  • Just plain dumb fun (and good acting)
    November 18, 2015

    I read many reviewers or people in the board trying to say it's a bad film... ignore them. It's 95 minutes of pure dumb fun. But in a good and entertaining way. The acting from all the cast is good. Robert DeNiro screen time may not be as much as i would like to (i would say 15-20 minutes) but he is good every minutes of it.

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan as your main actor is very good, he is not doing a bad job at all. This is by no mean a small budget, approx 22 millions. and they got a cool main villain in Dave Bautista (Batista to all of us WWE Wrestling Fans). To me, he is better as an actor than a wrestler and he found his niche. He is convincing and act crazy most of the time because his character goes from a guy wanting to do an heist to a guy that want them all to die. He is good in this.

    Gina Carino is not my favorite, i loved her in Haywire but that's about it. Here, she is OK in her role, the fact is that the director seems to know how to put on a complete film even if it's not the most intelligent so far.

    I have seen two underrated film this week, this and The Guest and i can tell you one thing, both are awesome in their own ways ! 9/10 may be too much but for an action thriller, it deserve that.
