Movie Review: WRATH OF MAN

Wrath of Man hits theaters tomorrow (Friday, May 7), and let me just say—WOW what a thriller. I was on the edge of my seat the entire movie. If you’re looking for something to do tomorrow, I can’t recommend heading to the theater to see Wrath of Man enough.

What I thought about Wrath of Man

Wrath of Man is a Guy Ritchie film, and if you know his work you know that you’ll start in present day, fast forward a few weeks, go back a few years and sometimes completely lose track of where in time you actually are. Staying true to his roots, that is exactly what Guy Ritchie did with this film. You’re sent forward and backwards to get perspective on how the situation happened for others.

Wrath of Man follows a mysterious new cash truck security guard (Jason Statham) who barely passed his test to become cash truck security guard, but ended up surprising his coworkers during a heist when he unleashed some wicked precision skills. Soon, you learn what his motive is, and that is when you’re hooked. You want to know what’s going to happen, what’s going through his mind and how everything will end.

When I tell you I was on the edge of my seat, I was literally on the edge of my seat. Wrath of Man had no point in the movie that bored me, each scene provided more information into the backstory and things that were going to happen.

As someone who is all about the Hallmark Channel and RomComs, and usually doesn’t get excited for action packed movies I was enthralled with Wrath of Man.

There is A LOT of profanity, the F bomb is dropped a minimum of 20 times. And some pretty gruesome bloody scenes (including faces).

I am an Eastwood fan, and I was excited to see that Scott Eastwood (Clint Eastwood’s son) was in Wrath of Man as well—ladies they introduce him by just showing his eyes—get ready to swoon!
