Wrath of Man

Wrath of Man ★★★

This genre isn't generally my cup of tea, but I'll be damned if I didn't have a great time with this.

There's a level of bleakness and lack of corny aspects that really drew me in. This is definitely my favorite Jason Statham performance, and unlike other similar films, I feel like he was perfect for the role and nobody could have taken his place. There was even a sense of necessity for the time jumping and it didn't take away from the product whatsoever. I followed along completely and enjoyed watching everything unfold in the way that it did.

The only thing holding it back is the fact that it is incredibly by the books. Although Guy Ritchie has proven to be extremely proficient at directing action sequences, he's not necessarily the best writer. Except for that last line. That was amazing.

From the trailers, I didn't imagine I'd be saying this, but I truly did love Wrath of Man, and I might just consider revisiting it in IMAX.
