Borat 2 - Borat Subsequent Moviefilm review: Our thoughts
Back in 2006, Borat, a Kazakhstani reporter was sent to the USA to make a documentary on the country. After 14 long years, Borat 2: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm marks the return of Borat. Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, to use its full name, is a 2020 mockumentary comedy movie directed by Jason Woliner.
Borat 2: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm starts off with Borat’s release from the gulag, where he’s been since the release of Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, the first Borat movie which was released back in 2006. Borat is released and sent back to the USA to help rebuild the reputation of Kazakhstan and to gift Vice President Mike Pence with Kazakhstan’s Minister of Culture and No.1 porn star, Jonny the Monkey.
Upon Borat’s arrival to the USA, whilst opening the crate of Jonny the Monkey, he discovers that Tutar, his 15-year-old daughter had snuck inside the crate and ate the monkey during its delivery, changing the course of the plot.
Borat 2: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is an amazing movie and a great sequel to Borat’s debut in 2006. Whilst some people may find this movie very offensive, it’s important to remember Borat 2 is a comedy mockumentary where Sacha Baron Cohen portrays the character of Borat, a wildly uneducated and clueless reporter in the modern world who navigates his way through America, meeting people along the way who teach both him and his daughter important lessons.
If you can look beyond the offensiveness, you’ll find that Borat 2 is an absolute masterpiece. The acting from Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) and Maria Bakalova (Tutar) is unmatched like we’ve never seen before. In fact, whilst filming this mockumentary, Sacha Baron Cohen spent five days with pro-conservatives Jerry Holleman and Jim Russell without breaking character once.
Borat’s daughter, Tutar, whose character is played by the incredibly talented Maria Bakalova, also played a huge role in the movie’s success. Tutar, who’s just as uneducated about modern society as Borat, brings a whole new depth to their journey. Along her journey with Borat, she encounters a handful of individuals who teach her important lessons, not just about the world, but about her life and how she’s in charge of herself.
Our favourite part of Borat 2 is when Borat and Tutar pull off a daring exposé on Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s lawyer, all without breaking character once. We don’t want to spoil what happens, but for them both to stay in character during the whole exposé is not only daring but requires great skill and dedication to their roles.
Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) was so impressed by Maria Bakalova (Tutar) that he believes “if she doesn’t get nominated for an Oscar, then that’s a travesty.” And we have to agree here, she was absolutely incredible playing Tutar, and brought a whole new depth to the movie.
Overall, if you can look past the offensiveness, Borat 2: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is an incredible movie and will definitely make you laugh. If you haven’t seen Borat 2 yet, we highly recommend you watch Borat 2: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, exclusive to Amazon Prime Video.
