A tech billionaire finances a vigilante squad dedicated to removing threats to global peace. Well-made fun-but-dumb action-comedy playing to the director’s trademark obsessions and strengths in mashing up Michael Mann and Tony Scott. An auteurist work; spectacular in both the Debordian and the blowing-shit-up-good senses.
Five former soldiers plan a robbery on a drug lord’s jungle hideout. Well-sustained heist-goes-wrong thriller with a military angle. A superb cast lifts straightforward genre material, somewhat elevated by serious handling and moviemaking craftsmanship throughout.
Employees of a mysterious company are compelled to murder each other. Would-be black comedy better at delivering gloopy kills than in having much to say. Neither funny or subversive enough; it gets tiresome before 90 minutes are up.
