Release Date: February 23, 2021

Run Time: 2 hours & 23 minutes

Reviewed By: Adam

After a violent home invasion leaves mild-mannered husband Noah (Matt Theo) in a coma and his wife Madeline (Hayley Beveridge) deeply traumatised, Noah awakens to find out that one of the attackers is still on the loose. As Noah and the nearly-despondent Madeline try to move on with their lives, Madeline spots the attacker, opening up a twisted tale of brutal revenge where all isn’t as it seems. Along the way, a scarred and seasoned Detective John Bennett (Richard Norton) fights his own inner demons whilst trying to solve the crime.

Rage, more like Age… am I right!? Because that’s what I did during this nearly two and a half hour flick.

I mean, in all honesty Rage wasn’t that bad. I actually did enjoy it. However, my biggest beef is the length (that’s what she said). There’s no reason for this to be as long as it was. It took away from the overall entertainment of the film because if it was a jam packed hour and a half, it would’ve been much more enjoyable.

The story was very well written and the acting was pretty decent, but these days it almost feels like a chore to watch a movie that’s two and a half hours long… unless it’s Avengers: End Game.

If you have time to kill, Rage is now available on all major VOD platforms.

Reel ROB Rating: 6.25 out of 10 stars
