The Beekeeper

I wanted to see David Ayer's The Beekeeper in theaters, sold on the action-packed trailer and as a fan of Jason Statham's work.

I'm glad I saved my money.

Now, it's not a terrible film, but it's rough enough that it had me groaning and/or rolling my eyes through most of it. To summarize without spoiling anything, it's 105 minutes of how an older person must think crypto call center scams are run, and what they would do if it was still possible to go John Rambo on all the whippersnappers for revenge. There were so many "hello, fellow kids" moments that I was cringing out of my chair. I'm certain it wasn't ironic. Also, I have this weird craving for a Twinkie...

On the plus side, it was nice to see Mrs. Huxtable working again.
