The Rhythm Section - 2020 Movie Review

The Movie: The Rhythm Section

The Director: Reed Morano

The Cast: Blake Lively, Jude Law, Sterling K. Brown,

The Story: A woman seeks revenge against those who orchestrated a plane crash that killed her family.

The Review:
Going into this movie, I wasn't quite sure what it was. Is it a drama, an action movie, a spy thriller, or something else entirely. The one thing I did know is that this would be Blake Lively as we've never seen her before. Her character is very dark and raw and she has gone places mentally and emotionally that have been caused by extreme trauma.

After watching the movie, I am not quite sure what it was. It tried to be a drama, and action movie, a spy thriller, and a few other things sprinkled in for I'm not sure why. There were bits and pieces of dozens of movies we've seen before and none of it was given a hint of an original twist in any sort of way. It was almost like the film makers took a paint by numbers formula and put this story together in about as basic and predictable way as possible.

When it was over, my friend asked me if I liked it and I said I did, mainly for Blake Lively's performance as she did a fine job with the available material. After further consideration, I have decided that the movie was a completely forgettable experience and I see it getting quickly lost in the Hollywood shuffle of release day rotations.
