MOVIE REVIEW: Wimbledon - Men's Final (2018) 'Wimbledon: Men's Final' is the much-anticipated sports drama thriller, directed by British auteur, James Keothavong. Winner of the 'Gold Badge Chair' and having been at the helm of a number of big budget blockbuster productions in France, Australia and Argentina over the last 20 years, Keothavong is a perfect candidate for the director's chair.
The sparsely scripted story follows Novak and Kevin, two aggressive mercenaries with years of elite training, whose bitter rivalry results in a showdown in London town. Hailing from Serbia and South Africa respectively, the film revolves around a single location as the two take potshots at each other in an attempt to complete a do-or-die mission and scoop a massive contract kill. Both armed with high tech gear and plenty of fire power, the sharpshooters find themselves trapped in a public space as a deadly shoot out scenario plays out with onlookers taking cover around them.
Novak Djokovic (Kissing) is a seasoned and award-winning performer, who has had a terrific run of form lately, after recovering from several injuries and some personal difficulties. Through eagle-eyed precision, he maintained composure and brought his A-game to round off an excellent performance. Despite some nerve-wracking moments and a few jitters when it came to overall consistency, his commitment to the craft eventually won the day.
Anderson, standing at 6.8 feet is no slouch and while his opening gambit was less than convincing, he made a remarkable recovery in the third act to save face and deliver a respectable performance that saw him stealing a number of scenes. Anderson's delivered several solid performances in recent memory, including a brilliant turn opposite screen veteran, Roger Federer. While ultimately playing underdog to Djokovic, his co-lead performance was memorable and as a South African, his efforts will be etched on the minds of his fellow countrymen for years to come.
