From the directors of Double Take, Middle Men and The Poison Rose comes this tight and clear action thriller with Morgan Freeman (Se7en) and Ruby Rose (“Orange Is the New Black“) showing what can lead to despair. A mother, Victoria (Rose), tries to forget her dark history as a Russian drug journalist.
But retired police officer Damon (Freeman) forces Victoria to take her daughter hostage. Now Victoria must defeat a series of unscrupulous gangsters with guns, courage and motorcycles or she may never see her son again.
As you can imagine, Vanquish is a very bad movie. But otherwise he’s pretty lazy, the kind that makes DTV Steven Seagal seem almost focused and engaged compared to his roars from decades ago. To describe the characters and story as “thin as paper” would be an insult to the power of the average copier.
And would justify a higher degree of brilliance than the blurry cinematography that appears everywhere. Sure, you don’t see movies like “Vanquish” for some qualities, but they actually outshine the slow, spooky action stages.
The film does not waste time on lighting or character development, but quickly tackles its questionable premises. Damon blackmails babysitter Victoria (Rose), a former Russian drug courier he sponsored while on probation, to attack a series of drug trafficking sites every night for her own benefit.
To ensure Victoria’s cooperation, she kidnaps her beautiful baby girl (Juju Journey Brener), who also suffers from a life-threatening illness. As kids usually do in these kind of movies.
A movie with this elegant excuse for almost uninterrupted action can be successful if it has humor, style, crazy vibes, catchy action and / or a great charisma that hits them all. But “Defeated” is surprisingly absent on almost every front. Vicky continues to blame people on the front lines as Gallo shows no prom talent.
Demonstrations like a motorcycle under a trailer were too familiar to be inspired. There is no depth that we should take seriously. An exception was Joel Michaely as Queen of the Burning South: “I heard you killed more people than Quentin Tarantino.
Rose’s cartoon missions, along with their messy storylines, provide enough storyline to send Vanquish off the grid. Director George Gallo curiously relieved at the finer details of how the protagonist pulls grenade from his jacket at gunpoint.
Detonates it, and manages to escape unscathed, but he has a knack for the general mood. Rose looks very stressful when she walks into an African American gang watching an unusual combination of sweet and kinky porn on the giant screen.
