I’m seeing Frank Grillo more than I thought I would, I think I first noticed him in the Captain America movies where he played Crossbones, then he was in a much beloved Purge film, then it seemed like every film he made that hadn’t been released yet started showing up on Netflix and Amazon Prime. I’ve seen the same thing happen with Vin Diesel and The Rock, it’s just funny to see it happening again where an actor gets a little heat then suddenly you’re seeing a 20 years version of them in a film about finding true love while adopting cats.
Wheelman takes place in a single car for 90% of the film, then the rest is spent in another (smaller) car. It takes an incredible skills set on both the director and the actors to be able to do these types of films, some of them work and some of them don’t. Wheelman falls into the “it works” camp luckily, if only because of the supporting crew that comes and goes from the car’s cabin.
