Mayhem was a great and fun movie to watch. Steven Yeun and Samara Weaving were great together. It was bloody, violent, and brutal, you know, the things you want to see on a Friday night.
The structure of the movie was a lot like a video game, where the heroes start at the bottom and fight their way up through the different levels of bad guys to confront the different bosses. There was even a side quest when one of the bosses didn’t yield the goods our heroes needed.
I have read that the movie is supposed to represent the anger a lot of us felt when Trump was elected President. And maybe that’s what Joe Lynch and Matias Caruso intended. But I felt like it was a commentary to big corporations treating their employees as a commodity and not as people. The only thing they care about is their bottom line, the only time people matter to them is when they’re affecting their money.
Again, it was a great and fun movie. I would watch it again.
