Real and Spiritual
31 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. The cover image makes it look like a mediocre gangster film, but it's really great. Here's what I like about it: First of all, the acting was really good. Paris Campbell, who plays the main character (Mike Sullivan), is a really really great actor. I have no idea why he isn't famous yet. And he portrays a complex character who is tortured by his own past sins, and is trying to do the right thing. He is caught up in a world where there are no good guys, and he is trying to save a prostitute who has no interest in his good will. Mike is definitely a Christ figure in the film, and the religious metaphor is subtle but clear. I like the fact that in the end, good intentions do not necessarily mean a happy ending, and sometimes there are no good choices. This is a dark film, so if you're looking for a cookie cutter, predictable action film, this isn't the movie for you. But if you want to see an interesting, real film that has a spiritual side, you should check out Sucker Punch.
