Wolfenstein 2 and the Anatomy of a Blockbuster Hero

Sara Elsam of Eurogamer writes: “In film, the only recourse left for the Stallones and Lundgrens of 80s fame is parody. These days we tend toward John Wick over The Terminator, although key traits – unquenchable bloodlust, highly efficient – still remain.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus follows BJ and a motley of revolutionaries fighting a Nazi occupation of America. An enticing premise pertinent for these strange times, but one still based, at the core, on blowing up the baddies. However, unlike his triple-A counterparts, beneath BJ’s muscular steely-eyed veneer lies the soul of a poet.”
