I actually like Ruby Rose, not a great actress for sure but can be entertaining but she seemed to have quickly devolved into direct-to-video territory with this and her previous film, The Doorman, neither would've gotten a theatrical release even without COVID-19. Anyway, this one could've been passably entertaining if not for the terrible editing, atrocious photography (not sure what was with the green tint or over-saturation of colors in other scenes. Also doesn't help it was predictable. Oh, and Morgan Freeman takes another paycheck, this one spending his entire time in a wheelchair and pretty much in one location. **2.0/5**
This was one of the most painful movies to watch in recent memory, and I watch ALOT of movies. It was more like watching a school film project- from high school. The dialogue consisted of short one-line exchanges, the action and tension were non-existent, the acting is amateurish, the plot paper-thin and overly-convoluted. In fact, the photography and atmosphere were so overly-styled, that they clearly spent FAR more time and money worrying how it was going to look than on the actual story/screenplay. Looong scenes of motorcycle riding, so there's that for any enthusiasts. So much time spent on it, that the short and pointless scenes with people in them seemed to be there just as a jump point to another motorcycle scene. Any vaguely interesting moment was put in the trailer, so if you're still interested, you could probably just watch that and save 1 hour and 31 minutes of your life that you'll definitely want back.
