Wild Card Reviews
...with an unsurprising climax, weak story and repetitive action, the film fails to be half as good as a regular Statham gag must mandatorily be.
The strange thing is, there is a lot of talking in the movie, as if the filmmakers want us to invest in the characters. As a result, there are only three action scenes in the film, and it becomes a real slog to sit through 80 minutes of boring characters blabbering for just 10 minutes of a** kicking. On the bright side, a couple of stunts are in slo mo, probably a first for Statham.
Wild Card is a one time watch with some nicely done action sequences and a couple of honest performances by seasoned actors. Watch out for short cameos by Sofia Vergara and Jason Alexander in the beginning of the film.
