Wild Card: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lover

First, we would like to thank Captive Cinema for inviting us last Tuesday to the special screening of Wild Card at SM Megamall. Jason Statham is back in solo action after the overstuffed Expendables 3 last year, and before he battles Vin Diesel's company in Fast and Furious 7, he gambles here in Wild Card.

Nick Wild (Jason Statham), is a Las Vegas bodyguard with a gambling problem. He agrees to help a friend (Dominik García-Lorido) who is beaten up and left on the streets by a gangster mob boss named Danny (Milo Ventimiglia.) With their revenge plan ended successfully; Danny isn't impressed as he put a huge target around Nick's head. 
If you're a fan of Jason Statham like us, you will surely enjoy this especially when the action scenes start to roll. You'll be entertained by the way Jason Statham handles his opponents as he dispenses them in a satisfying fashion. It is choreographed well with  loads of surprises, especially to the action junkies. The problem is the film didn't have too many of these as it mostly revolve around the disjointed plot that weaves through different corners that sometimes do not make sense.

Jason Statham still brings the charisma that the lead character needs. He builds the necessary momentum before he strikes and delivers his usual stuffs. Milo Ventimiglia did well playing as the villain, and we loved the short but meaningful appearance of Stanley Tucci.
Overall, Wild Card is still an average action flick served hot by Jason Statham. It doesn't offer much except for slick action scenes that are definitely made to impress.

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 6.5 out of 10 stars

I felt there were fewer of these fight scenes though. Statham got to do more dramatic acting here.
