Polar (2019)

Jonas Åkerlund directs Mads Mikkelsen, Vanessa Hudgens and Katheryn Winnick in this action movie where an assassin tries to retire only to be hunted down so he cannot cash in his retirement fund.

Juvenile but energetic. You can forgive its overbearing attempts to shock as they are so goofy. Still not very funny but just ludicrous. Crass, brash, flash. When Mads does his thing the action proves acceptable and that’s why I clicked on it in the first place. Matt Lucas makes for a terrible villain but suits the overall tone. Hard to kick this to death when its ambitions are so basic.
