It has been a while since I saw a movie that had nothing to do with anything political or anything pop-culture or trying to stay woke. This movie is just pure action/comedy with the exact dose of romance to make sure the movie is not an all-out macho show. If you are looking for something to make sense of, or to find a single ounce of realism in this movie, then I am sorry you are sitting in the wrong cinema sit. This movie was made for enjoyment and enjoyment only. From nowhere the main character can fight, he can withstand some injury and the effect of drugs to make sure the plans of the “bad guys” fall apart.

The movie boasts of amazing explosions, stunts, scenery and acting that will make you feel like you are back in the 90s watching the action movies of those days.

The movie plot is about Colt (Ryan Gosling) who is a stuntman and has made a name for himself behind the scenes as a good stunt actor, working behind Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), a very rich and famous actor. The movie he is currently working on with his camerawoman girlfriend (Jody played by Emily Blunt) had an accident which led to Colt getting severely injured.

He fell into a dark hole and abandoned the stunt world and Jody, for eighteen months.

While now working as a valet, he gets a call that Jody has gotten a big break, and she is directing her first film and has asked for him to be in it. He hadn’t spoken to Jody since the accident eighteen months ago, and the idea that she wanted to work with him made him take the job.

He gets to set and discovers that Jody is not aware that he is on set, neither did she ask for him, the Producer Gail (Hannah Waddingham), who called him, had lied to him to get him to come to the movie production set. She lets him know that the lead actor Tom has gone missing and without him, Jody will not be able to finish the film. She convinces Colt that he has known and worked with Tom for a long time, so he has a better chance of finding Tom than anyone. Also, it is in the best interest of Jody to keep this under wraps so that the studio does not know and shutdown the movie production.

Colt agreed to help, so that Jody does not lose her big break. Helping to find Tom drags Colt into a big dark hole which ended up getting him involved in a murder he did not know about and has him on the run.

Amazing movie, and it is sad that the movie did not stay long in the theatres for many to go and see, but it is now available to stream.
