Did You Know?

Goofs:
Factual errors: When Ritchie and John meet, Ritchie tells John he needs a push to jump start his stalled car. As John pushes and Ritchie steers John says "pop the clutch". Soon after, the camera cuts to a view of the drivers floor and there is no clutch only the accelerator and brake indicating the car has an automatic transmission. So, not only is the description if the car incorrect, it is nigh impossible for one man to manually push start a car with an automatic transmission.See more »

Oh my dear lord....., 1 July 2013
Author: andyprendy1 from United Kingdom

With an intriguing plot description and starring the always watchable Samuel L Jackson, I sat down to watch Meeting Evil with a degree of optimism. Unfortunately this was soon washed away as the film rapidly revealed itself as an oddly toned and faintly ridiculous attempt at a psychological thriller. The not very likable Luke Wilson sleepwalks through his role as a down-on-his luck Real Estate worker with a barely explained but apparently complicated family life. Enter into the mix a scenery-chewing performance from Sam L Jackson who at least seems to enjoy himself which is a damn sight more than I did. Borrowing elements from Changing Lanes and The Hitcher the film flops from scene to scene in what is neither a thriller nor the dark comedy that it could and maybe should have been.
