Hollywood Film – Wild Card (2014) Movie Review & Storyline:
Based on the novel ‘Heat’ by William Goldman, the celebrated writer in 1985, Wild Card is an upcoming film. Another adaptation of the novel was also made in 1986 with the same title- ‘Heat’. Wild Card is set to be screened in the USA screens in January 30, 2015. The film runs about one and a half hour (90 minutes) and produced by Steve Chasman and Jason Statham.
Wild Card is a crime drama rather than actions although actions are not in less in the movie. Jason Statham prefers actions rather than dialogues in most of his films, and even there are films that he has only four or five lines of dialogues. In ‘The Mechanic’, Jason Statham had only five lines of dialogues in the entire movie, but in the Wild Card, he is in the lead position and had to deliver lots of dialogues in line with his martial art exhibition.
To deliver the dialogues perfectly, Jason Statham memorized the words by heart to avoid any sort of weird situations. This is one of the dramatic movies by Statham rather than preferring his actions and personalities.
The screenplay is another one to be praised of. Composed by the famous screenplay writer William Goldman, the Wild Card is filled with thrill and dramatic moments in every seconds of its 90-minute long screening.
The suspense of the film is that Nick Wild is to run for his life as he was supportive to his friend and saved him from the beating of group of thugs. Still is unknown that he survived or not (in the film), but such occurrences are common in our real life that people fell in danger with the charges of saving or protecting others including helpless.
Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is an alcoholic and performs odd jobs to bear that cost, but owns the strong sense of judgment inside him. Thus, he moves ahead to protect the helpless friend endangering his own life and living (he had to lose his underworld jobs after the beating of the underworld boss’s son).
Film making testifies the use of global tools and instruments. Different locations of the USA have been used in the films and around US $ 30,000,000 have been spent so far for the film making.
Wild Card will be a test for Jason Statham in 2015 to prove himself as a dramatic artist rather than his ordinary roles of the Hollywood action boy.
