A Not-Too-Thrilling Thriller
12 May 2010 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"Voodoo Dawn" is a not-too-thrilling thriller. Michael Madsen stars as Frank, who is let out of prison after a curse is set upon him. He wants to reclaim his status as a bar owner. But the voodoo curse won't let him... As you can see, the plot is minimal, and as the movie progresses, it gets even smaller.

Madsen and Arquette try, but can't get anything out of this except a paycheck. James Russo plays a washed up hick. If that the character or him in real life, I couldn't tell. Madsen has been in better Direct-to-Video productions like "Supreme Sanction" or "Executive Target". Rosanna Arquette is one of the better Arquettes, but she needs to pick out better material. I like all the actors involved, But I wish they put their efforts into something more worthwhile next time.
