Not Pena’s best, nor will it be on anyone’s top 10, but still much better than all the negative reviews.
It was pretty awful. The female lead couldnt act to save her life and the plot flowed together so poorly you couldnt really understand what was happening until the credits rolled.
The story is stretched paper thin, the dialogue is the furthest thing from authentic, the overuse of character narration (in the form of radio transmissions) sounds like it was created in a basement edit suite. Just plain horrible.
Not usually a fan of Sean Penn, but found his performance as well as the storyline entertaining,
you know, despite the implausibility of it all, I found it enjoyable and strangely compelling. Penn is a great actor with an intensity that can lift anything. The comparisons with those awful but enjoyable Liam Neeson films IS obvious. By comparison, this takes itself more seriously and tries to mean more. It probably fails in that, but Penn is much more real as a character, and the political backdrop tries with a modicum of success to give us something to care about.
Nah...Penn doesnt make the transition to mature action star in my books. The film is dull too and its set prices are nothing special
Nothing to write home about. A Jack Reacheri-sh fellow who can beat people up in close hand-to-hand combat and fight his way out of situations. Tries to have a politically correct plot about multi-nationals exploiting developing countries. I watched it all the way through but it's all stuff we've seen before.
With weak characters, a muddled plot, and a sluggish pace, there isnt much to say about this movie. Everything they show tries to convey social commentary on blood minerals, but isnt reinforced strongly enough in my opinion. Pierre Morel simply doesnt give it the same flair he gave Taken. With a soundtrack by Marco Beltrami that does its job, an appropriate tone, and reasonably salty language, The Gunman may be better left forgotten. Thats really all I gotta say, except that its best for background noise.
Some good action but not an exceptional movie in any way.
Entertaining enough, but felt like a poor attempt to emulate the action of Taken.
