This movie caught me off guard. It was soooo raw and pure in its storytelling and approach its violence. Odenkirk revels in his role of a man seething just underneath his undeserved insecurities as a competent father and husband.
Once set free, the main character takes over and does just enough here. In the john wick vain? Sure, but this film has its own distinct vibe.
My wife and I were not able to see this movie in our local movie theater and am happy we were able to purchase it at a good price from BestBuy and am looking forward to watching it as often as we want.
The characters and plot line of this movie are both excellent and unexpected. I was 100% entertained by this film. Action & humor mixed to perfection. I highly recommend this film for a great evening of entertainment.
