Engaging from beginning to end
28 June 2018 | by LittleLottiSee all my reviews

This is probably more of a 6-star movie, but I had to bump it up a star considering that 99% of the movie is shot in the car, and a lot of that involves Wheelman talking on the phone, yet it never gets boring. From the first few minutes your interest is sparked and the rest of the movie is a thrill ride. There is a lot of profanity which I usually am not a fan of, but considering the storyline here, it didn't bother me. I do think the daughter could've been cast better, but Frank Grillo did an amazing job. I felt his panic. Wheelman doesn't try too hard, yet still has great action sequences and stylish camera shots. A pleasant surprise of a movie.
