bad samaritan review

Are effing kidding me? The whole move was just so suspenseful. And if you are, you will certainly be disappointed with his performance. Stop the shoot … David Tennant in Bad Samaritan. He’s been a bad guy in the past but now he’ll be the good Samaritan. Some guy can clean remodel his house by himself in one night and not leave any trace? Bad Samaritan is a 2018 American horror-thriller film directed by Dean Devlin and written by Brandon Boyce. Finding Your Roots With Henry Louis Gates Jr. A tight little film which does a good job of living up to its bold premise, Bad Samaritan makes occasional slips but delivers, overall, a solid two hours of entertainment. One thing’s for sure: You won’t think of valeting your car the same way again. And that's just one of the complete nonsense plot complications that this movie is based on. 710067). I would give it 2.5 stars at best, and that is only because of the presence of David Tennant. Bad Samaritan plays like an unambitious episode of “Black Mirror,” low on techno-savvy but enhanced by the always-compelling David Tennant and Robert Sheehan, an Irish actor best known for his role on the British series “Misfits.” Read full review The debut director Dean Devlin clearly has Hitchcockian pretensions, even if the sleazy thrills he offers lunge closer towards torture porn. I give it 2 thumbs up. Playing a serial-killer-slash-women-hating-abductor. Sean abandons the burglary and blunders out with a muddled idea of helping her, calling the cops. Dean Devlin finally steps out from Roland Emmerich’s shadow with a tight, twisty little thriller.

As much as I love David Tennant (Broadchurch) 5 minutes in I couldn't tolerate the stupidity of the characters. Top subscription boxes – right to your door, © 1996-2020,, Inc. or its affiliates.

This movie proves the Oscar Wilde joke about how playing the piano "accurately" is over-rated as long as you play "with expression": you don't need to be technically accomplished to make a fun, unsound piece of pulp fiction. By devolving into unoriginal nonsense by the third act, the film is laid even lower by the fact that it actually had a lot going for it before completely falling apart. Ended up giving this movie a go because of the relatively good reviews, but boy was it disappointing. Aside from repeated flashbacks involving a wild horse, a gun, and an ambiguous murder, the movie offers precious little explanation for Erendreich’s proclivities, apart from the fact that they tie back to his childhood obsession with dressage.

No one gives a dull performance and the story is compelling enough to keep you hooked from beginning to end. Good, tense action-thriller that I enjoyed. Reviews Bad Samaritan Simon Abrams May 04, 2018. The film stars David Tennant and Robert Sheehan, with Carlito Olivero, Kerry Condon, and Jacqueline Byers in supporting roles. He’s out to save a mostly mute, tied-up woman while his sweetheart has been put on life support and then ignored. Banking heavily on the unconventional, almost-androgynous looks of its blue-eyed, ringlet-haired leading man, “Bad Samaritan” expects audiences to identify with an opportunistic hustler — and talented amateur photographer — who uses a Portland restaurant’s valet parking service to break into rich folks’ homes while they dine. Bad Samaritan has all the cleverness of a shovel to the head. It isn't exactly a good film, but it is weirdly charming, thanks to its creators' exuberant commitment to tacky ideas. Veering dangerously close to torture porn in places, “Bad Samaritan” evokes urban myths about an upper class so entitled that it hunts or enslaves people for its own amusement.

His only misstep is arguably Joseph LoDuca’s overblown score, which feels more suited to a Devlin/Emmerich blockbuster, and has a tendency to drown entire scenes in bombast.

These filmmakers keep on stacking bad ideas on top of each other until bombs, literal skeletons, and live, menacing people are leaping out of closets, premature graves, and convection ovens. As one of the consistently ineffectual law enforcement officers puts it, “So now, instead of breaking horses, he breaks people,” as if anything could explain the elaborate series of bridles and shock collars he forces his victims to wear.

Sean does everything he can to free her, but Cale is onto him, coming for Sean’s loved ones with sadistic delight. Early on, Brandon Boyce’s screenplay (which follows a tight, B-movie template in the vein of David Koepp’s “Panic Room”) illustrates how Sean and Derek’s system works when a rich white family pulls up in a Range Rover, before efficiently shifting into more unpredictable territory when a far shadier character pulls up in his Maserati.
