"The Beekeeper (David Ayer, 2024)"


          

Saw this shit Saturday night in IMAX.


It's exactly what you expect from a "action" movie starring Jason Statham and directed by David Ayer dropping in January. Mad bee puns too.


This shit will be on Amazon Prime Video in February. Just wait till then. Even then you could still skip it.

If anyone can tell me what "protect the hive" means, please do.

"Wanna bumble with the bee, huh?"

Jason Statham is almost always a guaranteed skip with Ritchie's excellent Wrath of Man being a recent exception. David Ayer post-Suicide Squad is ALWAYS a guaranteed skip.

A lot of you players ain't okay.

I have a soft spot in my heart for my January Actioners, aka TNT Cinema. I am the target audience for a movie like this. I hope it delivers.

Let me know when you go, and I'll take the day off to go with you. I love these silly ass action films, especially if it has JS. Parker was amazing, both Mechanic films....*chef's kiss*


Films like these make me miss the Action films of the 80's so much.

We'll see some other fun action flick together, but Emily loves these sorts of movies too. We've had this circled on the calendar for a month or so now, lol.

Josh Hutcherson is playing crypto bro Hunter Biden, Jason Statham has one of the best fights of his career, and it's got one of the silliest scripts you can imagine. An enjoyable time at the movies!

Like the Accountant, the Interpreter (more of a thriller) and the Commuter (ok less a job and part of having a job).

The kid from Hunger Games is garbage, turning in a performance that could work on, say, an episode of SVU as the Rape Bro Of The Week, but somehow manages to be trash on a movie where the bar is low going in.

That’s the one big miss here.

And it’s filled with idiotic commentary from just about everyone from start to finish. Tighten that up and things easily improve.

I didn’t expect much, but this shit felt like the writers and half the cast didn’t either.

And yet I thoroughly enjoyed it due to a few exceptions:

-Phylicia Rashad, but that was expected. She had nothing to work with and yet she made magic from it.

-The scumbag scammer bro who got her was perfect. I loved every second of his screen time. That’s how you do b movie cheese.

-The mafia middleman running the main call center. Another home run. Dude chewed the scenery every moment he was on.

-Statham made the most of very little, enough where I want to see where he goes and what he does next. I’d like to see a bit of history to go with it.

I think with a few different choices this could have been a good action flick and not just dumb fun.

I was happy with the dumb fun I got because I knew what I was signing up for, but it’s rare when I come out of a movie like this feeling like they left something on the table. This one does. I think the “Beekeeper” premise actually has legs.

-Sig-

“Why didn’t you do this in your own god damn country?"

-All Stah's view on undocumented immigrants wanting to be treated like human beings.
