Aussie boy's thoughts
Guy Ritchie’s exciting action sequences slowly become incapable to save the increasingly-sluggish pace. This usually happens over the draggy runtime of almost 2 full hours. Thankfully, this action-stocked crime-thriller will entertain or at least distract the viewer due to Jason Statham’s great acting and a very fine plot.
The lack of comical aspect and enthusiasm, in addition to the often dull rapidity and poor character development is what could’ve significantly been improved for Wrath of Man to be fully ideal. Everybody wants a fast, moving and gripping story, accompanied by strong personalities. Wrath of Man certainly could’ve and should’ve joined that feedback with what they originally included, with the same runtime. Unfortunately, it fails to do so, and true Guy Ritchie fans won’t appreciate absence of good humour.
Although the story and the heist isn’t worth a cinema-viewing, it’s solidly worthwhile. The hype is also a little too far, but Wrath of Man is only a likeable and acceptable flick due to the amazing plot. It’s well-designed and frequently manages to entertain.
