See all comments
Groundhog day is the comedy version, Happy Death Day is the horror version, Edge of Tomorrow is the Sci-fi, and now comes Boss Level, the Action version! And i love all 4 of them.
Finally got to see Frank Grillo as the headliner in a big budget film and he killed it, both as a actionstar and with alot of comedy.
Loved this film. My only negative comment is that they under-used Mel Gibson as a villain.. other than that i loved the film.
Nothing new under the sun, but still managed to win me over at some point.
In Boss Level, we get the high-octane action film version of Groundhog Day, and because we know the drill by now, it starts dozens of loops into it. No waiting! We'll get there eventually via flashbacks. We've been getting a LOT of time loop movies recently - I wonder if being trapped in the darkest timeline, or being stuck at home under quarantine, has anything to do with this zeitgeist mod - but I tend to enjoy them. Frank Grillo isn't the smartest time looped here, but the film acknowledges that, and he's funnier than I would have thought. The title and the graphics throughout evoke video games, but that's thematically tied to an important thing in his life, so it's more than just about a sense of fun, though it's that too. This movie is a lot of fun. A bit over-narrated, but (give or take the needless ambiguity of the final seconds) fun. And while I could do without ever having to watch Mel Gibson on screen, the movie makes up for it with plenty of people I DO want to watch - Michell Yeoh, Ken Jeong, Naomi Watts... so yeah, a big junk-food thumbs up from me.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
