Audience Reviews for Boss Level

  • Mar 18, 2021
    Boss Level showcases why Joe Carnahan should be making more films. This is one of the better original films to be released and it's a shame it was released without more recognition. This will need a word of mouth style release to ensure it is seen by the masses but with the release structure this might be hard. The action is relentless and plays with the same story formula of Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow. This film isn't a carbon copy of those films and that's down to the Joe Carnahan story beats and his refreshing mix of characters. The film twists and turns before landing at a satisfying conclusion. Strong cast of character actors and some genuine dark humour laughs ensure this will find a place with cult status at some point in the future. 11/03/2021

    It's a time loop action movie where Frank Grillo (The Purge: Anarchy) plays a special forces agent going through one long, hellish, bullet-heavy day of violence on repeat. As with other time loop movies, the joy is watching the many different iterations and building from previous excursions and finding the fun detours to discover with the many "what if" scenarios at play. Boss Level is simply fun and disposable entertainment. We watch Grillo strut through the day with amazing clairvoyance and annoyance as he does over and over again, with a team of flashy Smokin' Aces-esque super assassins chasing him down through the day to score the big hit. The story is rather generic with Grillo learning to take responsibility for being a father, with a generic villain played by Mel Gibson and a generic damsel-in-distress ex-wife played by Naomi Watts. The appeal is Grillo and his gruff charm as well as the darkly comic violence and the creative ingenuity of Grillo dying over and over and then persevering. The action, while definitely scaled down through its lower budget, is filled with fast cars, explosions, gun fights, and pulpy over-the-top deaths to really make the movie feel like perhaps the best video game adaptation even if it was never a video game. The biggest drawback is that this movie is packed, wall-to-wall, with excessive and grating voice over where Grillo's character will explain EVERYTHING on screen and I just wanted him to shut up. It's not like his constant verbal commentary is really adding anything; he's not exactly a character with a strong personality. I am not kidding when I say that 90 percent of this voice over could be eliminated entirely. Imagine being stuck beside an annoying and ceaselessly chatty neighbor in a theater and having that intrusion drown out the experience of the movie, and that's how prevalent and irritable the constant voice over can be. Seriously, there's more voice over than dialogue here. Otherwise, Boss Level is a suitably stylish, slick, and action-packed B movie with enough flair and imagination to fill up 90 minutes of entertainment. Three time loop movies in under one year makes me wonder what genre will next be explored. Get ready for the medical drama time loop, the courtroom thriller time loop, and maybe even the disaster movie time loop. Whatever they may be, they guarantee at least a watch from me.
