Storyline

The town of Westbrick is a rough place to live in. It is here that the young rookie cop Matthew lives with his wife. Meanwhile, notorious serial killers Billy and Barbara embark on a killing spree in order to get notoriety. Matthew gets his first assignment with his much older partner William when he unfortunately crosses paths with Billy and Barbara. William gets killed in the line of duty by Billy and Barbara but that's not enough for them: they torture and brutally murder Matthew's wife. Things get even worse for young Matthew when he loses his job, being wrongfully blamed for William's death and now charged with murder. Matthew finds himself isolated; there is no reason to count on a corrupt legal system and even less of a chance of being found innocent. He goes on a rampage for vengeance and slowly turns into a mad psychopath just like Billy and Barbara. Written by Melany Denise

A total mess
22 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie makes no apologies for what it wants to be. It says right on the box art it's "Sin City Meets The Spirit". Predictanly it fails at both, but much more at being Sin City than The Spirit. Sure, Sin City had the visuals, but it also had a pretty compelling story line, even if it was a bit of a film noir wannabe. The Spirit had the visuals and...well...that's about it. Pretty much everything else was terrible.

Westbrick Murders follows a cop who basically loses everything and vows justice. Well, OK, he doesn't really vow justice. He's kind of guilted into it by his overbearing but wise father (a glorified cameo by Eric Roberts). I don't know about you, but if my spouse was murdered by a couple of serial killers (and I was a cop) my first instinct would not be to run home to daddy so he could tell me to man up and deal with it. This film fails on a lot more levels than story and really it's kind of sad. If a cameo by Eric Roberts is the best you can muster, it's better to just count your losses and walk away. But this film doesn't. It uses cheap effects and horribly annoying jumpy edits to try and make it feel gritty and quick. Even at that it fails miserably as you soon get tired of the visual failure and start to notice what utter crap the story is. I'm not here to defend Frank Miller's movies at all (some at a total waste of time), but even he did so much better than this pathetic copy that it's almost embarrassing.

Ditch this nonsense and don't get tricked by it's cover.
