The Man from Toronto

The Man from Toronto

Teddy (Kevin Hart), the protagonist of Netflix’s “The Man From Toronto,” is an irritating, motormouthed, underachieving idiot

Anyone who can spend more than ten minutes with him deserves a medal for patience. Director Patrick Hughes’ latest is both 112 minutes

and a hodgepodge of so many other movies that it becomes the most obnoxious of cinematic collages.

The signposts on this journey include the darkly comic hitman thriller,

the goofy loser trying to prove himself underdog flick, the stand-up comedian vanity project, the mistaken identity plot and the violent actioner

t’s the kind of venture that only strengthens my conspiracy theory that many Netflix films

are created solely to be played in the background while viewers fold laundry or vacuum the cat hair off their IKEA furniture

You could walk away from this movie every ten minutes and not miss anything when you returned.

Baldheaded Woody Harrelson plays the titular Torontonian, a very effective hitman whose vicious reputation for torturing precedes him
