The Beekeeper (2024, D: Ayer) -- S: Jason Statham




Expose the corruption. Protect the hive.

directed by David Ayer and starring Jason Statham. Only in theaters January 12.

In The Beekeeper, one man’s brutal campaign for vengeance takes on national stakes after he is revealed to be a former operative of a powerful and clandestine organization known as “Beekeepers.” Directed By: David Ayer Starring: Jason Statham, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Josh Hutcherson, Bobby Naderi, Minnie Driver, with Phylicia Rashad and Jeremy Irons Written By: Kurt Wimmer




Basically a Red Band trailer and it shows a lot.

Statham is a busy guy. 3 movies out in about 6 months.

David Ayer and Kurt Wimmer doing a film -- should be action packed to say the least.

One of those trailers I stopped in the middle, since it seems to show the movie. Looks like one of the better better Statham vehicles.

Yeah, this looks fun. But I agree the trailer shows too much. It's not a new problem, but it seems to have gotten much worse recently.

I guess I wasn't paying close attention to the trailer. It was only on the 2nd watch that I realized that he is not a literal beekeeper getting revenge for his scammed elderly neighbor. It still looks ridiculous.

Itís a good trailer.

I'm curious. Does anyone really like these Statham movies? They must make economic sense. seems like they are more his movies than the directors.

I enjoyed The Transporter. And the two Crank movies.

Have any of them been unique?

If Liam Neeson were to have made this film it would have been called The Apiarist.

I've once read the comment Jason Statham has never been in a good movie and never been in a bad movie either and while I would say Snatch is a good movie and In The Name of the King is a terrible movie, I'd say most of his movies are solid.
Wrath of Man and The Mechanic stand out to me.

The Bank Job is highly underrated and has no martial arts -- solid heist film there.

Early Access IMAX screenings start Saturday at 7pm. I got a ticket with a $5 off T-Mobile Atom tickets coupon from last week.

Next Tuesday T-Mobile is offering $5 tickets through Atom for the official January 12th release date.

Looks pretty badass. Hopefully this will make up for the disaster that was Expen4bles.

I'm kind of busy next weekend, so I grabbed a ticket for this tonight. It is surprisingly really well sold.

Here is my screening. This is a pretty decent amount of seats sold for a non big IP movie in an IMAX equivalent auditorium.

Re: The Beekeeper (2024, D: Ayer) -- S: Jason Statham

Just got back from seeing it. It was a pretty packed auditorium.

The action and fight scenes were great. Statham beating the shit out of all those bad guys was great.

My biggest issue was some of the supporting actors. The acting and dialogue was pretty cringy. Emmy Raver-Lampman who played an FBI agent and Phylicia Rashad’s daughter was pretty terrible. Zero believability as a credible FBI agent. So miscast. Someone like Joy Bryant would have been a better choice in my opinion.

But I had a pretty good time otherwise. I’d probably give this a 7 out of 10 and maybe a generous B- But I think this is almost certain going to get a Rotten score next week.

My theater gave a big applause as the credits rolled.

This was 100% the biggest issue with movie. Distractingly so.

Otherwise, if your a fan of Statham movies, you should be mostly pleased.

Cheesy fun, but the first part is better than the latter part. It's a throwback.

I already saw this last Saturday and the movie doesn't officially open until tonight. But, Ayer says in this interview he really wants to make a sequel.

My son and I just got back - heís going back to college tomorrow so it was a last hurrah.

Itís just stupid fun with some great, inventive fight choreography and kill sequences. They lean HARD into the bee metaphors and take everything very seriously and itís very fun to watch. Absolutely nothing is realistic and it gets downright preachy at times but we had a good time and theyíve definitely set up a part 2.
