This is a movie that I only recently caught onto, and I’m not sure why it took me so long. With the leading combination of Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, I’d think this would be on my radar for a while. I think this type of role is one that Washington really thrives in, and the same goes for Reynolds, although not to the same caliber. The recent trailers that have come out make it seem like it could be a pretty entertaining movie. The rest of the cast solidifies that thought as well.
With newcomers directing and writing, however, I’m a little hesitant to get too excited for this movie. Such a cast could probably carry a poorly written and directed movie, but if the writing and directing can hold their own, than this will probably end up being a pretty decent movie.
