Review – The Devil All The Time (2020)

by Old King Clancy

When I saw the trailer for Netflix’s new film, The Devil All The Time, I was surprised that I hadn’t heard a lot about it given the cast, but a dark tale of pre-Vietnam Americana bolstered by some big names, I was interested.

You can probably name many other important events, even some from your personal life, but it is wild to think that it has been seventeen years since Bad Boys II. The franchise, which started in 1995, and gave way to a sequel in 2003, has always been a beloved one with the public.

The question is, is this a legit sequel or a half-hearted opportunity to cash in on a popular property?
