    The Empty Man

    ★★★★½

    Shot back in 2017 and shelved during a studio merger, this was briefly dumped into U.S. cinemas in the midst of the Covid pandemic, and appears to have ended up on streaming services only here in the UK, with no theatrical or physical release that I'm aware of.

So the decision to develop the story in this eagerly-awaited sequel to a far more expansive narrative based around an undercover infiltration of the underworld, and the duplicity and dealings of gangland politics and rivalry, was always going to deliver a different, far broader kind of film. As a result The Raid 2, weighing in at a…
