Studio: Universal
Release Date: December 7, 2021
Rating: R
Film: 3/5
 
Plot
Screaming through the Nevada desert in a bullet-ridden Crown Vic, wily con artist Teddy Murretto (Frank Grillo) hatches a desperate plan to hide out from lethal hitman Bob Viddick (Gerard Butler). He sucker-punches rookie officer Valeria Young (Alexis Louder) to get himself arrested and locked up in a small-town police station. But jail can’t protect Murretto for long. Viddick schemes his own way into detention, biding his time in a nearby cell until he can complete his mission. When the arrival of a competing assassin ignites all-out mayhem, mounting threats force Viddick to get creative if he wants to finish the job and escape the explosive situation.
 
My Thoughts
My wife had zero interest in watching this film, so I got up early on a Sunday morning to give it a spin. While it’s not a great film, it is enjoyable for those who like action movies along with some campy dialog and plenty of gunshots. The story is very far-fetched, but that’s OK given the genre, and there are some moments of levity that add a surprising element to the film.
 
The A/V quality is a solid effort from Universal. The digitally-shot film delivers a clean picture that’s teeming with detail, especially in facial close-ups. The DTS-HD MA 5.1 track is mostly great, although a bit inconsistent. The first half of the film is rather tame but once the action kicks in the LFE will rip the plaster off of the walls. In fact, it’s some of the best LFE I’ve heard on a new movie in a while.
 
      
Video 4.5/5 (AVC)
 
 Audio 4.5/5 (DTS-HD MA 5.1)

 
Special Features:
 
  • Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy
 

 
 
Conclusion
Put this one in the camp of mindless action, which isn’t a bad thing. Butler has reached a stage in his career where he doesn’t seem to be reaching for parts and will join any action flick that will deliver a paycheck, similar to Liam Neeson. I won’t fault the guy for making money, but it’s hard to believe this is the same guy who starred in Phantom of the Opera! If you’re a basshead, then you’ll definitely want to see this film because the LFE level is pure reference in the second half of the film.

I contemplated a 3.5 grade for the film. My expectations were pretty low, so I wasn't sure if that's why I liked it as much as I did. Seeing those RT scores makes me question my decision.

If it's a fun tongue in cheek action film, I'm all in. I'll let you know what I think after I watch it. Although I have a ton of things going on for the next 2 weeks and it's holiday / Xmas movie season!
