Collide Review

One of the underrated movies of 2017 in my opinion is Collide, with acting talent such as Ben Kingsley and Anthony Hopkins trying to battle for the most eccentric villain in scenes makes for such an interesting power dynamic. If that does not draw you in, then imagine…

One of the underrated movies of 2017 in my opinion is Collide, with acting talent such as Ben Kingsley and Anthony Hopkins trying to battle for the most eccentric villain in scenes makes for such an interesting power dynamic. If that does not draw you in, then imagine a combination of Taken and Transporter as the lead frantically juggles an assortment of vehicles evading criminals through Germany.

Casey Stein (Nicholas Hoult) agrees to hijack a shipment of cocaine for his old boss (Ben Kingsley) in return for money to pay for his girlfriend Juliette’s (Felicity Jones) transplant. Unfortunately, those drugs belong to Hagen Kahl (Anthony Hopkins), Germany’s most powerful Kingpin. Kahl seeks revenge by kidnapping Juliette and sending his goons after Stein. Casey must now race against time in a desperate attempt to save the woman he loves.

Apart from the excellent crime kingpins played by top actors the movie also offers up a hipster hitman with a respectable beard. I really enjoyed it as it came out of nowhere for me and still had me riveted. It does not take itself too seriously and the story goes from a heist movie to elaborate car chases to high street gun battles to a love story, it’s crazy but if Grand Theft Auto was a movie this would be it. I would rather watch a movie that’s not overly hyped and delivers than an overhyped movie that can’t fail but still disappoints fans. You just can’t look away as Casey goes from one impossible situation to the next, loved it and recommend anyone to watch it.
