Podcast: Vanquish (2021)

Direct download.

What is Vanquish (2021)? Is it an action film? Is it a money laundering scheme? Is it a sweetheart deal with some new Uzbekistani streaming service? Whatever is is, it isn’t good.

Retired hero cop Damon (Morgan Freeman) was paralyzed in the line of duty and therefore Freeman does not have to stand up to leave the room throughout the entire movie.  He now lives in his giant glass mansion calling corrupt cops on the phone and scheming criminal deeds. He decides to “help” his ex-hitwoman caretaker Victoria (Ruby Rose) by kidnapping her sick daughter and making Victoria do five cash pickups in one night to get her back. However, not each pickup is what it seems. Is there some ulterior motive for his plan? Yes.

Some Notes:

  • Available for free (with ads) on IMDb TV.
  • In the episode, Nick says that Spy Kids was shot on digital. This is incorrect. Spy Kids 2 and Spy Kids 3D were shot on digital, while Spy Kids was 35mm. We regret the error.
  • For our zoomer fans who are unaware of pre-2017 memes, here's the full audio of the Christian Bale rant on the set of Terminator Salvation.
