Its almost comical how they found a solution to what made him utterly boring in other films and then they immediately piss all over said solution so they can throw more CGI bull**** at us. The most tense fight scene i've seen that character in was when they were fleeing the yakuza right after the funeral, i genuinely bought into it. Meanwhile all the world shattering super powered fights of the previous movies just bored me or made me roll my eyes. So naturally, instead of continuing the human drama and situations that we could buy into, they throw more super powered fights at our face
Famke Janssen stole every scene she was in. Outstanding stuff. When she appeared while he was sleeping with the Mariko it was chilling to me. Her lack of recrimination as she calmly asked
what he was doing before calmly stating that it was all going to end horrible was brilliant. Just extremely well executed. Had she been ranting or raving i doubt i would have even remembered the scene. If she was icy cold i would have shrugged. Janssen sold it perfectly.
