Trivia

The lead role of "Jimmy" was originally written with George N. Thompson in mind. Thompson unfortunately couldn't stand Las Vegas, so the role was up in the air until a mere week before filming started, when Scott Brown was cast. See more »

Superb Indie crime drama
4 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Malevolence is a solid, highly entertaining low budget crime drama. While the plot veers into multiple directions and is (at times) difficult to follow, the film remains unique and refreshing throughout. Directed by Mike Martinez and Nick Groff, Malevolence is a dark, twisted, often surreal ride of a movie.

Despite some weak acting in parts, Malevolence is highly impressive for its budget. The cinematography and editing are mostly top notch and the action scenes are appropriately gritty and gruesome. The film is also of note for being featuring the final appearance of cult actor Gordon Mitchell in a memorable role as a mob boss.

Recommended.
