Gunn is unbound by the restrictions of a PG-13 rating, something else the material really needed. Hence, the film is vivid, violent and vulgar, yet at the same time, seldom feels pandering or gratuitous. Punctuated by gobs of gags and hilarious dialogue, the movie earns its dismemberments and f-bombs along the way. In fact, the whole thing plays very much like Guardians of the Galaxy without a filter.
This film won’t redefine the action genre in the way John Wick did years ago, but again it’s not trying to be anything other than what it is, a buddy action comedy for this generation.
Idris Elba is good here and if given a better script and more time I think he could really flesh out the Gunslinger character
I really liked this, one of the better animation films I’ve seen in awhile, it made me laugh and smile, the direction was good and it was just a very good popcorn crowd pleasing movie.
James Watkins’s third feature film sees him make a departure from horror and tackle the action/drama genre with Bastille Day. It’s a taut and pacy affair, which follows a young pickpocket inadvertently caught up in a suspected Parisian terrorist attack and his attempts to clear his name, whilst finding the real culprits alongside an uncompromising CIA agent.
