Verdict on Blood & Gold
Blood & Gold is an action comedy taking us into the later days of World War II. The SS are looking to get all their treasures before the war ends and are turning on their own. This time they will find themselves in a deadly battle against a man and woman who want to take a stand against them.
The movie is one that doesn’t hold back on the over-the-top action. It plays perfectly into the action comedy it wants to present. Showing us the over-the-top figures running the military. When it comes to the people fighting back, we see how important it is to them to make sure they win. This ends up being a wild ride of action that doesn’t hold back on anything.
Where to Watch: Blood & Gold is available to watch on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts – Blood & Gold is a wildly over-the-top action movie.
