Those Who Wish Me Dead movie review: An entertaining, albeit a conventional thriller

Sheridan, who also wrote (but did not direct) 2016’s brilliant Hell or High Water, also a Neo Western feature, brings some of that film’s sensibilities here, particularly that feeling that each character seems just world-weary — tired of their job and their life. It is clearly a difficult role that she manages to pull off. Dealing with guilt over something that happened in her past, she holds herself responsible for the deaths of three children and a fellow smokejumper in a forest fire.×1.png

Those Who Wish Me Dead movie review: This conventional thriller is saved by good characterisation and performances. Apart from Jolie, Joe Bernthal plays the role of Deputy Sherriff Ethan, who along with his wife Allison (Medina Senghore) gets tangled in the conflict. Gillen and Hoult play the role of assassins with an impassive, eerie menace. Aidan Gillen and Nicholas Hoult are the assassins.

The film has an uncommonly good, deep cast for a mid-tier production. Her motive is as much to save an innocent life as it is to redeem herself in her eyes. In India, Those Who Wish Me Dead is available on Book My Show Stream. It is not often you see actors of such calibre given such, well, thinly written roles, and they do their job well — which is basically being frightening bad guys. But if you just want to have a good time, you can’t go wrong with this one. (Photo: Warner Bros)

angelina jolie Overall, Those Who Wish Me Dead is a capable action-thriller that is entertaining and well-acted but is also admittedly a bit garden-variety. If you are looking for something fresh or profound, there are other options. Her path crosses a child called Connor (Finn Little) who is hunted by two ruthless assassins who have already killed his father. Jolie essays the role of a smokejumper called Hannah Faber who is posted at a fire lookout tower. 📣 The Indian Express is now on Telegram. While the film is quite conventional in its genre and its plot moves along a predictable path, it is elevated by strong performances, well-drawn characters, and pacing.
