What to Expect: Pawn
24 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why You Might Like It: This is a very good hostage/heist film that will entertain you from start to finish. The pace of the movie is great and it has plenty of action to keep you entertained. There are many notable actors in the movie and everyone involved does a solid job. I also thought the directing was well done and the movie also has a bunch going on to keep you guessing. Overall, a fun watch.

Why You Might Not Like It: One of the knocks might be that this film just has too much going on for an hour and a half movie. There are flashbacks, intertwined story lines, twists, etc. that some viewers could find confusing and hard to keep up with. It does seem like an extra 30 minutes or so might have made the movie considerably better.

Acting/Casting: 6.5*

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 6.5*

Plot/Characters: 6*

Entertainment Value: 6.5*

Total - 6.5+6.5+6+6.5 = 24.5/4 = 6.375* - Worth a Rental
