Oh goodness, I have so much to say about this movie. This movie is just insane. Robotic superhuman played by Idris Elba? Check. Over-the-top action? Check. Buff guys? Check. This is the ultimate popcorn flick. Let’s just get right into this review.
Listen, if you’re looking for some high class movie with an actual plot, do not watch this movie. If you want to see The Rock deliver a one liner and proceed to beat up a bunch of bad guys, then please watch this movie as soon as possible.
Speaking of beating up bad guys, the action here is insane. Things that happen during the action scenes are so over the top it’s funny.
The acting here is pretty good. It’s not incredible, but does the job.
An issue I did have is that Idris Elba is one of those “Hey, look at me, I’m a bad guy!” villians. These villians are uninteresting and just not compelling. If you’ve seen “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, this is a similar situation. Ultron is a very uncompelling villian just like the one in this movie.
That’s all I have to say about this. It’s solid and a very fun watch overall.
Overall score: 8/10
