    A lot of this films dialogue was unscripted, and you can really tell as the interaction between the two leads feels so natural, it’s really refreshing. The acting from both Ray Romano and Mark Duplass is fantastic, the balance of sadness and humour is a tough to do, but it’s done perfectly here. The story is heartbreaking but it shines a light on the importance of friendship. Deserves my first five stars of 2019 releases.

    What a total blast. A great twist on the revenge genre that’s badass and avoids clichés. Thrilling action from start to finish and surprisingly funny.

    Wow, what an insane ride this is, two hours go by so fast that it left me wanting more. Everything about this film looks stunning including the camera work, the use of colour, the props, the landscape shots and of course the ridiculous stunts that will leave you breathless. I'm so glad this film uses mostly practical effects because it makes those car scenes look a whole lot cooler. Acting is very good all around but Charlize Theron steals the show.

    Don't wait on the disc/digital release, you need to see this in the cinema, and if you can in IMAX. It's mind blowing.

    This movie is downright ridiculous, but you know what? I liked it. It has plenty of moments that made me laugh out loud, especially James Franco's facial expressions. I have a feeling a lot of the hating is purely down to the fact that this movie has had so much exposure. Don't take it seriously, it's stupid fun.
