NOT a Frank Grillo picture, he only has got a small supporting role.
I didnt expect much from this movie, but I started watching it anyway because of the presence of Frank Grillo, who usually only stars in the better B-movies, but not this time around…
The bad: this is amateur night. It has got the look and feel of a cheaply produced television production and everything you can think of is below average.
Starting with a TON of terrible supporting actors. And the leading actors are void of any charisma. Frank Grillo only stars in this picture for a few minutes in a small supporting role.
Not any good then? I can say with 100% certainty that this movie aint any good whatsoever.
Low expecations did not make it better.
I went in knowing or at least suspecting this was not going to a blockbuster. Being Dutch I of course wanted to see Rico’s first feature performance.
What I find most off putting is the accents of the actors. If one has to protray an American or other native Englsh speaking national, they should at least have the ability to speak the languange in the correct accent. Or just let them speak their own languange in certain scenes and not pretend to let them be American.
The action editing here and there was incoherant. In the fist action scene it was hard to follow who was who. The cinematography was ok though but I don’t understand the blue darkening filter in the end scene. It was clearly day time.. Pacing was slow and in the slow moments I was checking my instagram feed more than the movie. I didn’t mind the score too much.
The plot is failrly standard, nothing special. Rico’s acting was actually not as bad as I feared but obviously not A-list level yet. The dialogues were pretty crappy however.
Not sure what Frank Grillo was doing in this movie but he has had his hits and misses to be honest. His acting is fine and what you would expect from him. The rest of the acting on point for… B-movies.
All in all it’s one of these straight to DVD movies.
