And they shall know thy wrath...
I must admit that "I Am Wrath" turned out to be somewhat better than I had expected it to be. Why? Well, honestly, then I didn't have all that much hope for it, since it was an action movie starring John Travolta.
But director Chuck Russell managed to take my lack of expectations and give me a good and wholesome entertaining experience with "I Am Wrath".
The story is about Stanley (played by John Travolta) whose wife is killed, and he seeks out vengeance upon those responsible. And he seeks help with his old friend Dennis (played by Christopher Meloni) to accomplish this particularly violent task.
Actually John Travolta and Christopher Meloni really carried the movie quite nicely. They really worked out so great together on the screen in their individual roles. And that really helped to lift up the movie. I am a bit surprised to see that Rebecca De Mornay was in this movie, because I don't recall seeing her on the screen, or maybe she has just changed a lot in appearance since last I saw her in a movie (which was the 2012 movie "Apartment 1303"). I just saw her name here listed on IMDb.
But I will also say, that the storyline was quite good and entertaining, despite it being fairly generic and predictable. But hey, this is a movie meant for entertaining, right? There is a good amount of action throughout the course of "I Am Wrath", and it is spiced up with some fairly nice characters as well.
I was actually genuinely entertained by "I Am Wrath" and it turned out to be a nice surprise. So I am settling on a rating of six out of ten stars. It is quite worth taking the time to sit down and watch this action / crime movie.
