I was hoping to catch this in the cinema but it didn’t work out. No matter. I’ve finally been able to watch it now and was certainly not disappointed.
This is a great film! It’s full of action right the way through. Never a dull moment with plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you on your toes and glued to the screen.
Some great performances from a brilliant cast are on display here. James McAvoy as always never disappoints. Charlize Theron is a strong lead, playing an engaging character. It’s all go.
The colours are very striking. Blue and red being the most prominent and used to excellent and effective storytelling.
The music is full of 80s tunes give it a fun tone amidst all the heavy violence. A great selection to enjoy.
This film has received very mixed responses. I don’t know how much it deserves that. I think it’s a very enjoyable film, I don’t see what problems anyone could have had with it. Sit back and enjoy the show!
