Thus, the story of “The Wages of Fear” takes place in the middle of the desert, near a refugee camp, an oil well goes up in flames, directly threatening the lives of the population. The responsible company takes urgent measures, sending experts to the location. They conclude that there is only one solution to avoid an imminent catastrophe: detonate the well with nitroglycerin within a maximum period of 24 hours.

In this sense, using a very large offer, a special team accepts the challenge of this dangerous mission. They have to travel 800 km in two vehicles loaded with 200 kg of explosives. With less than 20 hours to reach the shaft, they face significant challenges, including hostile areas controlled by armed rebels, minefields and rugged terrain.


WHAT DO THE CRITICIANS SAY?

Without ‘past the tongue’, the Collider, decimated this remake of “The Wages of Fear”! “A disaster even greater than anyone could imagine […] it’s nothing more than an empty and blatantly stupid approximation of an action film. Neither exciting nor tense, it’s simply dead on arrival“, it can be read. Also on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, it still has just 20% approval among the public.
