Never push a good man too far -Tagline, The Foreigner
They said the same thing with Kidnap, and Carla was the exact mother to mess with.
At what point do you realize sometimes you just need sit down somewhere and not do anything? Jackie Chan has not yet realized this, as he agreed to make this terrible movie. The Foreigner, it’s about a man whose daughter is killed in the act of terrorism. The man, of course, gets angry and violently pressures a government official, whose may hold clues to the killers' identities.
Doesn’t it sound good? Yeah. They get you good.
The score was good. Though I will say, it was very jumpy in style. There were times when it seemed more produced by classical instruments other time they appeared to be more electronic. In all honesty, the stylistic changes weren’t too noticeable or had a considerable impact on the film.
But, that is pretty much the only thing worth nothing out of the whole movie.
Overall, the movie was a stretch. The acting, on everyone’s part, was dull and flat. Shall I even mention that this film almost has the saddest form of a climax? By which I mean, it barely existed. I had high hopes for some super cool fight scenes, maybe some cool chase scenes, or at least SOME action that should accompany an action/revenge flick. Instead, I was forced to sit through mediocre fights, and Jackie Chan moping around the woods in camo for two hours.
Like, come on now, do better. It just wasn’t…. good. I barely remember what happened and I just watched it.
FLOOR OR DOOR?
Should it have been left on the cutting room floor or should you be running out the door to see it?
Let us all breathe, forget this movie ever came out, and hopefully Jackie Chan already has.
