    Looks good. Reminds me of Falling Down.

    Wonder what, ordinarily, the metrics of success a film of this budget / type would be? Big test of the psychology of customers & Americans really, given their President & some of its news media has been keen to downplay this pandemic's severity.

    Actually looks like it might be an entertaining, low-brow thriller; shades of Falling Down with Crowe's character[*]. Not worth risking a cinema for though.


    [*] I mean, I assume it's a character & not just a docudrama of a typical day for Russell Crowe :D

    The trailer gives the entire movie away.

    It also butchers a Nirvana song

    This doesn't interest me at all.

    Seems like nothing new, very paint-by-numbers. The trailer is the movie.

    Also Russell looks rough.

    Went to it today.
    One of those films that makes you scream 'Oh ffs just go to/call the police' at the screen numerous times. Russell Crowe glorious as a complete headcase. Female lead (for me) so annoying, I was almost on Russell's side. Her character has no development whatsoever. Last 5 minutes seemed terribly rushed.

    Overall? Meh. Forgettable enough.
    Interesting experience in the cinema sitting far apart with masks and being ushered out the back door of the Multiplex into a back yard afterwards, rather than going out the main door.

    Watched it last night. It could have been so much better. I agree with above that Crowe played the part excellent , Jesus he put on some timber :).
    A couple of good scenes with some bloodshed especially in the first 20 mins
    Overall I’d give it 3/5
