo 2: Die Farger

Can we all stop pretending this Fargo series is anything but a utterly pointless, interminably extended and bluntly idiotic rehashing of a film that was perfect in its isolation, please?

I don’t mean to moan (I do) but everything about it is so forced and contrived that I can only imagine the Coens put their names on the thing because they were so damn amused by the fact that someone was doing a bad impression of them they found its existence just too amusingly absurd that they just had to let this lifeless turd slide out into the world.

Seriously. There’s nothing fresh or sincere (which the original movie, despite being a deliciously black comedy, most certainly is) about the thing, and I get the feeling most are giving it a pass because it reminds them of something else they really like, but a nostalgia high can only get you so far.

Oh, and it really needs to be said that Martin Freeman is the most overrated comic actor of his generation. It’s not a performance; it’s overzealous puppetry.

Okay. Rant over.

Sorry about that.
