Wrath of Man

Wrath of Man ★★★★

Ritchie ditches his usual frenetic pace and editing for a revenge/heist movie that moves through several threads surrounding a spate of cash truck robberies.

It's not a slow movie but like the film's protagonist it moves steadily forward for the majority of its two hour runtime before ratcheting up the energy for the final heist. Wish I went into this blind because the whole middle third unravels as if you weren't aware of the crux of the film's plot which is revealed in the trailer.

Some of the dialogue felt a bit too written which only stands out because it clashes with attempts at naturalistic dialogue as the security crew banter almost to the point of parody. Pick a lane, I guess.

Also really dug the score in this, menacing and full of dread.

This is the first time I've enjoyed watching Scott Eastwood, man needs to play more villains and capitalize on my preexisting hate for him.

Move over Cooter Scriggins, Boy Sweat Dave is the new top name in cinema.
