Since I was in the mood to see an action type of film, I decided to check out this film. I’m glad I did – I was not disappointed.
Basically, this film is about a regular guy James Reese (played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers) whose sole desire is to become a special operation field agent. He is willing to do whatever it takes to make his dream job.
In the beginning, Reese goes through a series of mini missions as part of his initiation into the secret society of special operation field agents. The mini missions seem really easy and miniscule in nature, he is wanting more. And, then his dream comes true – one last mission in order to gain his dream job.
During this last mission, he meets his future partner special agent Charlie Wax (played by John Travolta). Now, Charlie is not your typical guy – he’s a B.M.F.
Reese and Wax are definitely a match made in heaven – they are complete opposites. It was definitely entertaining to watch them interact together – there were quite a number of funny and entertaining moments.
Though, Wax shows Reese the reality of being a special field agent – it’s not all glitz and glamour. There’s a lot more involved than Reese thought. He has to wonder, “Did I sign up for this?”
(Note: I don’t want to ruin it for you, but let’s just say the turning point was a bit predictable. Though, not entirely – there was still an element of mystery that kept me wanting to watch more).
Regarding the action in the film, it was exhilarating. I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride the whole way through – there was definitely a lot of adrenalin in the air.
Overall, I enjoyed the movie very much. The action alone was worth it. As for the ending, I felt it gave a sense of closure – I definitely felt like it was a good, entertaining movie.
If you’re in the mood for an action type film, I do recommend this one.
Happy movie watching!
