Vanguard (2020)

Covert security company Vanguard is the last hope of survival for an accountant after he is targeted by the world's deadliest mercenary organization.

Though it seems to be more a love story between an environmentalist (female) and Vanguard employee (male) than it's about that accountant.

Jackie Chan's there on the side throughout, along with various other Vanguard employees (don't know who the girl was but props! Favorite one) and other collaborators and/or adversaries.

But special effect car chases? Not a fan. Not of special effect animals either. Special effect cyborg bees...? A little more acceptable.

This movie really reminded me of Kung Fu Yoga, which was fun, but there too all the CGI just brings it down so much for me. I love the sceneries, and some of the setups are spectacular - the fortress firefight in particular was awesome - I wish I could rate this higher overall!

I love that Jackie's still making stuff, but he just ain't in his heyday anymore. The budget's there. The young talent is there - it's admirable how be brings 'em in and lets them showcase their skills. I just wish the authenticity was too. The after-credit scenes feel like what I wish the movie felt like, like who knew Jackie really almost drowned when he was pinned under that Jet Ski?! You don't get the impression he was really in danger in the movie.

Wish they'd spent their budget differently. Focused on the real.

 rated 3.5/5: not bad at all
