This movie can be best described as a more down to earth John Wick.
    That may be a weird thing to say considering what the John Wick films are like, so another way to describe it is more “realistic”. You almost connect with the main character Hutch (played by Bob Odenkirk), a simple family man trying to earn a living in his mundane life, but he isn’t all that he seems. Hiding a secret past that has taught him a deadly set of skills, he is forced to protect his family. The film is serious for the most part, especially at the start and its almost very misleading. But it contains just the perfect amount of humor that fits perfectly for this film, it’s hard to explain that it’s serious and very much not at the same time.

    The extreme violence is pretty confronting, I mean it’s in your face violence which made me squirm at times – but if you’re up for it then this movie will suit you fine. I really enjoyed that this movie felt fresh to me. Even though there are a million revenge movies out there, this one just felt right, felt special. Again for some reason in the last year or so good movies just seem to fly under the radar. This one is for the older audience without a doubt. Its gruesome and violent but at the same time holds a decent story together that you want to follow. If you’re tired of John Wick then go see this.
