Jason Statham says very, very little in his new film. The English actor only needs to remember three pages of dialogue. But as always, he is very expressive with his hands. And the guns in them.

“You’re not much to talk about, are you Mary Poppins?” He is mocked in a locker room. Who do you think whoever said he was going to survive this movie?

Steely Statham meets with director and writer Guy Ritchie for a stylish vengeance mashup, Wrath of Man, built on a partnership that previously included Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and Revolver has produced.

Both men are in their ideal element “Wrath of man” – Statham on a cool and persistent assassination attempt by the bad guys and Ritchie who captures everything with his kinetic cinematic style and troubled camera.

Loosely based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck, the story begins with the chaotic, bloody attack on an armored truck in Los Angeles that is hauling money, and excitingly returns to that key moment.

Hired as a security guard after the attack, Statham soon shines at Fortico Security, largely because he’s deadly enough to kill potential thieves – including a moonlit Post Malone – without ever crouching or evasive. He just walks right up to her, pumps bullets, and never misses. Someone calls it “clearly precise”.
