This is definitely not your average Guy Ritchie film. It is not light-hearted, albeit there is some slick dialogues. It has no comic appeal, albeit there is a bit of dry humor. Think of shortened edition of Michel Mann's "Heat" rather than "Snatch" or "Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels", and you'll got some understanding of what it's all about.

Jason Statham is perfectly fitting for the role of mysterious H., a character with dark past and blurred present. Again, it's not Statham typical B-movie action performance, since here thriller for the most part prevails over action. It's not entirely original work: Ritchie's film based on French Le Convoyeur (2004), but it's more of re-imagning than a direct copy or a straitforward remake.

Starts like action-comedy, but then getting more and more dark, as new elements of the story introduced. At some moments plot is a bit hard to follow due to non-linear structure, but the basic points are always intact. Some subplots seems lost by the third act, and its preventing film from being great. However, for the most part it's a very soild, if unusual, effort from Ritchie entetring to a more mature ground. In the end, it's a suspenseful heist movie involving betrayal, family tragedy and a huge, long, mercialess gunfight in the final act.

Sticking to the lower budget roots that got him a start in a big way thanks to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, Guy Ritchie has followed up his minor but well-received The Gentleman with Wrath of Man, a crime thriller that sees the divisive but entertaining director get his favorite lad Jason Statham back on leading man duties.

The last time these two long term friends teamed up was for the near forgotten about Revolver, a film that is actually a lot better than you may remember it being, and Wrath of Man is far more straight forward than that affair, with Ritchie remaking European film Cash Truck to deliver a hard-boiled and gritty 90's like action/thriller that gives Statham some of his best material in years.

It may surprise many that this reforming of Ritchie and Statham see's the usually flamboyant director dial things back a notch or two with his hyperkinetic visuals and edits few and far between here and his cockney tinged humor reigned right in as we instead get a mostly humorous free affair following Statham's mysterious H in a new job for a cash truck company that has recently been hit by a deadly heist and seems destined to be targeted once more by a group of elite robbers looking to make a quick buck.

With some bleak but atmospheric cinematography from Alan Stewart, some moody and effective scoring from composer Christopher Benstead and some grizzled performances from co-stars Holt McCallany, Jeffrey Donovan, Scott Eastwood and for what feels like the first appearance in eons from Josh Hartnett, Wrath of Man is a solid all round package that benefits from Ritchie's experience hands as he delivers a non-linear examination of what lead H down this new employment path and who exactly is behind a string of well-oiled robberies taking place across Los Angeles.

There's certainly nothing new or unique about Wrath of Man's central plot or the moments that litter its runtime, in many ways this the definition of a vengeance/crime thriller rulebook in action but there's a sheen and professionalism on display throughout the film and with Statham having an absolute blast (figuratively and at times literally) being back with one of his longest serving collaborators and with some genuinely great set-pieces that ramp up to a pulse-pounding finale, Wrath of Man may not be top-shelf Ritchie, but its top-class crime thriller fare that will please all genre diehards.

Final Say -

Refrained Ritchie with just enough pizazz and flair to make you remember whose behind the camera, Wrath of Man is a throwback crime thriller with a killer lead character and some great set-ups, making this a consistently fun and impressively filmed watch without ever doing anything of a true noteworthy nature.

3 1/2 burritos out of 5.

It's always worth every penny whenever this duo come up with something! The plot is not so strong, yet good enough to keep you in it and entertain for 2 hours!

Guy Ritchie never frustrates, NEITHER does Statham.

In fact, Statham was more than perfect for this role! Others were up to the mark!

Synopsis: Mysterious and wild-eyed, a new security guard for a cash truck surprises his co-workers when he unleashes precision skills during a heist. The crew is left wondering who he is and where he came from. Soon, the marksman's ultimate motive becomes clear as he takes dramatic and irrevocable steps to settle a score.

Good movie. Some reviews say the story is predictable but I disagree.

elodiehuynh 29 April 2021

Always the cool tough guy that noone can beat.

Full of suspense, gripping the entire time, intense, two stories in parallel that come together, somewhat predictable betrayals and twist, felt a bit dark at times, satisfying ending, not a huge amount of action but a solid storyline that keeps you on edge.

Watch it on the big screen with a good sound system for greater intensity.

If you're expecting a beautifully woven complex story with hidden twists you don't see coming, like the really good Guy Ritchie movies, you will be disappointed.

As far as a shot 'em up revenge movie, it's ok.

Didn't feel like Jason Statham got to shine as the amazing action man you know he is.

It didn't suck but it certainly wasn't The Gentleman.

Not one of Guy Ritchie's best films either, and the timelines created more convolution than intrigue. But if you're a Statham fan, and love action, revenge, bloodshed and carnage - like me, then you need to watch this. It's an 8/10 from me.

I saw the movie yesterday , it's enjoyable tbh . The action sequences and soundtracks are good , but the plot ?????? Revenge story which we've seen million times before with a heist subplot throw in it . And the main problem is that the movie doesn't know what it wants . A crime comedy ???? Well this movie was devoided of the Ritchie's style ( the jokes and gags that are his trademark ) . Maybe some dialogues meant to have some comic appeal but the delivery was flat .Or a serious drama ???? Well if you saw Micheal Mann's "Heat" than you don't have to see this .

Well . The movie was enjoyable , if you are looking for some escapism you will enjoy this movie , but if you looking for something like Snatch, Lock Stock and the Gentlemen you will be disappointed like me .

Loved every second of this movie. Guy Ritchie is one hell of a director and Jason Statham is an amazing actor. I also especially loved Scott Eastwood in this one - great acting!

I feel a a bit ambivalent about this film. The plot is revenge, although it was muddled by unexplained events and a back-and forth timeline. I would have been fine seeing this on a small screen.

Jason Statham was okay for the part, a man with a mystery agenda at first. However, there was no emotion shown, even though there was opportunity. He held the same facial expression all the way through.

Hollywood scriptwriters, please listen. 20 f words in the first two minutes is overdone. Learn how to write dialogue.
