Film Synopsis: Wrath of Man. The plot follows H (played by Jason Statham), a cold and very mysterious character working @ a cash truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angels each week! What could go wrong with this, right…..
Impeccable action! I must say that first and foremost. I rated the movie a “B” overall because the beginning was slow and I was expecting the movie to suck like the last movie I saw from this Director which was The Gentleman, but it DID NOT! It picked up momentum pretty fast. This was truly the wrath of man in this movie. Wrath of Man is a beast! Wrath of Man is a gruesome killer! Wrath of Man is just…WOW!
Most people might say that the film is a tad bit disturbing, violent, and above all else convoluted by it going back and fourth through various time loops, but this is what I have to say about the time loops about this film – THEY MADE SENSE AND I COULD FOLLOW ALONG WITH THEM. I can’t say that about most films because they tend to drag you around from the past back to the present and then to the future and then back and fourth where you cannot even tell the damn difference where you are at or where you are even going!
I CANNOT say that about so many other films that go back and fourth with time loops where I cannot understand a thing! Guy Ritchie really did a very good job at explaining and displaying what happened with all of the characters and why H behaved the way that he did, and why all events happened that led H to do what he did; and the way that everything was revealed all fell into place.
But, the only questions that were left unanswered to me was: HOW did “the boss” become the boss & what was the business that they were running? Furthermore, if I were to give the overall message of the film a grade – it would be an “A++++” as far as I could go and I MUST expound on that. Be careful not to face the wrath of man in here! I wish that question had gotten revelaed. If it was shown in the film I totally missed it and it flew right on past me and I saw the film THREE times! Yes, I said three! Three, indeed!
The underlying message of the movie was all, to me about greed and how, IF someone is weak, can let money change you and the type of person you are. The characters in the film robbed cash trucks and you could see the money hungry greedy looks in their eyes and how much they wanted their cut of the money after the trucks were robbed; they killed, shot, and did whatever they had to to get more money, even if it meant killing people in their own bad crew. How sick is that?
Having your own fellow bank robbers killed – killing them yourself because you are that money thirsty? Just seeing that made me sick to my stomach, and to know that there are people like that in the world today who will take shortcuts to get cash – fast cash; and that way! For someone to be this money hungry is just pathetic! I don’t know who or what would possess someone to kiss someone in your own crew for cash. Even though you should be having a crew in the first place not robbing a back or cash trucks to begin with.
The movie is more than fast-paced action robbing – it’s about how you choose to protect yourself, what you hold precious and dear to you, and how you want to be looked at and perceived by others…..I loved Wrath of Man!
