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.

What it's supposed to be - very entertaining
22 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read a lot of reviews before watching, and truly was surprised as this movie was MUCH better than the detractors let on. The acting is great, the storyline, though part of a formulaic genre, is well thought out and moves at a great pace, the dynamic of action/release/suspense/reveal is well timed, and unless you're unbelievably difficult to entertain, you'll not want to be interrupted during any part of this film. Are there plot holes? We debated this and decided it's truly up to your point of view, but the events are actually all completely plausible. Summarily, unless you go into movies for the sole intent of picking them apart and finding things to not like, I guarantee you will be surprised, uncomfortable, freaked out, worried, excited, and ultimately entertained by No Good Deed.
