Brief Synopsis – An ordinary man tries to stop a brutal attack and inadvertently gets the Russian Mob on his case
My Take on it – Such a surprisingly fun film.
I came across this movie by accident and knew nothing about it, yet decided to see what it was all about.
The concept is one that seems familiar, yet the way that the story moves along makes it still seem so fresh and innovative.
Bob Odenkirk is superb in the title role and helps make this character come to life in such a believable and realistic way.
The supporting cast is also great, but the stand out among them is Christopher Lloyd who plays a character so different from the kinds we expect from him and he succeeds in making it so enjoyable to watch him as things move along.
The story is fast paced and slick and allows things to stay at a very engaging pace from start to finish.
The action scenes are choreographed really well and that helps keep things quite fun and enjoyable throughout.
Love the way that they are able to give us some great surprises along the way that change the direction of things over and over.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Based on an idea by Bob Odenkirk, who dealt with a home invasion himself by trapping the trespassers in the basement. He was frustrated with how the authorities dealt with the situation and had thought about how he would take the matter into his own hands if he “was a badass.” (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
