This is the type of hammy, bad, mindless, unoriginal action flick that I am actually able to somewhat enjoy.
_Final rating:★★★ – I personally recommend you give it a go._
**Quick money always ends in a big trouble!**
It’s one of those films with aimless narration. Indeed, it has a nice cast and characters with the basic storyline, but that did not expand and explored well as it should have been. At least the pace of the narration looked fine. Some characters looked unnecessary, and so a couple of scenes. If these all were managed, then still it could have been a decent film. Because since it is an action- adventure, they did not generate those crucial parts like the stunts and dialogues related to the gangster thing to turn it a better film in its kind.
The two veteran actors coming together for the first time added more curiosity than flavour we are looking for. They did okay and so the rest of the cast. Ideal runtime, a few stuffs were in the favour of the film, but those were not enough for the overall success. If the same film was made from the non-English world like perhaps Germany, which was one of the producers of the film would have done better than this existing one which is very familiar with this language.
People would watch it only for Hopkins and Kingley and so did am I. But they might end in disappointment, or that could be the reason to rate it fairly better. Whatever, this is an okay film, which is barely entertaining and of all, not a boring film. So trying it for one is okay, but I think not worth if you have got plenty of options over this one.
Better than I had hoped
I went into this film with an open mind. I wasn’t expecting much in the way of OTT action sequences or sex and violence that is the staple for most blockbuster-esque action films with it being a PG-13. That said it did deliver on the action sequences. Some well shot and exciting car chases and gun battles which kept you watching even if the plot (which has some twists) was rather predictable at times. Essentially though it is a love story although that is glossed over a bit too much for me. Would have preferred a 15 rating and a bit more from the two leads. I disagree with the other reviewer who thought Anthony Hopkins didn’t play the villain believably enough. I thought he nailed it. What was a bit unbelievable was the lack of police support during most of the gun battles. Are the German police really so useless? I had an overall sense that a bit of comedy was trying to be injected into the dialogue (especially the scenes with Hopkins and Kingsley)it did make me smile but I fear that may not have been the intention after all. Overall an enjoyable film that I am glad I saw. Could have been made better – yes, could have had more depth – yes. Recommended – yes.
A Dummy gets chased around movie
In every movie there is an expectation to suspend disbelief..to an extent. This one asks you to shut off any relations you have with common sense or cognitive thought. Anthony Hopkins (he is fab, but over the top) character…a real baddie, but ultra powerful, stand up business man, famous, squeaky clean…is suddenly popping people and brandishing a gun in a gas station..in Germany…Germany!…where there is probably a camera or two. Like his henchman (who we assume is highly trained & paid) thinks it is a genius idea to run around a Subway station brandishing a gun…and shooting it in the air..in….wait for it..Germany……AGAIN there is probably a few cameras & cops around. Then there is the empty eyed hero…I counted 3 times in the film where he gets lucky flailing around and grabbing something that saves him. I was bored and watched it, felt compelled to write this….did the Producers assume people have gotten really stupid? they had a budget and two amazing actors. They decided to make a film about a dummy getting chased by villains who make stupid mistakes. Instead of saying “ok, we got the guy from Sexy Beast…let’s shoot for that level”
