Wrath of Man more-resembles Jason Statham’s overall body of work than Guy Ritchie’s (though it is the director’s best film in ten years). There’s nothing about the film that resonates much afterwards, but it’s stylishly made and a lot of fun in the moment, with a solid story boosted by taut action and a sizable body count. I think Bronson would approve.
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.
In all honesty, you’ll probably already know the general plot if you’ve ever seen anything resembling a shark film before.
The set up is fine and I think Statham does good work here, he’s mastered the anti-hero stance where he doesn’t want to help but you know he will and his back story here is dark.
I didn’t mind the film but man it should have been more fun but I will say I didn’t mind watching it as it’s fun to see these many action stars together I just wished they were in a better film.
Statham is good here, you should never forget that he’s a good actor not just a good action guy.
