PARCEL: The latest hire (Jason Statham) at a cash truck company proves to be extremely skilled at foiling thefts – but it quickly becomes clear that there is more to him than meets the eye.

SEE AGAIN: After years of working on massive Hollywood blockbusters like Sherlock Holmes, Aladdin and franchise candidates as the underrated The UNCLE man and King Arthur: Legend of the SwordGuy Ritchie has taken a step back, opting for a low budget, but still hugely ambitious series of films that are closer to the R-rated films that have made him a household name. His latest film, Gentlemen, was a worldwide hit, and now he’s back with one of his most idiosyncratic films – MAN’S WRATH.

In some ways, this looks like his mistake Revolver, although much more successful in almost all respects. He eschews his cheeky humor for a darker, almost lyrical tale with chapter breaks, complex non-linear structure, and a bespoke role for star Jason Statham, marking their first film together since then.

In Anger of man, Statham plays H, a new security guard at a cash truck company with a collection of characters so hyper-macho that they all use nicknames like “Bullet,” “Hollow Bob,” and the most hilarious “Boy Sweat.” “. The company he works for is regularly hit, and in one of these attacks, H methodically sends the assailants, saving his colleagues and impressing the president of the cash truck company, played by CatastropheIt’s Rob Delany. At this point, the flashbacks prove that H is far from what it seems, with the trailers revealing he’s on a mission of revenge after a job gone wrong took his son’s life.

Statham is playing typing here, with H completely invincible. He never loses a fight and sends his opponents so methodically that he almost looks like Steven Seagal until Ritchie starts peeling the character’s layers like an onion. The film is loaded with wall-to-wall hyper machismo, but in some ways it almost feels like a satire with Eddie Marsan as the worried supervisor of the cash truck company, the only one wondering if Statham is more of a psychopath. than a superhero. Anger of man is based on a French film titled The Conveyor or rather Box truck. It’s more of a set than you might think, rather than a direct action vehicle for Statham. At one point, the film returns to portray a gang of thieves who are veterans of the war, led by the character of Jeffrey Donovan. Former soldiers, they have all struggled with menial jobs. They decide to use their skills to reduce scores, which gives them a Heat vibe sometimes, although thematically it is probably closer to Thieves’ hideout – although better. Scott Eastwood is the hothead of the crew, a solid change of pace for an actor often considered a pretty boy.

The rest of Statham’s cash truck team have plenty to chew on as well, with Holt McCallaney as Bullet the affable old pro, while Josh Hartnett in an impressive turn is the badass of the team that turns out to be anything but once. the shit goes down. Raised by wolves escape Niamh Algar is the only female member of the team, who, like the guys, adopts a hyper-macho character to fit in. It all turns into a huge third act action sequence which is possibly Ritchie’s best pure action action movie yet. There is even a satirical addiction with all the cashier workers suddenly overwhelmed by this machismo which results in a whole bloodbath which is impressive to see.

All that aside, Anger of man is an impressive work by Ritchie that, likely, will elicit a mixed reaction, as some will dismiss him as a quick actor. Thematically, I think there is more going on than you think, and I’m curious how Ritchie is going to outdo himself with his next team Statham, Five eyes. While that’s a long touch at two hours, Ritchie makes the most of the extended runtime, fleshing out the whole thing. Action fans will have to wait a bit for the hardcore carnage to kick in, but the third act is well worth it.
