Athena (2022)

Romain Gavras directs Dali Benssalah, Sami Slimane and Anthony Bajon in this French action drama where a project is laid under siege during the protest of a youth’s death at the hands of the police.

Amazing no cuts opener – Mad Max: Fury Road but gritty, urban. Histrionic and spectacular throughout. But by the end you can’t help but think some serious issues have been boiled down to perfume advert visuals. Lacks the intensity and verisimilitude of its forebears.
