'Mr. Right' is an absurd Action-Comedy, but its undeniably Great Fun too! Its fast, witty & violent, but it makes for a good watch, thanks to its mostly Crisp Writing & Strong Performances.
'Mr. Right' Synopsis: A girl falls for the "perfect" guy, who happens to have a very fatal flaw: he's a hit-man on the run from the crime cartels who employ him.
'Mr. Right' induces romance, comedy & some pulsing action in those 92-minutes. Max Landis's Screenplay is crisp & moves on a fast-pace, wasting no time in any unwanted subplots or prolonged sequences. Its perpetually absurd & its fun to see its violent protagonists take on love & the bad-guy in the goings-on. Paco Cabezas's Direction is good. Cinematography & Editing are decent. Action-Sequences are sharply executed.
Performance-Wise: Sam Rockwell & Anna Kendrick are in Tremendous form. Rockwell doesn't miss a beat as the hit-man with a soft heart, while Kendrick is a hoot as the heartbroken & yet love-driven young blood. Kendrick steals the show, reassuring her remarkable talent. Tim Roth is effective, as always. RZA is alright. Others lend able support
On the whole, 'Mr. Right' gets it Right. Recommended!
