Conor McGregor's Road House given shock rating as best films to watch in 2024 ranked

Conor McGregor's Road House given shock rating as best films to watch in 2024 ranked

The film was released on Amazon Prime earlier this month.

Conor McGregor's new film Road House has been snubbed by Rotten Tomatoes as the Amazon Prime exclusive was not included in the website's 'best films to watch in 2024' list.

The former two-weight UFC champion has ventured into Hollywood with his debut role in a modern adaptation of the classic 1980s action film featuring Patrick Swayze.

In this remake, Nightcrawler actor Jake Gyllenhaal shares the screen with McGregor. You can watch the trailer for Road House below.

In the updated rendition of the movie, Oscar-nominated Gyllenhaal portrays James Dalton, a former UFC fighter turned bouncer at a roadhouse in the Florida Keys.

His character faces off against Knox, a merciless gun-for-hire portrayed by McGregor.

The movie has received some unwanted press due to fan concern over McGregor, who appeared tired and struggled to get his words out in a recent interview.

The reporter who conducted the interview for Sports Illustrated, Robin Lundberg, has now spoken out.

"I did this interview. I was actually expecting to only talk to Jake when I went in. Conor was certainly cordial but I do hope everything is ok with him," Lundberg posted on X.

Directed by Doug Liman, the action-packed film has received varied reviews since its release with a 6.2 from IMDB and 63% from Rotten Tomatoes.
