THE GUNMAN (2015)


If you like the relatively new genre of old geezers as assassins and avenging angels well then by all means take a look at this year's The Gunman (#94). Sean Penn is a killer who is suddenly being pursued eight years after he was the lead gunmen with others in an assassination that started all kinds of trouble in the Congo (public service message: other countries shouldn't muck around in the Congo). Anyway, he's old and has post-concussion syndrome and yadda yadda he kicks everyone's ass while bleeding from all sorts of places. It's not a bad action flick with a really good cast (Ray Winstone, Javier Bardem, Idris Elba) but this didn't exactly redefine Sean Penn's career. Liam Neeson stands alone as the ultimate old geezer ass kicker. Oh BTW The Gunman was directed by the guy who directed Taken (Pierre Morel).
