When you come to a movie that calls itself an action flick, you don’t expect to be lectured on feminism and toxic masculinity.
Well, after starting off well enough that’s precisely where Interceptor takes you. Its got plot holes galore but its entertaining enough at first, until it starts finger wagging.
Get the message entertainment industry, I don’t come to a film to be lectured, I want to be entertained. Simple as that.
The premise, as an elevator pitch, might have worked.
With some research, a good script, and some solid acting and direction, this might have been a good, entertaining action flick. But it isn’t.
No-one bothered to do a tiny bit of research to make the scenario, the tech, the military babble or insignias at least somewhat OK-ish. The CGI is a the level YT kids do these days, and the story is threadbare recycled fare. Plus, as some complained, too much “woke BS” – I intended to go along with some plot elements at first, but it’s so coarsely piled on, it becomes unbearable.
And don’t get me started on the “acting”.
As audience, we are making a deal with the moviemakers. We provide some suspension of disbelief, accept some bits that aren’t realistic, and they put in some effort to accommodate us in this regard.
Unless they are lazy as in this case. Then it becomes insulting how little they think of us.
Action stars don’t need to have real acting chops; if they do, it is a very welcome addition, and can mean actual stardom. But the least we can expect is Expendables-level effort.
There is still a niche for old-fashioned save-the-world-action flicks, I’m sure of that. But stuff like this is just a crappy waste of viewer’s time.
2 of 10, 1 of which for the director as an encouragement that your first failure doesn’t have to mean an entirely failed career. Try again!
Everybody else: please don’t do another thing like this, even if it is a favour for your wife.
Cheesy harmless fun!
This Australian production harks back to the B-movie days with all the necessary elements – silly improbable story, bad acting, poor American accents and some questionable special effects.
But you know what? This was fun to watch, more so than some big budget action movies. It knows what it is and doesn’t try to hide it in any way. The fact that Chris Hemsworth hams it up alongside his wife is testament to that.
The fight scenes are fairly decent and there’s some decent depictions of violence as well.
If you go in knowing what you’re in for, you may just find yourself enjoying this!
Netflix in a shell.
Poor acting. #metoo stereotypes. Not credible. The the story is so incredible. If I had to pay for a movie ticket to see it, I’d be a little pissed off afterwards.
