‘The Invisible Agent’, loads of action to see at once

VOD news offers you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+… and although the unseen agent It’s not the best, of course it’s the highlight of a week, again, on the loose side. Or is it the heat?

In short, it looks like Netflix has found its pulse again, even though the two last week with the shame of resident Evil how are you with The invisible Man, it does so in the absence of an adversary. Other…

Other, the unseen agent (The gray man) is undoubtedly the standout release of the week, as they say, for a variety of reasons…and none of them are the quality of the movie. But do not despair: while resident Evil it is an abject atrocity, The invisible Man it’s just mediocre. A rehash of the rehash of the rehash of the platoon action film, which, however, can be seen. It’s something!

As for the elements for which it stands out The invisible Mango through the production budget, the largest in Netflix history along with that of Red alert: 200 million dollars which were used to pay for the scenario and the realization of the Russo brothers (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame) or to scroll through its popular cast at major venues around the world, including pyrotechnics.

Names like Ryan Gosling (La La Land, Blade Runner 2049), Ana de Armas (daggers in the back, no time to die), Chris Evans (Captain America, avengers), Billy Bob Thornton (Fargo, tomb stone), Jessica Henwick (iron fist, of love and monsters), Alfred Woodard (12 years of slavery, Luke Cage) or Wagner Moura (Narcos). In fact, everything stays in the family, because the Russos wrote Tyler Rake for Netflix, Captain America himself is there… Gosling and De Armas have already worked together on Blade Runner 2049… And yet, the result is quite… mediocre, it bears repeating.

Of course, that’s usually the fate of Netflix with its action output: the bad abounds, the good is scarce, and they still don’t get anything memorable no matter how much money they spend. Personally, before The invisible Man I would recommend the above Red alert oh Tyler Rakebut also 6 in the shadows and, if you urge me, kate. That said, doing a session on the couch is enough. Too bad that with such a display of means it is reduced to a forgettable pastime.
