So much hate for this movie, for no reason. I had a good time. Shea was pretty damn good in this and I've never been a huge fan of his. If you enjoy David Ayers films, then ignore the hate and just give it a try.
Shia did great, but he wasnt the main character.The acting by David could have been better, it almost seemed like he was reading off of cue cards in some scenes.And the girl who played the wife Alexis... her lips are so full of filler and it was so distracting during the movie! Her and David are supposed to have a passionate marriage, so they kiss a lot. There are a lot of close ups of the married couple- and all I could focus on was her lips full of filler. Jesus.
This movie has potential but everything goes to heck because of the extremely bad script.
First, you need to wait almost 60 minutes of 90 to see something interesting. Second, when the action starts everything goes extremely fast. Shia's character was barely developed. Are you serious?
Last, Fx's look cheap and acting amateurish, except from Shia. But...So, overall a wasted opportunity to create a great movie. Shame on Director 's and writers. Make yourself a favor and watch Sicario 1 and 2 instead watching this one.
Best part of this movie, the trailer. pretty funny he got real tattoos for this role for as bad as the movie was.
It's a bit like a film student and a few extras had an afternoon off, and played with a camera .The story couldn't be more basic, acting and dialogues are cringeworthy, never credible, just very amateurish .
Thinking it was going to be a badass gangster movie instead turn out to be boring and just bad cinema.
If you like gangster movies and you want to watch one that doesn't follow the same story as every single other one you'll like it. It made me laugh and made me say, "Oh s$@t" a couple times.
It's generic. I thought it would be better. The women in the movie are beautiful. The story is generic. It's every hood movie ever made. I've been drinking and couldn't even get into it. Nothing stands out and makes it special. It's just a movie.
Granted it isn't going to win any awards but some of the reviews were straight up brutal - especially people who wouldn't like this kind of movie anyway and you can tell by their reviews.This was something half way decent to watch while waiting for some good movies to come back around. I gave it an extra star just because I thought it needed a little push.
