A cliche Mickey Rourke home invasion thriller kinda kills him on streaming
It’s not a good day to stay home and relax.
Who knew Mickey Rourke could have a movie at the top of the streaming charts in 2023? According to Flix Patrol, his film The Commando is now number one in the Hulu charts, ahead of current hits like Everything Everywhere All at Once, Spider-Man: No Way Home or Elvis.
The Commando tells the story of a DEA agent, James Baker (Michael Jai White), who must defend his family from a home invasion. The guy trying to get in is Johnny (Mickey Rourke), a freed convict who hid millions of dollars in the agent’s house before going to jail.
Fight scenes, gore and gunfights seem to be the calling card of this action crime thriller, which could be an exciting easy-to-watch thing as the film also hits big when streamed in countries as diverse as Belize, Brazil or Austria.
Surprisingly for a film at the top of the streaming charts, audiences and critics alike didn’t think highly of The Commando. It has a miserable 22% viewership on Rotten Tomatoes, and the Guardian critic who saw it dismissed it for containing a number of egregious implausibility and clichés.
The film is directed by Asif Akbar (Morbid Stories) and stars Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight), Jeff Fahey (Lost), Brendan Fehr (Roswell) and Noa Maes (Into America’s). Wild).
You can watch The Commando on Hulu, Starz, and DirectTV, and tell us in the comments below if it’s as bad as people say it is, or if it has some redeeming qualities.
