Entertaining, but not necessarily funny
18 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'In Security' (aka 'Armed Response') is about two guys who own a home security firm which is slowly failing. Therefore, they hit upon the idea of robbing houses in the area in order to boost their business. It's a simple enough premise and in works... to some extent.

Okay, so it's never going to be a classic, but it has its strong points, namely the two main guys play off each other well and are a believable pair of 'normal' blokes. The story is also solid and has a lot of potential and you may be forgiven for thinking that this is going to be a comedy. It has all the makings of one, but, somewhere along the line, it was like the writers never bothered to include any actual jokes.

I watched the whole film without laughing once. The first half may raise the odd half-smile, but that's about as close as you're going to get to any hilarity (in fact... during the first half there was a bit that actually made me jump – something that doesn't even happen when I watch horror movies!). But, like I said, the story rolls along and, despite the lack of humour, it's still entertaining.

Then, in the second half, things lose all hints of comedy and actually get quite dark (think murder and torture). We're introduced to quite a nasty villain, but, if you saw either Ving Rhames or Vinnie Jones' names in the cast list – don't go expecting them to burst onto the set and save the day. Their addition amounts to little more than extended cameos.

By the time I got to the end of the film I'd forgotten that the whole thing was actually told by one of the guys in a bar. This all seemed a bit pointless by this time as it's never mentioned during the film's runtime. However, I didn't feel like I'd wasted my time watching the film. It's an enjoyable enough little film, just don't go expecting too many laughs and be prepared for when it goes dark about half way through.
