#REVIEW: ” BAD SAMARITAN”
Struggling restaurant valet and aspiring photographer Sean Falco (Robert Sheehan), make the poor decision of using the cars of its patrons to break into their homes. Sean‘s world is turned upside down one day when he and another valet Derek (Carlito Olivero) break into the home of a violent and unpredictable psychopath Cale Erendreich (David Tennant), finding a woman help captive and tortured named Katie (Kerry Condon). He flees out of fear but then finds himself in a deadly chase as Cale is in hot pursuit of his burglars who now know his deep, dark secret.
Directed by Dean Devlin (Geostorm) and written by Brandon Boyce, Bad Samaritan is a Thriller none short of manipulative twists, turns and screams. Sheehan, currently in Toronto at work on Netflix‘s The Umbrella Academy, carries the weight of the Film in a solid performance as does Tennant who is one-note terrifying. While the Film gets in over its head in ambition, plagued by the implausible, Devlin manages to keep us invested the entire way although we wish we understood better the story behind villainous Cale and what led him to down a path of ruthlessness.
