Wrath of Man

Jason Statham stars in this Guy Ritchie action-thriller as a mysterious man named H, a driver for a cash truck company responsible for moving millions of dollars around the city.

Wrath of Man / Reviews

Flicks

Flicks, Daniel Rutledge

There are a lot of filmmaking tricks pulled and interestingly they’re not all used in the action sequences. Those are well done but are generally much more restrained than the frenetic madness one may be expecting—that wild, weird energy is used more in how the narrative is delivered. Don’t get me wrong, this is a generic crime tale with some truly awful dialogue, but the unorthodox way it unfolds makes it much more interesting than it deserves to be. There are some bizarre editing choices and other unusual stylistic flourishes thrown in—some work, some don’t, all kept me intrigued.

Like the H character, "Wrath of Man" walks into the room confident and secure in its abilities, professional, efficient and potentially lethal.

Wrath is also fun, after a fashion, only with the grim undercurrent of a movie more interested in generating violence than truly motivating it...

The ultimate sin of "Wrath of Man" is that it doesn't realize it's really a story about pride.

It's all pleasingly robust and cinematic, if fleeting.

Plays like a half-hearted cover version of Ritchie's best kinetic actioners...

The result keeps the character's rage on ice a bit too long and never approaches the swaggering appeal of Lock, Stock...

The mild tragedy is that Statham's growling sense of humor goes missing in the shuffle and a few decent actors are wasted...

One of Guy Ritchie's best-directed movies -- and one of his most surprising, at least in terms of style and tone.

Wrath of Man becomes less engaging the longer it goes on, partly because there’s not much novelty left in Ritchie’s cinematic tricks...
