Helander breaks Aatami’s journey and subsequent war with Nazis into chapters, each one with the aim of topping what came before. It’s a steady and well-paced escalation of tensions and violence, driving the story across the land with multiple impressive set pieces and action sequences. Helander wants to keep topping the madness, rarely offering a reprieve from the raucous mayhem. His orchestrated action and gory antics get your fist-pumping from the first grisly and well-earned Nazi kill, but it’s only a light warm-up for the bone-crunching, explosion-filled grudge match that ensues. (Meagan Navarro, Bloody Disgusting)
