REVIEW: Bad Samaritan

Dean Devlin’s latest is proof that it’s sometimes easier to deliver thrills on a micro-budget.

2.5 Stars (2.5 / 5)

 

In a world of heavyweight prestige pieces, like the upcoming Suffragette, and straight-to-Sunday-evening light dramas, like the charming but forgettable Mr. Holmes, the British film industry does seem to be lacking in low-budget genre (excluding the ever-present straight-to-DVD Mockney gangster contingent.) The Messenger is a nice exception to this rule.
