Powerful & Gritty Drama.
19 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

20 Funerals was a good drama from relatively new director, Anghus Houvouras. Mark Mench played Sean Kietel, a cop who had had enough of criminals getting the upper hand while more cops were getting the short end of the stick. The real standout in this movie was D.J. Naylor, who played Marcus Chase. Naylor resembles a more hardcore, buffed out & tattooed Vin Diesel. His charisma carried the movie and, to be honest, it needed it. Like other reviewers, I would like to see more of Naylor in the future. With the right coaching, he could be one of the next big action stars.

Other than the original plot, which consisted of four cops being fed up with the system, decide to go into business for themselves and stop playing by the book. Instead of arresting criminals, they killed them, not having to worry about lawyers, bad juries and judges putting them back out into the street. I liked this idea very much, but the movie turned into nothing more than a countdown of the top 20 criminals being hunted down with unoriginal gunfights, interrogations & dialog. The original idea along with the ending is what makes it stand out for me, otherwise, I would have rated this movie much lower.

At times, the camera work and the inability to throw convincing punches reminded me that I was watching a straight-to-video movie and detracted from the experience as a whole. That, and the weak story brought my overall rating down. Recommended if you like low budget cops vs gangster movies. 6.5/10
