Ethan (Thomas Ian Nicholas) is a taxi driver trying to make a living in Los Angeles. His sister Mia falls in love with the wrong people, who soon plays Cadden (Mickey Rourke). When events begin to take a downward turn in their lives, this bold character turns into something even more terrifying.
This low-resolution action-thriller film by independent director Brian A. Metcalf is a slow-burning character piece, which takes advantage of a streamlined visual aesthetic. With a disproportionate performance of Thomas Ian Nicholas as Ethan, negative It takes time to gain momentum. This Los Angeles is poor, desperate, and rooted in a sense of reality that gives the city its pulse. The characters in this small cinematic world are isolated from the rich, traditional image that Hollywood presents on the screen.
Ethan and his sister Mia, Kelly Arjen, are introduced to tragedy. Resentment is present on both sides and speaks of an inherent disconnect between two people divided by grief. Mia seeks comfort in an alternate family circle of villains who lead her down the path of bad decisions. After establishing this dynamic character early on, screenwriter Brian A. Metcalf revealed his trump card in the form of Mickey Rourke.
Although the introduction of this heavy myth in later days seems relatively innocuous, its pernicious effect is something that creeps in early on. The loss of potential that is reflected through this performance is inevitable, as Cadden hints at a life co-ordinated with bad decisions. A prosperous promise, raw talent, and a mood to match his portrayal of a sick man. The elegance of the attire covers a slew of infighting, and appears through glimpses between sunglasses that barely hide his self-hatred.
Although the structure of this visceral thriller adheres to traditional methods, negative Come back to life in the last thirty minutes. When conditions start to escalate and reconciliation turns into revenge, the public will feel that gloves take off. Ethan slowly returns to the corner as his understanding of his position becomes clear. Surrounded by those who would rather see him dead, this ambitious Uber driver becomes an unlikely agent for revenge.
negative Largely because of this shift in gears, the crowd is pushing a heartbreaking result. Beyond Mickey Rourke features Welsh actor Matt Ryan, best known as Constantino. There is a real venom behind the characterization of Jake, who confronts Caden head-on in terms of being on screen. Lou Diamond Phillips and Penelope Ann Miller are also noteworthy for more than just an extended pattern, they are basic and add value. In a movie that looks fragmented at times, having strong ups and downs from an eclectic crew helps keep things consistent.
Stylistically, it feels reminiscent of Michael Mann SidewaysAs LA comes to life under the direction of cinematographer Derek Cohan. Abandoned buildings, harsh industrial interiors, and an unwavering representation of Los Angeles life outside of Hollywood are brought home. Besides visual and verbal economy, away from overexposure, negative It has a great impact.
negative It is available for broadcast via Amazon in the US and will be headlining the Ramsgate International Film Festival prior to its release in the UK.
