Sucks being a woman in Hollywood. I love Kendrick, but they made her quite annoying in this film. In addition, her female co-stars have no independent life of their own, so all they do is focus on Kendrick. All of the guys have backstories and character development. It's funny when it's not annoying, and RZA does a great job.
Scripter Max Landis gives an irreverent take on the hitman comedy that actually adds some novelty to the generic setup. The success falls on the casting and both leads are a lot of fun here. Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick have a good chemistry as two nuts drawn to one another despite Sam being a conflicted hitman. Tim Roth offers some good support here as well. One could do worse than hang with these two.
It's not a phenomenal film, it won't amaze anyone, but Sam Rockwell is at his Sam Rockwelliest, and Anna Kendrick is at her Anna Kendrickiest, and it's just nice to know that a film with those two things exists.
Better than American Ultra, thanks to Anna Kendrick and the always reliable Sam Rockwell. But with Victor Frankenstein, American Ultra and now Mr. Right, Max Landis' star is rapidly fading - Chronicle was only four years ago, but it might as well be a million years ago...
Carino, simpatico, senza pretese e riesce bene nell'obiettivo di divertire, una dimostrazione del fatto che il cinema di intrattenimento non deve per forza deludere, guadagna una stella in più per aver fatto bene il lavoro e per il cast da non tralasciare.
When a movie can just enjoy
