“Freelance” struggles to earn its title as a movie, offering little beyond a basic plot and recognizable faces. Despite boasting a $40 million budget, the film feels like a rushed attempt to meet VOD and theater release quotas. Pierre Morel’s direction lacks the energy and creativity seen in his earlier works, reducing the film to a forgettable action-comedy background.
John Cena assumes the role of Mason Pettits, a former special ops soldier, partnered with journalist Claire Wellington (Brie) on a mission set in the fictional country of Paldonia. Unfortunately, the film lacks substance—no romance, no comedy, and no memorable action sequences. The chemistry between Cena and Brie, usually reliable, fails to elevate the lackluster narrative. “Freelance” falls short of the expected sparks and depth, leaving audiences with a hollow cinematic experience.
