Pointless. . .

I had high expectations for this movie. I had heard good things about it, and Chris Hemsworth usually is a great actor...but this was a waste of time. The story is so unrealistic but predictable at the same time. All the supporting characters are just plain annoying. It feels like it goes on way too long, even though it's only a two hour movie. Chris Hemsworth's character is really the only semi-likable character. The whole mission of protecting this kid seems so pointless and doesn't even make sense most of the time. Besides that the movie generally sucks, it is filled with way too much violence and swearing. Almost like they're trying to distract you about how bad it is with all the swearing lol. So many F-Bombs that it becomes vulgar. And the violence is way too graphic for me for how shallow the movie feels. If your gonna fill a movie with swearing and violence you need to give a good reason for it (ex. the John Wick movies). This whole movie feels like you are watching someone play a bad video game...don't waste your time!!
