The finest movie of Renfro's short career!
8 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

Hollywood Flies is a rip-roaring action neo-noir thriller, the kind of film you would expect if Quentin Tarantino and Dave Barry eevr wrote a screenplay together! Two young siblings are cruising the countryside when they pick up a couple of hitchhikers who seem a bit dodgy... one thing leads to another and bodies start dropping like flies, which is where I assume the movie got its title from. Renfro gives the performance of his career as young hooligan Jamie, who starts being attracted to the kidnapped girl, which may compromise his relationship with his co-conspirator. Fantastic performances, great acting and a roaring soundtrack make Hollywood Flies one of the most underrated gems of 2004! A must see!
