Yall sleepin on this masterpiece

One of the best movies I ever seen. Period. Ion kno what yall talm bout how this movie is boring. This movie has one of the best soundtracks, beautifully thought out detailed story. This movie shows how one entire movie can literally revolve around a 5 minute scene in the beginning. There can be so many things happening at once, and shows how realistically complicated a situation can get. Common Sense also talks about how there were no women that were main characters in this movie, and that they were only supporting. However, I would like to add that this movie is literally about no one but (H)imself - the one man army. Lmk if you get the pun. Yeah so this movie most definitively getting a spot in my Top 10 list and there aren't even a full 10 movies in my list.

Above average action movie

Not as violent as other R rated movies. Very little sex. Should be ok for most teens.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (11 ):

A cliched remake of the 2004 French movie Cash Truck, this action-thriller manages to make skilfully planned robberies of armored vehicles seem pretty dull. This is partly because of the structure of Wrath of Man, as it takes the well-worn path of repeating its main set pieces from the point of view of several different groups, and also because genre classics such as Heat have done it so much better. Each plot point approaches with the speed and obviousness of one of the trucks the characters are often driving, so anyone looking for the humor and spark that accompanied director and Guy Ritchie's early movies will be disappointed.

Statham dutifully goes through the motions as H, his jaw only unclenching to mutter out his share of exposition-heavy dialogue and tedious chat with interchangeable supporting characters. Presumably this is done to show their no-nonsense macho approach. But instead it just renders them unbelievable relics from a bygone movie-making era. Like the robbers depicted on screen, you could be forgiven for thinking that everyone involved in this unimaginative heist flick is doing it for the money.
