Zhao Xina's "Freelancer" Gets a 4/10 from IGN: A Disappointment with A-List Actors
The action comedy "Freelancer," starring John Cena, has hit theaters in North America, and IGN has given this film a mere 4 out of 10 rating.
"Freelancer" boasts impressive digital effects but lacks innovation in its action sequences, resulting in a missed opportunity to showcase the talents of its A-list cast.
In other projects, each actor in "Freelancer" could have better demonstrated their skills. John Cena's lead performance leaves viewers underwhelmed, and Alison Brie fails to win over the audience. Director Pierre Morel's uninspired work behind the scenes and the film's misleading title only draw the audience into a movie devoid of emotion and vitality. Even in the most intense gunfights, the film struggles to leave a lasting impression.
Fortunately, Paldonia is not a real place, sparing the audience from the negative legacy of "Freelancer." This film seems to fall short of its potential, leaving a sense of regret.
The latest installment of the classic action-comedy franchise 'Bad Boys,' titled 'Bad Boys 4,' has been officially scheduled for release on June 14, 2024, in North America.

The live-action film 'Barbie,' starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, is set to be released in Mainland China on July 21. Today, the movie released a behind-the-scenes featurette, showcasing various cast members discussing their production experiences. The image of John Cena, who guest stars as a 'Ken Merman,' was also unveiled. The stark contrast between Zhao Xina's blonde appearance and the familiar 'Barbie' is both significant and amusing. According to feedback from early screenings, Zhao Xina's portrayal of a merman in the film is described as 'hilarious.' The movie version of 'Barbie' sets the story in modern times, with the protagonist, Barbie, resembling a contemporary version of 'Mary Poppins,' utilizing her personal and professional skills to help others improve their lives. In addition to Barbie, her boyfriend Ken and her best friend play significant roles in the film. Sony hopes to create a series of 'Barbie' movies that not only appeal to young girls but also evoke nostalgic memories of childhood for adults who once played with Barbie dolls. ...
