With family like this, who needs enemies?
22 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The commonly used phrase "blood is thicker than water" is used when one's devotion to family supersedes friendship. That being said, there are always exceptions to the rule -- and "Booster" is that exception.

Simon (Nico Stone) is an endearing young man, relied upon to help his family members in need. His self-serving brother Sean is arrested and needs bailed out, his uncle Harold (Seymour Cassell) who abandoned his own family is in failing health along with his grandmother. Nico is not a career criminal but receives unrelenting pressure to help and assist his family members through armed robberies while they question his devotion in the process. Throughout most of its brief time span, the movie shifts between Simon's hazily defined underworld activities and his improbable budding romance with a sales clerk (Kristen Dougherty) who spots him shoplifting at her store.

The movie generates some slow-simmering suspense as Stone subtly conveys Simon's immobilizing frustration. Nico Stone's performance is really the only reason that keeps this movie mildly compelling."Booster" has a pretty thin story centered around an unappealing dysfunctional family that is impossible to feel sympathy for. Ultimately, "Booster" doesn't do a whole lot, and it could almost survive with its plot completely removed.
