    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havenít entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    It's funny how unbashful of a mishmash this is with John Wick, Taken and the Equalizer.

    Also equally funny how they inject some needed humor into the story, particularly around Christopher Lloyd.

    Too thin given how preposterously foreboding it gets at the outset, and unlike the John Wicks there isn't enough distinctive style or grand world-building to fill in between. Odenkirk is a most inspired choice for the lead though, and at least the action is stellar throughout, with just the right amount of self-aware comedy thrown in to stay within the realm of fun no matter how bloody it increasingly gets. In fact, if it had got to its cartoonish mix of the fun, funny, and exhilarating Home Alone vibe in its finale earlier and more often, the film would have been much more my speed. 6.5/10

    Pretty much agree with all of this.

    It starts to wear out its welcome when it goes full action mode with character armor, but the casting choices and performances are fun enough that I went with it the rest of the way. Maybe one of the more unexpected surprises of the year.
