Formulae thriller, just a cut above average
1 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

"Water's Edge" screenwriter Craig Brewer wrote and directed the very low-budget, very compelling and brilliant "The Poor and Hungry", so that was all I really needed to know to put this picture at the top of my rental que. I'm a little disappointed. This is only a formulae thriller, perhaps just a cut above average, with decent casting and direction. I can see the Craig Brewer touch in the screenplay: relatively interesting characters, mostly believable plot considering the contrivances necessary for a formulae thriller, and good dialogue. I will still keep an eye on this remarkable talent for another unforgettable picture like his first. Some day. In the meantime I know you gotta pay the rent.
