  • Cruella can't quite answer the question of why its title character needed an origin story, but this dazzling visual feast is awfully fun to watch whenever its leading ladies lock horns.

    Does Satan himself have an origin story that makes his evil understandable, even excusable? The ending of Cruella suggests as much.

    Cruella does what all bad prequels do, answering questions no one is asking.
