'Wheelman': Film Review | Fantastic Fest 2017
« dnia: Września 26, 2017, 09:45 »
Frank Grillo is front and center in the crime-flick debut of writer-director Jeremy Rush.

A close-quarters crime film whose protagonist stays behind the wheel but is rarely in the driver's seat, Wheelman gives fan-favorite tough guy Frank Grillo a chance to open up in a starring vehicle. The directing debut of Jeremy Rush, this solid genre pic plays like a pulpy cousin to Steven Knight's 2013 Locke, less formally rigorous but more inviting. It will be a welcome diversion for those who stumble across it on Netflix, where it debuts next month, and should help raise its lead's profile in the genre world.

Grillo plays the eponymous character, who makes his case for anonymity in a nice scene-setting exchange: Hired to drive two bank robbers he doesn't know to the scene of their crime, he bristles when a talkative felon (Shea Whigham) wants to play getting-to-know-you. The men find a testosterone-soaked detente before the gunmen exit the car and go rob the bank, at which point the words "to the scene" in the previous sentence come into play: A mysterious man claiming to be the heist's organizer calls getaway driver and insists that, once the thieves deposit the loot in his trunk, he must speed away and leave them in the parking lot. While cops arrive to arrest them, the wheelman is to take the money to a drop location nearby.
