BORAT2 SUBSEQUENT FILM – Yes, Sacha Baron Cohen is back in a rehash, or rather a continuation of his “BORAT” character in this sequel. Now streaming on Amazon Prime, it is there for your viewing pleasure. But does this “Kazakhstani” entertain us?? Well like I said the surprise factor, and the ridiculousness is there, but more diluted this time.
This time the comedy satire comes back to look at “Trump’s America”, and how we are doing during the pandemic. This time he has a 15 year old daughter that he wants to give as gift to the Vice President Michael Pence. Borat’s daughter played by Maria Bakalova is portrayed as the “Bride gift”, and how she is part of the undercover mission. It all appears so demeaning, But its all intended to wake us up and see how socially for woman and for mankind on how vastly wrong we have become.
The concept of showing our dire straits America is facing, is all relevant, but the impact gets dry towards the end of the film. The highlight is the uncompromising position that former Mayor Rudy Guiliani is in, when he is in a hotel for an interview. To me I felt he got caught. It looked real. Overall the film is an average affair, and gets a 2 and a half star recommendation. Courtesy Awesome TV & Being Filmy!
