Why watch this film?
Adam Clay (Jason Statham) is not happy. He is on a brutal revenge attempt after an event that shook his life and now poses risks to the entire world. Why? He is a former agent of a powerful and clandestine organization known as Beekeepers. Directed by the volatile David Ayer (of the dreadful Suicide Squad but the good Fury), The Beekeeper relies heavily on the success of John Wick: not only for having a protagonist who kills everything and everyone in his path in pursuit of nearly unattainable revenge but also for its neon-oriented aesthetic, trying to distinguish itself. There are some Ayer excesses, as happened with Suicide Squad, with unnecessary camera movements and the like. What helps the film is Statham's charisma, skillfully blending humor and action in good proportions.
