Can’t wait for this
It's out. Gonna watch tonight.
Movie was pretty dope...
First half of the movie was pretty intense but starts to fall off during the second part...
But god damn these cacs were greedy as fukk
Would have been an 8 if they all died at the end.
But yo, that final chase went from the middle of the night to bright daylight in about 5 minutes of action
Felt incomplete and fell off quick the second half. Man these Netflix originals continue to disappoint. It’s like the run out of money or just stop caring the second half of movies and shows.
Greed pretty much did them in though and I saw it coming a mile away.
Netflix or the Triple Frontier guys?
Not too bad ...second half it did fall off but you'll be invested enough to see it through....
I was speaking about the Netflix movies in general but yes it can be applied specifically to this one as well.
Was it really necessary to cgi shorty jumping through the rubble during the first chase?
Netflix always had the budgets and the look, but the movies always seem to lack a certain soul or heart, not to mention this having the most cliched and overdone device, with the well worn put upon American white man hero storyline extra emphasized. I've only watched the trailer, but I can tell I doubt I'll watch this,
Cliched drug lord in luxury mansion, check
Grizzled group of special forces on one last mission, check
Lush jungle settings and a betrayal or two, check
There are cases of ex commandos working for criminals and worldwide executions, but this goes so far over the top, it turns cartoonish. I feel the same way about Narcos. It looks good, but is just empty of any real insight or nuance about the worlds it is interested in.
This shyt was garbage. Did they run out of money towards the end
Ben Affleck slept through this. The role was just a check
watched this last nite...great flick...ppl truly underestimate greed until they actually are in a position to be around/control life changing amounts of $$$ ...shyt is really infectious
