If you like revenge movies this is okay. Blake Lively is trying something different but she is seen here. The real treat is seeing her character go through the movie. Like’A Simple Favor’ a nice film for her to be in

The Rhythm Section is very much the slow burn. There is much action in it but not to the extent of big Blockbuster movies. Like I felt with Gemini Man, The Rhythm Section would have benefited greatly from being a series rather than a movie. There was just so much to explore and enjoy including the performances of Blake Lively and Jude Law. They were really good! It's a shame that this movie won't get the accolades it deserves.

Most of the movie was her training, the really intense or interesting parts were just the last 30mins! Disappointing!

Fortunately, there's Lively, adopting a convincing British accent, who almost, but not quite, manages to infuse the convoluted goings-on with enough gravitas to make them convincing.

Like the book, Reed Morano’s film is long on atmosphere and short on the kind of detail a spy thriller needs to be credible.

The Rhythm Section takes well-worn genre material and removes all the substance and ingenuity, leaving behind only an undeveloped plot, a blank main character, and a sense of gravitas that is entirely unearned.
