Super strong cast here, and they are all good in their roles. Oscar Isaac, Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Pedro Pascal, Garrett Hedlund, and Adria Arjona. That’s quite the casting.
One of the main strengths of this movie is how these five ex-special forces unit, interact with each other. They have good chemistry together, so that’s always a good thing.
As a heist film, I thought the movie offered some good ideas for it’s plot progression, and for the themes it wanted to showcase.
The opening sequences, and the heist itself was entertaining enough to watch.
What happens after the heist is arguably the most interesting, suspenseful, and dramatic thing about this movie.
People going into this thinking it’s going to be an action-fest will be disappointed.
It’s a slow burn the majority of the way until the end, and some people are not going to dig that.
Although I think it was necessary thematic-wise , I’m still disappointed with some of the stupid decisions some of the characters make in this movie.
As interesting as the premise and characters can be, I don’t think the movie completely sticks the landing, for me to get fully invested with it.
It opens with a Metallica song featured, and it ends with another Metallica song too.
