The meaning of «wrath of man»

Wrath of Man is a 2021 action thriller heist film directed by Guy Ritchie, from a script he co-wrote with Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies, and is loosely based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck by Nicolas Boukhrief.[6] It is Ritchie's fourth directorial collaboration with lead actor Jason Statham, and first since Revolver (2005). Statham stars as H, a new cash truck driver in Los Angeles whose thwarting of a robbery leads to his skillset with guns and mysterious past being questioned. Holt McCallany, Jeffrey Donovan, Chris Reilly, Josh Hartnett, Laz Alonso, Raúl Castillo, DeObia Oparei, Eddie Marsan, and Scott Eastwood also star.

Wrath of Man was released in several countries on April 22, 2021, and in the United States on May 7. The film has grossed $104 million worldwide and received mixed reviews from critics upon release, who praised Ritchie's direction and the action sequences but criticized the dialogue and pacing.

The movie is separated into four parts, each circling back to one main event that sets off a chain reaction.

An armored truck is robbed by heavily armed men dressed as construction workers. Two guards and a civilian bystander are killed during the robbery. Five months after the robbery, a mysterious man named Patrick Hill (Statham) applies to Fortico Security. In his interview, his soon-to-be superior, Terry (Marsan), commends him for his references and warns him of the fatal robbery. Hill is then introduced to the company trainer Haiden (McCallany), known as "Bullet," who nicknames him "H" and oversees his training and tests. Hill passes the tests, meeting the bare minimum requirements, and gets off to a rocky start with his new colleagues, including Dave "Boy Sweat" (Hartnett) and Dana Curtis, the only female guard. On his first official day, Hill, Boy Sweat, and Bullet are assigned to the truck. While driving to the pickup, Boy Sweat tells Hill more about the robbery, revealing that he was supposed to drive the vehicle but that day had called in sick.

After the pickup, Bullet is taken hostage by gunmen. The robbers radio Dave and Hill and demand the $2 million left in their truck. Boy Sweat panics, trying to remember what protocol is in this situation, ultimately determining they should drive away without Bullet. Hill convinces him to comply and try to save "Bullet." Hill exits the truck and quickly disposes of the gunmen with expert marksmanship, to the awe of Boy Sweat and Bullet. The police investigators assigned to the robbery question Hill about why his shooting abilities differ from his training scores, which he says is due to the situation heightening his senses. The investigators ask him to watch security footage of the previously mentioned robbery to see if he thinks the two crimes are connected. Hill says there is no connection and is released. Terry tries to give Hill desk duty for a month in case of PTSD. However, the CEO of Fortico comes to personally thank Hill, telling Terry he should continue working in the field and get a promotion. The police investigators later identify Hill to their superior, FBI Agent King (Garcia), as someone the Bureau had been looking for 25 years. King tells them to let Hill off the hook and "let the painter paint." An associate subsequently visits Hill in his hotel room and delivers him Fortico employee files, Dana Curtis' family pictures, and an autopsy report. In a later pickup with just Hill and Bullet, the truck is attacked again. The robbers flood the armored truck with tear gas, forcing Hill to exit the vehicle. As soon as the robbers see Hill's face, they quickly retreat. Terry doesn't believe his story, thinking he is a psychopath, but the Fortico CEO commends Hill again. Hill, now a hero at work, sleeps with Dana and then holds her at gunpoint to ask her about a $125,000 cash stash he finds. She claims she stole money once from a liquor store for retirement savings. Hill spares her life but threatens further repercussions if he learns she is withholding other information.
