Get horny.

YT Industries: “Return of the Goat II: New World Order” - 22 mins 40s

We can't help but feel YT Industries missed a trick with the sequel to 2018's 'Return of the Goat'. Surely 'Return of the Goat Returns' would have been the perfect title. Perhaps they’re saving it for the threequel instead.

For now, 'New World Order' is another slick entry in the bike maker’s batshit marketing campaign. A wider scope (more characters, a global conspiracy, etc,) leads to a twenty-two-minute running time, which is a hefty commitment even for YT diehards.

Fortunately, director Otto Bathurst delivers both vehicular action and a competent sense of dread throughout. Jack Sedgwick's sound design also deserves mention, as crunchy audio effects round off proceedings.

However, a late cameo from the ubiquitous Mads Mikkelsen is more distracting than gripping. One half-expects him to pull a pint of Carlsberg from his jacket.
