Rights and wrongs
There is nothing much to say of rights and wrongs in the movie, but you will enjoy it only if you love action movies. There are lot of smaller twists but none of them fell like engaging at any step. Every other department did good job to achieve the reality. But not much of a story there to see or appreciate. it’s just an another movie. VFX, sound, Music, cinematography, etc. they did their job.
We could not expect much from Liam Neeson like we seen in Schindler’s List. this is of his another action movies but as a truck driver. Marcus Thomas did terrific job, Laurence Fishburne is unnecessary casting choice for such a small role. Amber Midthunder did fine and Benjamin Walker who looks like young Eric Bana did okay. Holt McCallany also not really needed for this movie, his worthy time on screen. waste of good actors. Story wise its good, but most of the concentration goes towards trucks rather than making mining episode better. There is no much drama with miners, we forget about it through whole trucks issue, so we never feel the urgency of wellheads ever.
We don’t want to give Graph representation as it’s a straight line all over. we can’t give more than 5.0/10 for this movie. But action part is really enjoyable though.
