There has never been a better time to be an aging action star. We are in a geriatric golden age; whether you’re looking at the reinvigorated over-the-top stardom of guys like Stallone and Schwarzenegger or the reinvention of guys like Liam Neeson, the silver screen has seen plenty of old guys shooting guns and blowing stuff up.
Apparently, Sean Penn decided he wanted to get in on some of that action despite not necessarily having a good understanding of what makes those movies work. “The Gunman” is the unfortunate result of that ill-informed decision.
