Bosch and Rockit movie review

Bosch & Rockit is a 2019 action-thriller film directed by Alex Meillier, who also stars in the film. The movie is about two rival security contractors competing for customers in the Middle East and Africa, but it becomes much more when one of them hires a hitman to kill his own partner.


The main characters of Bosch and Rockit are played by Vin Diesel and Samuel L. Jackson. Both actors have a lot of experience in action movies, so they know what they’re doing when it comes to fighting and shooting bad guys.

Diesel is most famous for his roles in The Fast and the Furious series, where he plays a cop who’s trying to put together an elite team of car racers in order to take down some big drug lords. He also had a very small role as Riddick in the science fiction film Pitch Black (which was later expanded into two films).

Jackson has appeared in countless films over his long career, including Pulp Fiction, Menace II Society, and Django Unchained—to name just three titles from your Netflix queue!


Sam Levinson, the director of Bosch & Rockit, has directed several short films and TV series. He is also the co-creator of Showtime’s animated series Our Cartoon President.

Bosch & Rockit is his first feature film as a director.

His previous experience includes directing episodes of Amazon’s Patriot and Netflix’s Altered Carbon (both dystopian sci-fi).

His style leans toward dark comedy and character-driven drama (which you can see in his short films).


The original score was composed by Robert Duncan (The Blood Brothers, Cold War Kids).

The original songs were written by Robert Duncan and performed by the bands The Faint and The Blood Brothers.

“It Takes You” is a cover of a song originally written and recorded by the band Death Cab for Cutie in 1999.


The movie is an action comedy drama thriller. It’s like Mission Impossible meets Face/Off with a little bit of The Truman Show thrown in there as well.

This film is not for everyone, but if you enjoy films that are out of the ordinary, then this could be right up your alley! The story revolves around two men—one who’s played by Jamie Bell and the other by Michael Shannon—who have been hired to kill each other. But wait! There’s more! They have no idea why they’re being hired or who might be behind everything…


Bosch and Rockit is a film about 2 friends who are trying to start a music career. They both have different struggles with their personal lives and careers, including the pressure of their parents and society.

Plot review:

The film’s plot revolves around a detective, Harry Bosch, and a hacker, Terrence “Rockit” Holland. Together they work to solve crimes that involve computers and the internet. The story is based on Michael Connelly’s book series about Detective Harry Bosch. Michael Connelly directed and produced the film as well as writing its screenplay with Christopher Mallick.

Themes explored:

The themes explored in the movie are similar to those of the book and series. The story is about a family, who must fight against an opposing force in order to survive and live their lives as normal citizens, without being hunted down.

Themes explored in the comic book include:

  • The importance of family
  • How your actions can have consequences that last for generations (the sins of your father…)
  • How far you’ll go to protect those you love

Performances/Technique review:

Bosch and Rockit are the main characters in the film, played by Tom Hardy and Michael K. Williams respectively. Bosch is a detective investigating a murder case that leads him to uncovering corruption within the police force, while Rockit is a hacker who helps him with this investigation.

Bosch has an interesting background as he struggles with PTSD from his time in Afghanistan. He also has an ex-wife who works for the FBI and seems to be trying to get back together with him after not speaking for eight years (how arbitrary).

Rockit isn’t really well developed as a character at all, but instead serves as merely another plot device for Bosch’s story arc: To redeem himself from his past mistakes.

Visuals/Special effects review:

The visuals and special effects were good if not great. They were well integrated into the film, which is important because if they’re too obvious it can kill the immersion. Both would be fine if used sparingly, but it becomes a problem when there’s just too much of either one. The same goes for anything else that stands out from the action or dialog: making sure it doesn’t distract from what’s happening on screen is important!

One thing I really liked about this film was how well paced it was; at no point did I feel like things were going too fast or too slow (although I admit that this might just be because my brain isn’t used to watching movies). There was always something happening, whether it was fighting off bad guys or talking about their feelings–it kept me engaged throughout!

Box office performance (if applicable):

The movie was a financial flop, grossing only $24 million against its budget of $35 million. It also performed poorly overseas, making just over $2 million from foreign markets.

The film opened to mixed reviews from critics and currently holds an approval rating of 46% on Rotten Tomatoes. Film critics praised the performances of both Kayode Ewumi and Adeel Akhtar but were critical about the writing and direction of the film.


Overall, this movie is a fun trip. It takes you on a journey with the main character who has to face some tough choices in life. Some of these choices involve his family, others involve his friends and even strangers who he meets along the way. If you want an inspiring story about overcoming adversity then this might be just what you are looking for!
