Shift Happens. Carnahan has done it again.
8 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wow. Just wow. This movie didn't surprise me with its' quality due to the fact that I am a big Joe Carnahan fan. His work over the years has always impressed me. Even recently I knew he still had it with the amazing TV show The Blacklist. His style of blending humour and drama works really well and it comes into play spectacularly here.

The narration of Patrick Wilson's character is both humorous and amazing to listen to. It gives extra layers to this character and makes him all the more enjoyable as the lead. His whacky adventure makes this film whole and truly a fun and entertaining movie. There are many different movies which have a similar kind of narrative structure to this but very few have Carnahan's skilled execution and delivery. Every moment just hits the right note from start to finish. There are a couple of truly amazing cameos in the film which are both perfect and hilarious.

My only nag with the film I guess is that it was somewhat predictable. But, you don't see the film for this really; so it didn't matter a whole lot. It coasted by very well with its' witty script, great soundtrack and stellar acting. Carnahan has served up another home run. A must see for fans of his work. Go in with an open mind if this is your first. Either way, you shall not be disappointed.
