Stanley (John Travolta) arrives at an airport returning home from a job interview. He is greeted by his loving wife at the airport terminal and the two briefly catch up. As they walk outside to their car, Stanley and his wife are attacked by a couple of street thugs. Stanley is knocked out and his wife is murdered…
Stanley seeks justice by investigating his wife’s killer and the real reason behind it all. Like most revenge movies, Stanley has a dark hidden past and a set of skills that he revisits to uncover who is responsible for his wife’s death.
Without spoiling anything, there seems to be a trend in the world of cinema presently- an older man loses something, he just happens to have a set of skills and the villains have messed with the wrong man blah blah blah.
I Am Wrath is overall just another B grade revenge story with a predictable storyline straight to the finish line. While I don’t normally mind John Travolta, this is a very disappointing film for his career. I feel he is trying his best, but the scriptwriting and direction here couldn’t help him deliver something fresh or exciting.
From an action point of view, our hero is able to keep the enemies down with one bullet, and perfectly fires each shot. But our villains continually miss and the hero seems bulletproof. Sure, this normally sounds like fun but it’s actually rather painful to see. And for some reason, John Travolta is dressed between a Terminator and The Punisher.
