This is one of the best sequels ever made and especially one of the best third films in a franchise. It definitely kinda falls apart in the last 15 minutes or so (especially considering how awesome it would’ve been if they used that insane alternate ending) but it’s still a heart-pounding, tension-filled thrill ride that never gives you a second to breathe and I love how it’s kinda relevant today with its racially charged subtext. And of course, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. have dynamite chemistry. Also, Jerry the construction man is a legend and I don’t think I’ll ever fully comprehend the water jug task.
