I Am Wrath (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: I Am Wrath
Year: 2016
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
Directed By: Chuck Russell
Starring: John Travolta, Christopher Meloni, Amanda Schull
About: A man is out for justice after a group of corrupt police officers are unable to catch his wife's killer.

My Review:
When my mum came home with this movie I had no idea what to expect as I had never heard of it before but liking a lot of movies with John Travolta I had high hopes that I would enjoy it. This film did surprise me a lot and something in which I enjoyed a lot more than I had expected.

Starting I Am Wrath with Stanley's wife dying and how he went out for revenge made me think that this was somewhat based off of a John Wick movie, however as a fan of the trilogy this didn't bother me at all. Showing how the police and people higher up didn't care about who killed his wife and even let the killer go as he was part of a gang in which the police were controlled by and how the main character decides as a result to go after them himself was something in which I thought was a good way of bringing the character to life and really giving him some backstory. By also showing how the government was controlled by the gang it showed how everyone had a price and with the right material on people you could be invincible which makes the audience worried for the main character and his friend Dennis who decides to be by his side through it all. I found that his friend having his back after all the years apart from each other was really sweet and made me love their friendship and how they were willing to both put their lives in each others hands. The action within this was also well done and I liked how they had different deaths throughout the film while discovering who was behind Stanley's wife's death. Not only this but one fight fight scene in particular stood out to me which was with Dennis in his shop and actually had the fight hurt him and it actually show and him reacting to his pain, I feel like this doesn't happen in enough movies and make them feel unbelievable a lot of the time. Finally, I really liked how at the ending the daughter finds out that her father is still alive and that he survived the hospital visit from the cops who tried to kill him. Showing this made me happy and showed how pleased the daughter was even though she didn't agree with what both Stanley and Dennis done to avenge her mother.

There was one thing in particular about I Am Wrath that did frustrate me and that was one of the deaths in which they had their throat slit and there was no blood. Personally, this really annoyed me especially when there was a lot smaller things in which made the characters bleed and so made this death really stand out to me and kept me rather annoyed throughout.

Overall, I think that this was a really good film and one that I didn't think I would enjoy as much as I did. I would recommend this to people who are fans of the John Wick series of movies and those whoa are a fan of action movies. I would definitely see this again and this was a great surprise for me.

My Rating: 4/5
