Chris Hemsworth single-handedly decimates the population of Bangladesh by about 15 percent in this film. He plays a mercenary who’s tasked with recovering the teenage son of an incarcerated crime lord from a rival. The action in this is pretty much non stop and impressively choreographed. Brutally violent and intense as once he has the kid in his possession, trying to get him out of the city to safety proves incredibly challenging as every cop, criminal and street kid is out to kill them.
Jake McDorman plays Philip Markoff, a medical student and good looking fella whose got a deviant side by placing and answering sex related ads on Craigslist and escalating his escapades by killing the women he’s meeting up with. Meanwhile his beautiful fiancé played by Agnes Bruckner is none the wiser. Based on the true story, this made for TV movie is good, but I think it would be much more effective without the parameters of what can be done on TV.
I was excited to see this movie but have been let down by high expectations before. This not only met the high expectations but exceeded them. David Gordon Green’s love letter to John Carpenter is both familiar in a good way and updated, erasing the past missteps of many of the franchises sequels.
Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode forty years since the events of the original Halloween and is still obsessively preparing for her inevitable next…
I loved the original Sicario so I had hopes that this sequel would be at least comparable.
Here Josh Brolin’s character is brought in to head up a mission to pit the Mexican cartels against each other by any means necessary.
This was exciting, intense and highly entertaining. Great cast with the also returning Benicio Del Toro.
I was blown away with how much I loved this movie.
A must see.
