After a money truck was robbed, where there were also casualties, H decides to join the team. Soon you notice that he has his own plans and reason to find out who exactly is responsible for that robbery. In addition, he’s not as he seems to be, and I was also surprised to learn who he truly was.
I can actually not tell more about the plot as they would be all spoilers. All I can tell is that it’s definitely a Guy Ritchie movie. The trailer can be deceiving to some people who are unfamiliar with his directing style. When I saw the trailer, I got John Wick vibes. However, it’s totally different. If you’re hoping for a full-action-packed movie, you might be disappointed.
A Guy Ritchie/ Jason Statham movie
As every Guy Ritchie film, Wrath of Man follows multiple backstories that lead up to one connected storyline. At first, it doesn’t feel that way as you follow H’s story, but then you get everything explained. With every scene, it becomes more and more apparent where this is going. Contrary to The Gentlemen, this film is way darker as there is not much space for humor. Well, that’s not a bad thing, but it’s something worth pointing out.
Jason Statham is excellent in his role, as we always expect it. He’s definitely a calm but very badass man with many skills in this film. However, his backstory surprised me, but in some way, it didn’t add much to his story. I liked the idea of it, but it could have been perfectly done without it.
Wrath of Man is two hours long, but it actually feels very long. That’s probably due to the multiple backstories we get to see. I would have preferred to see a more focused one on H’s story without the other storylines.
Wrath of Man was different as I expected. Somehow I should have expected it since Guy Ritchie directs it. Jason Statham is still Statham, as we know him in a dark tone. It’s not my favorite Guy Ritchie movie, but it’s pretty decent.
