Wrath of Man

Wrath of Man ★★★½

In the opening scene, the acting and dialogue delivery are both really terrible. I mean REALLY terrible. I’m not sure what happened, but I nearly turned it off. Thankfully, those characters turned out to be rather disposable and the movie settles in after that. Wrath of Man doesn’t really feel like a typical Guy Ritchie film. I really liked that. Whereas The Gentlemen feels like Ritchie is trying to mimic the style, tone and structure of Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Wrath of Man shares more DNA with films like Heat and Den of Thieves. Full of your typical Jason Statham bad-assery, it’s a fun but dark revenge thriller with a dash of heist movie mixed in for good measure. I enjoyed this way more than I expected and I definitely think it’s worth checking out.
