I really like David Ayer’s movies: End of Watch was particularly brilliant, and I am so looking forward to his upcoming WWII movie with Brad Pitt, Fury.
But I don’t know about this one. Ayer’s movies need really great actors to pull them off, and while Arnold Schwarzenegger may be an enjoyable presence as an action star, I don’t think he has the chops for serious drama. And without that, this isn’t a David Ayer movie. Instead, it’s just a lot a blood and brain matter and swearing.
And Jesus, that’s Sam Worthington?
