Basic cookie cutter crime movie
I’ve never a more emphatic 5 in my life. It’s not horrible, it’s not good either. It’s a 5. Average film. The dialogue is only written to move the plot along. You’ve probably seen this same plot 2 dozen times with different settings and variables.
The acting is okay, ving rhames is good, but mostly it’s just a go through the motions movie. Good guy, bad guys, good cop, bad cops, evil real estate guy, some tepid violence. It’s really a movie I’ll never think about again.
It’s like when you write a movie and you want everyone to agree, not take any risks and make a cookie cutter film that’s been done a hundred times. This is that movie. If you love average stuff and like to be bored and see a through the motions movie then this is your jam!!!
A Dull Thriller
The Locksmith is directed by first time director Nicholas Harvard and stars Ryan Phillipe, Kate Bosworth and Ving Rhames.
The story follows Miller a safecracker where in a job gone bad his partner and friend, Kevin Reyes gets murdered by a dirty cop and he is forced to take the fall. 10 years later he gets out and his friend Frank (Ving Rhames) urges him to make things up to his ex finance (Kate Bosworth) and his young daughter. Unfortunately things get more complicated for Miller when April Reyes shows up asking for his help. Feeling like he owes her for what he let happen to her brother he soon finds himself back in the world he thought he left behind. To make matters worse the dirty cop who got him sent to prison in the first place is still out there looking to make Miller’s life a living hell.
Let’s start with the good. For a first time feature by Nicholas Harvard this is pretty competently directed and actually looks like a real movie which isn’t something I can’t say about other DTV movies. The core cast here consisting of Ryan Phillipe, Kate Bosworth and Ving Rhames all do a good job and are beleievable in their roles. Unfortunately what holds this movie back is the script and generic story. A case of “too many cooks in the kitchen” working together to create a project somehow simultaneously convoluted and playing things a little too safe to really amount to much. Maybe not as totally devoid of charm as you’d expect, but still really only ever vaguely competent at best and mediocre at worst.
In the end The Locksmith is just bland all around despite committed lead performances from both Ryan Phillipe and Kate Bosworth.
