Is it just me, or does Vin Diesel play the “reluctant hero” in just about every single film. Everything from his breakout performance as the hard-nosed street racer thief who just wanted to find inner peace in The Fast and the Furious to the ruthless anti-hero in xXx. Every part this guy takes must have the exact same character arc — it would be annoying, if this new teaser trailer for Babylon AD didn’t look as good as it does. In fact, considering the fact that it is directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, whose work on Gothika wasn’t spectacular, but was at least visually interesting, this film has just gone up a notch to “wait and see” status in my book. That is somewhere in between “I will see it because I have to” and “I am intrigued.” Not bad for a Vin Diesel movie.
