According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon announced that ‘Rent Killer’ became the biggest release of a feature film on the platform, revealing that more than 50 million of viewers have watched the film since its release on March 21.

However, there are no details on how these numbers were counted, such as whether an account watching one minute of the film would count towards the 50 million count, or whether viewing was calculated in the same way as on Netflix and Disney+ , which divide the length of a film by the total number of viewers.

“The groundbreaking and successful release of ‘Slayer’ is a testament to the hard work and commitment of the entire ‘Slayer’ production team and the film’s cast led by the phenomenal Jake Gyllenhaal.”he said Jennifer Salkehead of Amazon MGM Studios. “It’s great to see the film taking off with both fans of the iconic original and a strong turnout from new audiences.”

‘Rent Killer’ is now available on Prime Video.

In the plot, Gyllenhaal stars as a former UFC fighter who takes a job as a bouncer at a tavern in the Florida Keys, only to discover that this paradise isn’t all it seems.

Check out the main reactions:

“Perhaps the film’s biggest crime is the lack of fighting,” Little White Lies

“It’s not that bad of a film, but an inexplicable example of a franchise that doesn’t deserve to be revisited. Why would you want to remake and modernize a film so embedded in its specific time and aesthetic?” Jason Bailey

“It lacks personality and sex appeal, which is exactly what a remake of a Patrick Swayze classic shouldn’t do.”, Matthew Pejkovic

“Very well led by the director Doug Limancleverly scripted and boasting a wonderfully original take on the action hero archetype, this new ‘Hired Killer’ It’s a total riot… In the good sense of the term.” – Empire

Jake Gyllenhaal delivers a fun performance that ranges from charming to menacing, but even that gets lost in the chaos of a film that needed to be sweaty, grounded, and urgent to work, but which becomes increasingly like something you’d watch on a Saturday morning. ” –

“Although ‘Rent Killer‘ is probably measured by the intensity of their struggles, the plot manages to shape a surprisingly grounded portrait of everyday Florida.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“The new ‘Hire Killer‘ is a fitting update to its predecessor’s legacy. Not because it’s better, or even because it’s so similar, but because it moves with the same unconscious stupidity that fueled so many of the ’80s blockbusters we remember so fondly.” – IndieWire

“This version probably won’t have the lasting reputation that the 80s version had. It’s fun enough to pass the time, but it lacks that sparkle that the classic has. – Next Best Picture
