What to Expect: Cold Comes the Night, 6 June 2014
Author: Film Watchin Fool from United States

Why You Might Like It: This is a pretty solid kidnapping-ransom/heist film that manages to be pretty entertaining. The acting is decent from Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston and I thought Cranston's character was intriguing. I felt the technical aspects of the film were spot on as well. If you can ignore some of the plot holes and lack of realism, then the movie makes from a fairly interesting watch.

Why You Might Not Like It: There are some obvious downfalls to the plot that are evident and substantial. In my opinion, there are also some spots that lack realism. If you can't ignore that, then you might want to avoid the film. Also, this movie is fairly average and there is definitely better films out there from this genre.

Acting/Casting: 6*

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 5.5*

Plot/Characters: 5*

Entertainment Value: 6.5*

Total - 6+5.5+5+6.5 = 23/4 = 5.75* - Worth a rental
