All in all, Ready Player One was tons of fun. It had a great cast that gelled well together and it had a very relateable and rootable story that was told properly without being overpowered by the CGI. It had a great core message that can be applied to today’s world, reality is what matters. Word.
The Foreigner was, all in all, an interesting action thriller. However, I felt that it was slightly imbalanced because the focus was tipped too much in favor of Pierce Brosnan. Perhaps it was a conscious decision of director Martin Campbell, who wanted to play it safe, given its Jackie’s first foray into this type of action, but the film didn’t really tell the story of The Foreigner and relegated him to a secondary character with the way things unfolded. The action part on the other hand, was heavily inclined towards Jackie’s character leaving nothing for Pierce who once kicked ass as the legendary Remington Steel and James Bond. This, I believe was a great disservice to the actors and the audience.
All in all, Jack Reacher was a great sequel and an awesome standalone movie. He’s like McGyver without the science, but he more than makes up for it with the great cardio. A wonderfully entertaining movie that engages the mind and the senses with just the right amount of stimuli. Thumbs up across the board.
