Los Angeles (EFE). – Action movie has more suicide mission than facing Jason Statham? That’s why Latinos Laz Alonso and Raul Castillo found in “Man of Wrath”, Guy Ritchie’s new film, in which he challenged one of the deadliest stars in adrenaline-fueled cinema.
“I knew my character would be fatal …” Alonso joked in an interview that Statham’s fiction likes to be an enemy.
The Cuban-American actor added with a laugh, “But when you make films like this with Statham, you know it’s going to be hard work and the fights never end.”
“Man of Rage” will hit theaters in the United States on Friday the 7th and mark the reunion of director Guy Ritchie with actor Jason Statham, who signed the action film Whip, such as “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” (1998) or “Snatch” (2000).
Without the macabre and delirious humor that marked his early jobs, Richie tells the story of H (Statham) in “Chariots of Man”, a mysterious boy who starts working for an armored car company in Los Angeles .
In addition to Alonso and Castillo, Statham is cast in a small role by Josh Hartnett, Scott Eastwood, Nimah Elgar, Holt McCulney and Andy Garcia with this tale of cold revenge and violence.
Known for the acid superhero series “The Boys”, Alonso said Statham is an action figure because he is “something that is not normal, something that is not seen every day.”
“His face, his expressions are interesting. He has a way that he commands respect. And you know that when he throws the first fist, it’s going to be something serious, “he reflected.
Alonso is part of a group of criminals who have the misfortune to cross the path of Statham’s character, a gang in which Raul Castillo also plays.
The Mexican-American actor said that, after “Rath of Man” and working with figures such as Statham, he has “more respect” for action stars.
In addition, Castillo insisted that “hard work” is behind each sequence and that each scene must be fully coordinated to make it safe.
“It’s fun, but at the same time you have to stay focused,” the actor said, adding that “Army of the Dead” premieres this month under the command of Zack Snyder.
Upon learning that “Man of Wrath” would be Statham and Richie’s first film, because after “Revolver” (2005), Castillo knew that being involved in the project was unbelievable. But then she came to know that working with Richie was an exciting and demanding experience.
Mexican-born actor Raul Castillo shares his experience of filming with Guy Ritchie and what he mentions is that Richie suddenly changes dialogue and action sequences on the fly. Laz Alonso agreed to the point and assured that he never collaborated with the director with Ritchie’s style.
The two actors said that part of Richie’s magic is in his flamboyant, filthy, effortless and edgy style that makes his films feel “like real life”. “Man of Rage” will be released in theaters in the United States on Friday, October 7.
