Storyline

Hannah Lee Baker is a bright teen girl trapped in the dark Southern underworld of violence and guns, meth labs and vicious biker gangs, and whose only refuge is chess. She lives with Amber, her older sister; and her uncle Donny, an addict. All live in fear of Uncle Frank Stinson, who runs the illegal family business with an iron fist, aided by his psychotic younger brother Bobby. Things change for the worse when Amber falls in love with Wild Bill, a meth trafficker who finds himself at war with Frank. Hannah realizes the only way to save her family is by cleverly scheming to pit one pawn against another in a cunning chess game. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
Hannah Lee Baker: The queen is quaint and quick conceit, which makes her walk which way she list. And roots spin up that lie in wait, to work her treason 'ere she wist. Her force is such against her foes, that whom she meets she over throws.

Wicked Bad
13 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wicked Blood follows the life of a "diamond in the rough" teenage girl brought up in tragedy and hardship. She relates the people in her life to chess pieces and uses concepts of the game to devise a plan as a means to take control of her life. Part of this plan is to join up with her uncle's gang as a drug mule transporting $20K worth of product for $10 a trip. Hilarity ensures… Right!? Wrong.

Instead of this movie taking itself so seriously it should have been made to be more of a situational comedy given the plot. The director seems to try and feign intellect into the story through chess concepts of strategy, but this direction further complicates the overall production value as it give the entire movie muted undertone. Sometimes movies are made just for the sake of making movies and this one is no exception. The adventure of our young, dumpy hero flows well enough, but it was uninteresting at best and often took turns that where pointless and lead nowhere to enriching the story line. The actors did OK to play their part but nothing stood out more than just a day at the office for them.

In some cases, I can identify and concede to a target audience enjoying a film but for this one I'm completely at a loss.
