    ★★

    Not the random return of Josh Hartnett, nor a welcome cameo from Post Malone, could liven up this joyless slab of tough guy cinema from Guy Ritchie.

    Good for a few bits of tough guy shit talk, and one okay-ish shoot ‘em up sequence early on, but that’s about all the praise I can muster for Wrath of Man, which quickly devolves into a bloated movie with multiple time jumps, chapter headings (can we stop with the chapter headings already?!), and…

    1. WHAT WAS HER DEAL? Was she a drugged out hair fetishist? 
    2. It’s clear she’s way into hair and the Society species isn’t, so... is she some other organism in a skin suit, or is she just a freak?
    3. So I guess after our heroes barely escape the party, they what... just leave that mom there??
