Mr. Right was released in 2015. (same year The Revenant came out) It received mixed reviews from critics and failed to make a profit at the box office.
Today’s review contains SPOILERS. If you wish to scroll through my article, read at your own risk. Keep in mind, this is a short review, because it’s not a two hour plus action-adventure thriller like Daniel Craig’s James Bond movies. Just an hour and a half action rom-com. Is it a hit or miss? Time to find out.
Right & Wrong Aspects
Right: Sam Rockwell did an ok job for his performance. He also did his own dancing.
Tim Roth did a good job for his performance. He speaks like Christopher Walken. Perhaps Chris wasn’t available.
RZA has a role as a henchman. He also did a good job for his performance.
Action Sequences are pretty good.
Bullet Time (slow motion) is displayed in certain fight scenes. Seeing the action in bullet time makes me wanna watch a much better movie like “Watchmen.”
A “Wilhelm Scream” is heard.
James Bond is mentioned. “Spectre” also came out in 2015. I’d rather watch this over Mr. Right.
Wrong: Max Landis (John Landis’ real life disgraced son) made a couple of really big boo boos.
The movie is boring as heck. That’s pretty bad folks. Many characters except Tim Roth are completely forgettable.
Anna Kendrick’s performance was kinda obnoxious. She’s like the youngest sister in the family who doesn’t know when to shut her yap. D.W. from “Arthur” is less annoying and likable.
Cinematography suffers from a bad case of Shaky Cam. Was the cameraman consuming too much speed in his system? Holding a camera still isn’t rocket science.
An early romance happened during The First Act. In real life, it’ll take a week or more for two people to get know one another until a relationship is fully established. UGH! I hate early relationships.
Hate to break it to ya, but I didn’t care about the chemistry between the two characters.
In The Third Act, Anna Kendrick’s character immediately acquires a set of combat skills. This would never happen in real life. It’ll take years to master fight moves. Bruce Lee endured a lot of vigorous training than this silly buffoon. I have no choice but to Double Down this con for breaking my Suspension Of Disbelief.
Product Placement (Pee Pee for short) featuring brands such as Trojan & Hershey’s. I’ll let this con slide, because I couldn’t find any other brand to shove down my throat. You win this round movie, but not for long.
The Final Verdict: D-
From my point of view, Mr. Right is a forgettable action rom-com lacking substance missing almost every single target like a stormtrooper. I never cared about this movie. It belongs in a box labeled, “Not Caring” place the box in the attic. If you wanna watch a legit comedy that’ll make you laugh so hard, I highly recommend “Kung Pow: Enter The Fist.” If you wanna watch a really good action rom-com about hitmen, watch “Mr. And Mrs. Smith.”
