Could have been so much more
24 February 2017 | by Joel PerssonSee all my reviews

I was very excited for this film from the moment i saw the trailer. The cast and the story all seemed like it would turn out great. The cast did very well Gary Oldman, Jai Courtney, Kate Mara, Cliffton Collins Jr, the kid and especially Shia as always. I got invested in the protagonist as the story unravels from two ends at the same time, it jumps between present and backstory explaining Shias behavior little by little as the movie goes and the ending had me pleasantly surprised since it came very unsuspecting. (it may have saved the film for me) Man Down does however fall short on poor production design and cheap CGI, mostly the apocalyptic themed scenes. Overall it is a good movie, but it could have been better.

+ Great cast - Cheap production
