Joe Carnahan's Boss Level offers a premise we've seen countless times before, a retired special forces soldier tries to escape a never-ending time loop that results in his death. It's a premise that many have understandably got tired of. Yet I love it, time and time again these storylines have proven to be some of my favourites with Palm Springs, Edge of Tomorrow and Source Code being some of the best of the decade. Now Boss Level has come to join them. Throwing you straight into the action, offering an immense about of fun and some pretty enjoyable kills.
This is Grillo’s film to carry, and he pulls it off with a combination of brute force and light charm that…
A movie that understands the immense potential for enormous satisfaction that the Groundhog Day premise provides, and leans all the way into that aspect. It smartly turns the central conceit of reliving the day on repeat - which is becoming strangely ubiquitous these days - into a hilarious procedural of endless attempts at infiltrating a strongly guarded I'M SO FUCKING DRUNK WHO CARES THIS MOVIE IS GOOD
Es ist ein bisschen tragisch: irgendwo, unter ganz viel Ungereimtheiten und Mittelmaß, versteckt sich in „Boss Level“ ein Film, der deutlich mehr als „nur okay“ ist. Ich mag das Zeitschleifen-Gimmick, weil es vielen Filmemachern ihre kreativsten Leistungen entlockt. Und „Boss Level“ hat gute Ansätze. Immer mal wieder, in einigen der charmant-humorigen Actionmontagen, den Charakterinteraktionen oder der zwar ungelenk aufgestülpten, aber dennoch wohligen Vater-Sohn-Plotline, blitzt hier was richtig Gutes auf.
Aber so richtig ersichtlich wird letztlich nicht, welche eigene Idee der Film nun hat. Täglich grüßt das Murmeltier, aber dieses Mal mit Kopfschüssen, Schwertfights und ganz viel „Motherfucker“-Machismo. Gut...kann man machen, reicht aber höchstens für „ja, nett - und sonst so?“
Und sonst so ist da leider auch viel Murks: mit…

Rewatch Review: Joe Carnahan's 'Boss Level' is damn good fun and taps into the idea of living out an action-packed videogame in as grounded and exciting a fashion as possible. Frank Grillo shines in a role that seems tailor made for him, the action sequences are very exciting, and the comedy is weaved into it all so expertly that it's tough not to find yourself laughing at so many lines and moments of deadly slapstick. This one's really enjoyable and played just as nicely with this repeat viewing.
Surprise, surprise, cheap glib macho dogshit from Joe Carnahan. The only thing good about this is that it's somehow not as odious as STRETCH.
A retired special forces officer is trapped in a never ending time loop on the day of his death.
Joe Carnahan is attempting to offer up his fresh spin on what feels like an overly familiar concept. I say that with hesitation at this point because it does feel like recent efforts have proven me wrong. From The Map of Tiny Perfect Things to Palm Springs, the idea of being stuck in the same day over and over keeps working for me. Maybe this is just secretly my favorite genre, but it could also be that these filmmakers keep providing entertaining rides. This movie was pure entertainment, and it turned out…
A better than average sci-fi actioner. Grillo and Watts were great (and actually have decent chemistry together) but I wasn't feeling Gibson somehow.
I don't watch a whole lot of contemporary movies so when I do, I always have to get used to the digital artificialness and all the CGI (most of the explosions are computer generated and many of the gunfights are enhanced.)
It's not too original but it's still entertaining.
Frank Grillo is the Boss!!
Boss Level is the most Grillo of any Frank Grillo movie I’ve ever seen. He is in almost every scene. You get to watch him die over 150 times because Boss Level is the action version of Groundhog Day.
With so much focus on Grillo, the supporting players don’t have a lot of opportunities to make an impact. However, Mel Gibson does a lot with his limited time on screen. He even makes fun of himself. In fact, his character is probably based on an exaggerated version of The Real Mel Gibson.
Overall, Boss Level is action done right. It has a lot of action, gore and some comedy thrown in. It is a Joe Carnahan film that’s more Smokin’ Aces than The Grey. Recommended to all my action junkies.
Each morning a man comes for Frank Grillo,
Attacking him as he wakes on his pillow.
With all the attempts,
It'll start to make sense,
So he'll learn to go in for the kill-o.
Another movie that I only knew of its existence because of people in here logging it and reviewing it. The reception though was a bit lukewarm, so I didn’t know what to make of it. However, someone mentioned Michelle Yeoh, Ken Jeong and Mel Gibson was in here, so that finally lead me to look for this and watch it ASAP.
And first of all, can we talk about the fact Moviepass will never die, once you think it has died, it pops up in the form of a countdown that all the sudden doesn’t go nowhere or the opening company credits in a movie. I guess its clear they are the true parasites.
Moving on to the movie, this…

Why do I love Frank Grillo so much?
Every day you wake up and people immediately attempt to kill you and you have no idea why... now you have to master the day like a boss level. There are a lot of time loop movies so it's difficult to stand out and find your own spin on the trend but I think Boss Level does a decent job. The cast is pretty great with Grillo feeling so natural in the action lead. The science fiction elements are fun and I was invested in the mystery for the majority of the film. It's a very watchable film.
Recommended to fans of fun but dumb action flicks.
”I mean this whole thing’s just so cobbled together”
Well, ground my hogs, it’s another time loop movie!
This one kicks off with some cheesy manic fun that really captures the video game aspects of time looping. Frank Grillo is great as the cavalier captain of chaos and Joe Carnahan is having a giddy good time with his assassination freak squad.
However, it tries way too hard to make sense of non-sense science, and completely overreaches for emotional punches that it was never going achieve. All of which bogs down the fun and seems to bring time itself to a grinding halt.
If they’d simply gone for a carefree Shoot ’Em Up attitude, this movie would’ve been truly killer.
”Why do you like this game so much?”
“There’s a lot of people that chase you and you get to kill them.”
Above my expectations!! This movie knows what it is and it does what it needs to do.
This is cheesy schlock. Groundhog day but with shoe horned video game references and standard action violence. But it seems occasionally self aware and isn't too overindulgent. Also i didnt know mel gibson was still in movies and would have probs skipped this if i knew he was in this beforehand.
And that crush that I developed for Frank Grillo in Point Blank has intensified while watching this movie.
Boss Level is a combination of Groundhog Day and your favorite shoot-em-up video game. Frank Grillo is insanely charismatic and the pacing of the film flies by with all the action set pieces. It’s a fun watch and one of my favorite movies of 2021.
I want to see the version where Andy Sandberg stars in this and Frank Grillo stars in Palm Springs
Gotta love a classic time loop movie where the main character knows everything that’s gonna happen. Not sure if this was a low budget movie or not, but regardless it was pretty entertaining.
Both the same and the exact opposite of Netflix's 'The Old Guard' in respect to how it approached its soundtrack.
The music's just as frequent and cranked up just as loud, but this time it was killer instead of exceedingly awful.
Frank Grillo is a fucking star.
Geiler Streifen. Macht richtig bock!
Despite the over saturation of video game and time loop movies, this one proved more fun than most, even with Mad Mel in a major role.
To be honest this film was better than I expected. It wasn’t the same awful action sci-fi crap like other movies. Think of it like this: Groundhog Day meets John Wick, that’s the best way to describe this film. One thing that bothered me a lot was the CGI. The cgi was very bad. Explosions and such looked very unrealistic and it just looked like they used an app called ”action movie epic editor” to make some of the effects, which obviously isn’t a good sign. The performances were pretty mediocre, and the plot was meh. This movie was very enjoyable though. It had very fun action moments and it was fun to follow. Characters were what you’d expect, so i’m not going to get into them. I’d recommend this film if you find it for free and are just bored.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
It’s like every other Groundhog Day scenario, but fun and charming with its humor and violence. Will Sasso and Mel Gibson is a surprisingly great duo. Awesome group of quirky assassins. Not sure I got the nazi connection to everything that they were making.
