In fact, he won an Academy Award for his work in The Godfather Part III. He also played Cuban President Fidel Castro in 1992’s The Night Of The Iguana and was nominated for a Golden Globe award. He then followed that up with a series of gritty, award-winning performances in films like Dirty Dancing and When A Man Loves A Woman.
In Wrath of Man, FBI agent King (Andy García) is out for revenge after his wife and daughter are killed in a terrorist attack. He goes undercover to infiltrate a group of terrorists, but when he learns that they’re planning another attack, he has to stop them before it’s too late. With the help of his fellow agents, King races against the clock to stop the terrorists and prevent another tragedy. One of the hallmarks of Andy García’s body of work is his versatility as an actor. His ability to convey emotional range and nuance makes him equally compelling as action hero in Outpost 3, or heartbroken father in The Lost City; as corrupt cop Franco Baresi from Night Falls on Manhattan; grieving family man Bobby Mercer from Desperate Hours; or even Al Pacino’s trainer Johnny Dio from Righteous Kill.
In Wrath of Man, García brings all these facets together into one complicated character: Federal Bureau agent Bill King. A man pushed over the edge by tragedy and given a second chance at life by grief who finds himself ensnared in a shadowy world where good cannot defeat evil without great sacrifice.
Andy García’s Wrath of Man is a return to form for the action star, who hasn’t been in a good movie in years. He plays an FBI agent who is pushed to the brink by the death of his wife and child. The film is well-paced and exciting, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. However, some have criticized the film for its violence, which they feel is gratuitous and unnecessary. Still, this is an excellent thriller with one of Hollywood’s most underrated actors at the helm.
