Loved Renfield. Much more wry and nuanced than I expected.
Cage commits himself fully to the role of a monster. Hoult plays the perfect antihero seeking redemption. Awkwafina is utterly convincing as the one good cop against a corrupt system. And I don’t think there is a misstep among any of the rest of the cast.
Ridley’s script is spot-on as well. And the over-the-top gore keeps the mood neither too dark nor too light. Overall, I’d say McKay has done a marvelous job of walking that tightrope.
