A promising cast and trailer turns into a big disappointment
A very long and bland action movie that goes over its time limit. As excited as I was to see this from the fast paced and well edited trailer, I left the theater disappointed and expecting more.
Good: Charlize Theron and James McAvoy were great in this film and worked well with the role given. The movie has a vibrant and appealing rock star style with bright neon colors.
Bad: The action sequences lacked innovative and new stunts and were not entertaining at all except a one-shot staircase scene. The story and plot of the movie were not interesting or intriguing. Also the movie seemed to jump all over the place going from one setting to the next. Also the addition of Sofia Boutella was not used effectively. A lack of comedic moments.
Overall: This movie was a let down and a movie that I prefer more is John Wick which understands what it is and entertains the audience. As great as the cast was, the plot and action sequences lacked creativity and stylistic moments.
