Samaritan is a by the numbers action flick but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
One of the key problems with a lot of modern movie making, is the constant need to experiment and at times, inject social messages into what it supposed to be entertainment.
Samaritan follows a well known and well worn, by the numbers, action film formula. It tries to throw in a twist I saw coming pretty early on but that’s alright. In essence, this film is inherently watchable. Stallone still has excellent screen presence and the chemistry, between him and the young boy, works well.
My advice, ignore the carping from the soy latte class of movie goers who bemoan a lack of sophistication. Its often the simple things in life that are most enjoyable and this is one of them.
In summary, Samaritan wont win any accolades for high brow cinema but what it does, it does competently enough to be reasonably enjoyable and entertaining. For many of us, tired of shallow cinema sophistry and intellectual pretension, that’s what really matters.
FULL SPOILER-FREE REVIEW @ https://www.msbreviews.com/movie-reviews/samaritan-spoiler-free-review
“Samaritan holds quite an interesting premise, but sadly, it’s yet another addition to the list of films with wasted potential.
What could have been a truly dark, fascinating story about two superpowered brothers with distinct views on life is, instead, a bland, predictable, formulaic narrative with less Sylvester Stallone than expected.
The cast offers good performances, but choosing to focus on Javon Walton’s generic character when the prologue leaves room for such an engrossing exploration of the past proves to be a terrible decision. Action-wise, it lacks the energy and creativity necessary to entertain most viewers, despite the dedicated stunt work.
A tad frustrating in retrospect.”
Stallone gets to act his age and still be a credible tough guy.
Didn’t have high expectations, but this was a pretty good movie. The story, with Stallone as a retired super hero living anonymously in a dystopian near future, allows him to play his own age while still being a tough guy in a credible way. The idea works well for him and he is perfect for the part. The kid, who the story sort of revolves around, is also good, and I expect to see a lot more of Danish actor Asbaek (from Bergen and Game of Thrones) who is excellent as an almost sympathetic bad guy. Thankfully the director avoids the one thing I find so annoying about these kinds of movies – endless fight scenes.
Age old story still enjoyable one
RATED 8/10 Language: English Source: Amazon Prime RECOMMENDED
Age old story and presentation, but still watchable. There is no lagging moment and the action blocks are quite decent. Sylvester as super hero is fun to watch. Even though it is run of the mill, it has some surprisingly good characters, moments and dialogs.
Definitely I am recommending because of Sylvester presence and for his body language. The hero twist is good and it adds more value to Sylvester character. While watching some scenes reminds me the Tamil movie “vikram” and Kamal acting.
Enjoyable action flick to watch in the weekend. Low your expectations (par with OTT release) and you will enjoy this one.
