Name-drop cash-in!

A violent, driven revenge movie loosely derived from all the other revenge movies. Tired trope after copycat cliché, this is a stereotypical story with few redeeming features. Formulaic recipe, sprinkle a few known names, albeit past their sell-by-date, cook up a random murder and garnish with carnage.

This is so poor, with diabolical dialogue, a ponderous, predictable plot and epilepsy-inducing camera work. This is all overlaid with an annoyingly intrusive soundtrack.

Terrible movie, not worth the required time investment.

6 / 10

Action packed and fast paced...

Now, I wasn't really expecting a whole lot from the 2022 action thriller "Vendetta", given the fact that this movie had Bruce Willis on the cast list. And let's just be honest, his track record these past many years haven't exactly been top notch movie productions. And seeing that the movie also had Mike Tyson on the cast list just didn't crank up any expectations to the movie.

But still, I opted to watch the movie, since it also had both Clive Standen and Thomas Jane on the cast list as well. And of course, also because it was a movie that I hadn't already seen helped play a part in making me sit down to watch what writer and director Jared Cohn had to offer.

And color me impressed, "Vendetta" was actually a good movie. Sure, the storyline was pretty straight forward, if not actually generic for an action thriller of this kind. But it sure was entertaining.

The movie has Clive Standen in the leading role, and he does carry the movie quite well with his performance. I wish that Thomas Jane would have had a bigger role, both because of his acting skill, but also because his character was one of the more colorful and interesting in the movie. Much can be said about Mike Tyson, but I will admit that he was actually fairly good in the particular role he had in the movie; it wasn't a big role, but he actually nailed it well enough. And I would also say that "Vendetta" is one of the better movies for Bruce Willis in a long, long time.

The soundtrack for the movie was just downright bad. I loathe that kind of music, so it stuck out like a sore thumb.

If you enjoy a good old fashioned action packed and fast paced action thriller then writer and director Jared Cohn actually delivers a wholesome movie with this 2022 movie titled "Vendetta".

I was genuinely entertained by the storyline, and it was nicely paced from start to end. So if you have the chance to sit down and watch "Vendetta", do so.

I am rating "Vendetta" a six out of ten stars.

41 mins in and I was done.

Couldn't get to the ending because it was just too much bad acting and ridiculousness. For a really enjoyable revenge caper, Mel Gibson's Edge of Darkness and Gerad Butler's Law Abiding Citizen will not disappoint. Those are two of my favorite the bad guys had it coming films. 41 mins of Vendetta and I was done. That was more than enough time wasted on crap. Very hard pass.

Vendetta

Bad story, bad acting, bad action.

William Duncan is out for revenge when a hoodlum's son killed his high school daughter as part of an initiation killing. With the law unable to give him justice, Duncan brings war to the hoodlum's family.

You know the movie is in trouble when then the best performance comes from Mike Tyson.

This is a rock bottom rehash of both Death Wish and The Punisher. Both Bruce Willis and Thomas Jane appeared in remakes of those two films.

Shame on those who deal with Willis's affairs that they send out an ill old man to make such rubbish.

As bad as usual

Cannot expect much when Bruce Willis is in the movie, and this one is as bad as his othersCould not take it more then 16 minutes, and I really like action moviesBruce Willis mate, it is really time to retire, the sooner the better.
