    And... ACTIONNNN
    A thrilling film in which Ryan Gosling portrays a highly skilled assassin who operates as a 'gray man', a dangerous menacing creature of an agent that lurks in the shadows of light and sight. His god given ability to single handily tear down anything in front of him with aggressive precise combat skills progresses the film, like the drums to a song.

    He ventures far and wide in his travels, meeting the star studded cast as the story unwraps. Littered with humour and witty characters it's an enjoyment. Complimented with beautiful shots and cinematic marvels, with all its crisp colour it's an ease to the eye.

    One thing I would say is that Ryan portrays a silent, deadly killer, a sociopath but not a nasty one, just a soul that desensitised to the danger of his job. A trait that you learn to realise stems from his past. He isn't a bond, or a charming, chivalrous man. He's a pawn on a board, never at rest. Gosling portrays this, so don't expect the routine template the bond films follow.

    A fun film.

    Needed more drone shots
    Just kidding, had enough of them. And it isnt the problem with the movie.

    Beginning was ok, but like a lot of people, the story was just too cliché and uninteresting and a lot of the action over the top and too crazy for me. I had to think a lot about Fast and furious 9 stunts in this movie, but somehow couldnt enjoy it here. While FF later on felt like they dont take themselves seriously and just tried to do something special and crazier every time, i couldnt watch this one "ironically" and laugh or look in awe about it. The scenes in prague are just ridiculous, but not in an interesting way, sometimes even just dumb. Like why would trained killers stand in the street and shoot up into a 3rd floor window when nobody is standing close to it. The funny oneliners didnt land for me. Crazy cast but like said before, story doesnt have much to offer for them to show their talents. The acting of the bridgerton-guy felt pretty bad to me, atleast he didnt have much screentime.

    Go and spent 2 hours on a different movie, just rewatch Bourne or turn your brain off and hold your expectations really low. GJ Netflix.
