Clint Says: See this in theaters when you can
Sometimes we all need something in our life that is just fun. Something that doesn't mean anything, something that isn't trying to be something else, something that lets you check your brain at the door and just absorb the entertainment.
Nobody does just that.
Bob Odenkirk is fabulous in his role as a former hired gun turned family man. You can see him trying so hard to be the perfect, normal husband and father, but the bad boy side of him is itching to come out and play. And when that part of him finally gets its chance, it is game on.
Then, you add in a riotously funny performance by Christopher Lloyd and a bunch of overacting Russian mafia types, and you have a recipe for one heck of a wild melee.
Even though this film is a lot of fun, it is not for everyone. It is filled with brutality and violence. It's like a cross between John Wick and a UFC fight.
It isn't the kind of movie that will move you emotionally or intellectually, but it will give you a chance to root for the good guy and watch the bad guys get all that is coming to them. To that end this is a fun and satisfying flick.
