Entertaining but not flawless
30 November 2019 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

For once I have to agree with most of the reviews on here, The Corrupted isn't a bad movie but it isn't a movie I would watch again. Based on true events, that's how it starts, and for that alone I already have my doubts as I'm pretty sure most of the things didn't happen for real. But that aside it's a movie with plenty of action, enough to never get bored. The acting was also good, even though I wouldn't have taken Timothy Spall as the crime boss. He's a good actor but let's be honest he wouldn't scare my grandmother if he tried. The story is entertaining but far from flawless, I wouldn't know anybody that would leave a bag with millions of cash. It's one of those small details that makes The Corrupted not a great movie.
