Excellent movie
21 October 2017 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

At the center and the heart of this movie, is a powerhouse performance from Frank Grillo as the Wheelman of the title. He carries most of the film on his own shoulders, with early interactions through phone conversations as the conflict increases and the tension rises. As the story progresses and the plot thickens, he peels back the layers and we get to see what makes this character tick, what matters to him and why he has gotten himself into this mess. His performance alone was the main hook for me and held me from the opening to the final frames.

You often read the term visceral when it comes to describing some modern movies, but few, if any have been so successful in creating a tense, tight atmosphere where you actually feel like you are in the middle of the story and right there in that car with the hero. This works in part because of some bold and brave camera placements and cinematography, which helps to show the story and events from the driver's perspective. But also due to a tight, well written script which builds and builds to the climax and at its heart is a story about a man risking it all for his fractured family.

This was a movie I was waiting to be released and am delighted it lived up to all of its potential. I enjoyed watching it as a piece of entertainment but on next viewing I will be studying it as a student of film. Studying the excellent performances from all involved and the tight, well written script but also how well it manages to be a full on contained (a single location within multiple locations) experience.

This is the first film out of the gate (and very strong start) from Warparty, which is Frank Grillo and Joe Carnahan's new partnership/production company and I've read hints of potential sequels. I hope we get to see more of this character as this film is a very successful throwback to when movies where more about character, story and heart and not just about scale.
