“Wrath of Man” (The Movie) – A Review
Filled with an intense umbrage, Hills finds his act in solid thrills that could almost be felt especially, in the last scenes of the movie. These thrills, being a result of the built up emotions over the months, causing an outrage.
The new security guard for a Cash Truck couldn’t have been just “another” recruit, like we were made to believe in the first scenes. Even colleagues, through their constant experience with H, had their time, trying to demystify his person. In the beginning, he didn’t seem to get any of the tests right but subsequently, was a “beast” on the field. For the viewers, flashbacks did the magic in bringing the acts together and all of a sudden, everything surrounding the mystery of “Patrick Hills” began to make so much sense. But for them at Fortico, it was an uneasy journey of many “unfoldings”.
Quite commendable is the firm character in Jason Statham, known as H in the movie. A father, passionate to find the murderer of his son, who would maneuver protocols, just to unravel the mystery behind his son’s death. For a straightforward character, there was absolutely no need for the roundabout structures that is evident in the movie.
Spoiler Alert ⚠️
Wrath of Man’s story line is quite cliché. Guy Ritchie, however, in order to emphasize the intensity of revenge, stylishly avoids the entrance of comics in the movie. Also, a twist considered quite weirdly circimstanced, is the antagonistic participation of Bullet, (Hill’s Supervisor) in the last heist of the movie. Who could have ever thought of that?
- *. *. *. *. *.
Despite the shopworn background story which would be considered a spoiler, Wrath of Man is definitely Cinema worthy. All scenes bring to reality, the “possible” intensity of a father’s passion in going down mystery lane just to give “well deserved” answers to his “quests”. Crime, violence, betrayal, anonymity, gangsterism all join forces to bring a thrilling experience to the senses. Again, all thanks to Guy Ritchie.
