Criticism of The Wasp Network: a surprising disappointment that moves between different genres in a puzzling way

The wasp network arrives at Netflix and here we leave you our criticism.

Havana, early 1990s. René González, a Cuban pilot, steals a plane and flees Cuba, leaving behind his daughter and his beloved wife. In Miami begins a new life full of opportunities away from communism, like other Cuban deserters. All of them initiate a spy network where their mission is to infiltrate violent anti-Castro organizations responsible for the terrorist attacks on the island. This is the premise of The Wasp Network.

The wasp network premieres in Netflix Spain after its cancellation in movie theaters due to the coronavirus crisis. As it is a production of the platform itself, they have been forced to make a forced change of plans after successfully debuting at the last Venice and San Sebastian Festival. Olivier Assayas, director and screenwriter of the film, tells us in a mediocre way a true, incoherent and somewhat perplexing story. The meticulous and sublime aerial shots play in his favor, which manages to bring great freshness and truth to the story.

Penélope Cruz and Édgar Ramírez lead the cast in a unique way. Neither of them manages to shine as the public expected with a current performance without captivating the viewer. Instead, Ana de Armas with her fragile and minuscule role debunks all the principals with a devastating Margarita. Also noteworthy is the voice of the narrator who leads us in this complicated and convoluted plot in a more than remarkable way.

The wasp network

A script that destroys the entire film …

Assayas achieves a baffling script with numerous facts, characters, and cross-plots. It remains halfway between fiction and reality due to the way of narrating where it shines in a few moments without captivating. It is a film with great and overwhelming locations, but also an endless mess of comings and goings in all aspects. It is not distinguished if it intends to entertain or confuse the database.

The Wasp Network is a film of interest to the viewer who came in search of entertainment and is positioned as the director's least instigating film. It is a surprising disappointment where he teaches that greats can also fail and that to succeed you don't need to have either the best director or the best cast.
