Wrath of Man (2021)
This movie was twisted and I loved it.
I was expecting just another Statham action, but it was more than that. There were plenty of characters that you learned about the entire length of the movie. You didn’t learn too much about their backstory nor too little. It was just right.
The problem however was, it was a Guy Ritchie piece…
No disrespect to the man, I’m just personally not a fan of how his movies are shot. Tarantino is the only director whose movies are shot out of order that I’ll watch consistently. Everyone else just doesn’t do it for me.
I feel that if this movie was shot start to finish with us learning about each character in CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER, I would’ve enjoyed it more.
Another thing was how they revealed the villain. It was basically the bad guy coming up to Jason Statham’s character and being like “Sup! I’m the bad guy”…Really? That’s the angle you decided on Guy?
But I did enjoy it and that’s saying something. I usually don’t love movies where the only goal of the main character is blow things up and kill everyone. But this movie had a dark edge to it that I didn’t see coming. I could see myself watching this again (especially since my local Regal opened back up) but not till I’ve seen Profile.
