This film is worth seeing just for the performance of Chris Evans, he was absolutely amazing in this role and I hope that he chooses roles just like this one from now on. The film itself was not that great but it was not bad either. One can tell that the film had a low budget and the director made some major mistakes but the idea is good. Evan’s character is very messed up and it is very hard to root for him or for that matter like him and that shows how well Evans played the role.Overall, I would see this film just because of Chris Evans but I would rent it.
I thought that the film was alright, it kind of reminded me of an episode of “Law and Order” so it was not exceptional, more like mediocre. The only thing that saves the film is the performance of Chris Evans. I had no idea he can act like this and be so compelling and believable, appearantly he is a good actor, he just needs a good role. Evans works really hard to save this film from being worse than mediocre, however one person can not save the whole production. To be fair, Brett Cullen also did a great job with the role and helped out Evens a lot. Overall, I do not recommend seeing this film in the theaters but renting it on DVD might be alright.
The film had all the right ingredients but failed miserably putting them together in a cohesive picture and that is very sad. The film could have been very powerful and could have delivered the message very well but it failed because the dialogue was awful and the focus was shifted too much on the main character Mike(played by Chris Evans). The only thing I liked about this film was Evan’s performance, I had no idea he can act like this, it was truly terrific. I hope Evans will be able to get roles in better film because he is truly talented.
This is a drama about a drug addicted lawyer who takes on a health supply corporation, the film is directed by Adam Kassen and Mark Kassen and stars Chris Evans, Mark Kassen and Vinessa Shaw. The film itself is very mediocre and kind of boring but Chris Evans shines in it and tries to save the film really hard. He has a very strong presence in the film and I was very impressed by his performance. The film suffers from bad dialogue and bad subplots that are not necessary or interesting. I though that the cast was pretty good and they did everything they could with the material that was given This film could have been excellent in the hands of more experienced filmmakers.
Obviously a big story, a real life story, which started in Houston and affected the whole world.
Obviously a great lead actor which I loved in one of my best remembered US films of the last decade, Chris Evans in "London" with his real-life long-time girlfriend Jessica Biel.
But the screen story obviously overdid it with the goodness-in-all-the-bad-mess "Half Nelson" bad guy hero stereotype. He looks like him, acts like him, and the whole counter-story is a Half Nelson "I am a druggie but adorable mess".
If the production values where not that great, the actors and the story not that convincing I would have walked out, because you could easily predict every next step, and everything just smelled overscripted. Which is especially bad for a convincing real-life story.
