Wrath of Man stars Jason Statham as Patrick Hargreaves, a mysterious bullion van escort, out to avenge the loss of a loved one with his brutish style of justice.
What is funny about Wrath of Man is that the plot is easy to follow and that’s because the fulcrum of the film is not the plot but rather all about Jason Statham kicking butt. He was such a no-nonsense bad ass, kicking ass and taking names. Although many of us could see the plot twist at the end, the fun is the process of getting there.
I must however point out that the film isn’t shot in the classical Guy Ritchie style like in Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels and the likes, but he left his signature in the nonlinear way the story is told.
My favorite part of Wrath of Man is when Statham told someone, he wanted his liver, spleen, lungs and heart. I was like “baba, are you into rituals ni?”
