Wrath of Man

Wrath of Man ★★★

I never have a problem with watching schlock as long as it’s self aware and it delivers the goods. This is schlock, but it’s schlock done perfectly. It knows what it is, it’s paced incredibly well, with raw and unpolished action. And despite having a call to action that’s been done to death, the structure of the mystery and characters is intriguing enough to keep you guessing. 

I really loved The Gentleman, and I really enjoyed this too. It seems like Guy Ritchie has been getting some hate recently, but I don’t get it at all. If this film had tighter dialogue and a bit more Ritchie flair with its characters I think that would’ve helped. And as always, Ritchie makes a lot of interesting decisions behind the camera: some work, others do not. 

I was definitely surprised by how much I enjoyed this, and I can’t wait for Guy’s film next year.
