Jason Statham keeps on shooting action movies! After “The Meg” and “Hobbs & Shaw”, the actor stars in “Wrath of Man”, a picture movie directed by Guy Ritchie opening on June 16, 2021 in France. It is a remake of French film “Cash Truck” by Nicolas Boukhrief out in 2004.
As for the cast, in addition to Statham as the mysterious truck driver, the movie stars Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad, Snowden…), Josh Harnett (Oh Lucy!, Most Wanted…), Jeffrey Donovan (Sicario: Day of the Soldado, Lucy in the Sky…), as well as Raúl Castillo (Knives Out, Army of the Dead…). The movie looks nerve-wracking, but here is the trailer!
A recently hired cash escort (Statham) amazes his colleagues with his incredible sense of precise return shots as they are being attacked by skilled armed robbers. They now all wonder who he is, where he comes from, and why he is here.
Guy Ritchie is back and in tip-top shape with “Wrath of Man”, a nerve-wracking, dynamic, and cadenced movie in the shots and the story-telling. A film without lengthy sections and interesting, not linear nor convoluted, making of it something captivating from the first seconds to the very last minutes. We also appreciate Statham’s performance who – although his character is rather bland – has an incredible presence in front of the camera.
Yet, we regret the easy to see through scenario, predictable to the very details, until the end, perhaps too close to the requirements, but it does not prevent to enjoy this action-filled movie, well-choreographed and delightfully bloody. An action movie that works, but that could have been a tad more solid – whether it involves the scenario or the characters’ arches. A must-see if you love this genre!
