Wrath of Man

Wrath of Man ★★★½

The new Guy Ritchie action movie Wrath of Man isn't one of his best movies or a fantastic action movie, but it features enough good things for it not to be a disaster and I actually think that it is a fun action movie.
Probably the biggest mistake this film made is that it felt like it took itself too seriously. Everything about this felt like it should have been just a cheesy movie, but Ritchie decided to make it a serious action movie.
The action part of this movie is very good, but like most movies like this, it doesn't feature a great plot or characters. The characters are mostly one-dimensional while the plot takes itself too seriously.
Apart from those things, I thought this was alright. The action scenes weren't bad, they weren't the best things you'll see, but they had good moments. The best action scene was the final heist and I thought that part was very good.
One puzzling part about this movie is the music. I can't say that it was great because it was a very odd choice. The best way to describe this music is that it is a Nolan movie inspired score. If you listen to it on its own, I actually think that it would be a good score, but its use is very odd. For the first 20 to 30 minutes the music doesn't actually change and the music didn't really fit the tone most of that time. Someone would be making a joke and this serious score would be playing in the background and that just didn't really make much sense.
Overall, this is a solid action movie with an underwhelming first part, but it does get better over time.
