VOD news 30/22: ‘The invisible agent’, heap action to see in one go

VOD News brings you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+… and although the unseen agent It is not the best, of course it is the highlight of a week, again, on the loose side. Or is it the heat?

In short, it seems that Netflix has recovered the pulse, although both last week with the shame of resident Evil how is it with The invisible man, he does it due to the absence of an opponent. Otherwise…

Otherwise, the unseen agent (The Gray Man) is undoubtedly the most striking release of the week, as they say, for various reasons… and none of them is the quality of the film. But do not despair: while resident Evil it is an abject atrocity, The invisible man it’s just mediocre. An action movie of the bunch, rehash of the rehash of the rehash, which, however, can be seen. It’s something!

As for the elements for which it stands out The invisible mango through the production budget, the largest in Netflix history along with that of Red alert: 200 million dollars that have been used to pay for the script and direction of the Russo brothers (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame) or to parade his popular cast through great locations throughout the world, pyrotechnics included.

Names like Ryan Gosling (La La Land, blade runner 2049), Ana de Armas (daggers in the back, no time to die), Chris Evans (Captain America, avengers), Billy Bob Thornton (Fargo, gravestone), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist, of love and monsters), Alfred Woodard (12 years a slave, luke cage) or Wagner Moura (narcs). In fact, it all stays in the family, because the Russos wrote tyler rake for Netflix, Captain America himself is out there… Gosling and De Armas already worked together on blade runner 2049… And yet, the result is quite… mediocre, it bears repeating.

Of course, that is usually the fate of Netflix with its action production: the bad abounds, the good is scarce and they still do not get anything memorable, no matter how much money they spend. Personally, before The invisible man I would recommend the above Red alert either tyler rakebut also 6 in the shadow and, if you rush me, Kate. That said, to hit a session on the sofa is enough. The pity is that with such a display of means it is reduced to a forgettable pastime.
