Goofs

Colin is an escaped convict, he murdered two correctional officers while escaping from state custody. There would be a nation wide manhunt for him, his picture and information would be all over the news and social media sites and there would advisories on the radio in Tennessee, the surrounding states and the whole mid to lower east coast. Alexis, Colin's ex girlfriend would have been notified by the police of his escape and even possible had a police car posted at her house. Yet she is completely surprised when she sees Colin in her house. After Colin murders Alexis he leaves her body where he killed her and then later returns with Terry and her children. It is very unlikely her body laid there undiscovered for such a long period of time, a police officer would have found her body before Colin returned, since she would be someone the cops would be watching because of Colin's escape.

Formulaic, but not awful.
26 June 2016 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

"No Good Deed" isn't a bad home invasion thriller, but it's completely unremarkable, and merely satisfied with fitting a standard studio woman-in-peril mould. It's not difficult to tell where the events are all leading right from the beginning.

To its credit, the performances from Idris Elba, Taraji P. Henson and Leslie Bibb are decent, and the film manages one strong suspense sequence early on (Elba's first encounter with his ex-girlfriend after he leaves prison). There's also one mildly surprising twist in the final third, but its not enough to save a tepid, predictable middle section.

"Deed" is a film is enjoyed best as mindless entertainment on a rainy, stormy night (like the one in the film), with the proviso that you expect a film that trots along an utterly formulaic, seen-it-before path.
