A good and well deserved "message from the king"
4 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

"Message from the king" have to be one of the best payback movies ever made. This movie reminds me a little of "Man on fire" and "Drive". Its a dark thriller and shows LA in a way none else does. The story line is absolutely magnificent and the acting as well. This is a movie that deserves a much better rating and meta score. If you are looking for a good thriller/action movie.....this is absolutely one to watch!!
