Wrong Turn takes a turn for the better
10 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

EXTERIOR: NIGHT INSIDE CAR

The opening is much like the opening of RESERVOIR DOGS, which starts with a wounded guy in the back of a car.

This revenge mob hit film is reminiscent of PRIME CUT, (Lee Marvin) and THE EVIL THAT MEN DO, (Charlie Bronson) and about a dozen mobster revenge films where a lower echelon mobster seeks justice against the mobster kingpin for killing a family member or other unforgivable act.

But, I really enjoyed this thriller because of the relationship between Vincent and Joshua.

Didn't think Vincent needed to be a paranoid tho, and the scene showing his wife's affair should not have been cut out of the movie.

I agree with others, that this dark, relationship thriller, turns into a Jackie Chan martial art duke out...so it jumps out of style. Confusing flash back on who really killed Joshua's dad. Despite some murky editing and script confusion, the mutual loyalty between Joshua and Vincent could have been stronger...too many confusing moments.

EXTERIOR: DAY OUTSIDE VINCENT'S HOUSE

Car is outside with two hit men waiting for Vincent to come out of the house. Their car is bumped from behind. WTF? They get out for a look and are are quite surprised at what happens. So was I.

Nicely, done. And, great supporting characters in this overall good, engaging drama. I don't know why it wasn't in the theaters. Maybe it was on a limited release.
