Review:  ★★★★☆

Aric and Ninjak are finally back together, paired on a mission to eradicate the radical Vine plantlings and work their way towards Trill.  Seeing them together for the first time since Book of Death, obviously the wounds of that have not healed.  Their relationship was already tenuous, but it has definitely gotten a bit worse.  The conflict between the two really pushes the story along, for what already is an action packed romp.  Buddy action comedies are always an enjoyable experience finding the two contrasting characters having to work together.  With two of Valiant’s greatest characters, the formula is perfected.
