John Wick meets the Call Of Duty campaign…
- Camera angles were easy to follow and the camera trail scenes were epic.
- The gunplay and fighting weren’t cutting too much (see Taken).
- Stunts like Mission Impossible.
- Close-combat action was well-coordinated.
- Enough militarized cops in the city to keep you entertained the entire movie.
- The ladies love Chris Hemsworth.
- The storyline is predictable, and also doesn’t really have a gripping plot.
- The protagonist doesn’t have much depth.
- The movie was supposedly taking place in Bangladesh, but the scenery was off.
- The accents weren’t accurate.
- Kidnappers really had no motive.
- Many filler scenes in the middle of the movie.
The Overall Review
This movie is badass.
Regardless of the apparent negatives, you can tell a lot of time and effort went into the filming of this movie (this is probably why the storyline fell flat). The action is intense and fulfilling with every “weapon” being used in a scene.
The main character doesn’t have access to bottomless magazines filled with bullets, which also adds to the authenticity of the film. Tyler, Chris Hemsworth’s character, is never developed to the point where he pulls on your heart-strings, but his hardened veteran attitude and brute strength will make you forget about all that.
You won’t be disappointed with this movie.
For a drinking game, read through user reviews and take a shot every time a Bangladeshi complains about how their country is poorly portrayed.
