Powerful Performances
26 September 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

"A Line in the Sand" is a drama that tells the story of Banzai, a homeless and wondering man with a tortured past. After being booked by cops over a petty crime, the film's plot begins to slowly unravel as you begin to learn more about Banzai and the circumstances that got him to where he is.

Played by Jon Bernthal, watching Banzai's grip on reality slowly loosen throughout the film is a real treat, especially once the revelations of his past come to light from the perspectives of the case detectives who have detained him. Led by hard-nosed actor Bruce McGill, who also gives an awesome performance in this engrossing drama, the trio of cops in the movie add a smart and sophisticated edge to the film's world, adding a legitimate layer of intelligence and believably. This film is definitely worth a watch if you're into any kind of cop drama, as the performances and story don't disappoint!
