Burning out mercenary is hired to rescue the son of a jailed crime lord.
First of two films starring Chris Hemsworth was a surprise hit for Netflix. Sure it’s an action packed thriller, but most people didn’t expect so many people to fall madly in love with it.
I’m coming late to the game and after three years of talk I final sat down and watched the film.
Having seen the film I’m kind of scratching my head as to why the film spawned a so much love and a sequel. Don’t get me wrong it has some spectacular action set pieces and mean edge we don’t normally see in films like this, but it is rather by the numbers and Hemsworth, while good, isn’t give a character to play but a coat of clichés to wear.
I liked the film, but when I was done I didn’t race to watch the sequel.
