Dead Drop (2013)
So bad it ain't even funny!
This movie can compete for best (worst?) turkey of the century!
Plot: Bad guy (Carbonell) throws Good guy (Goss) out of a plane. Good guy survives the fall from 3000 feet. How? Why? Who cares? Anyhow, once upon a time, Good guy and Bad guy were close. But Good guy allegedly stole money from Bad guy. So Bad guy kidnaps Good guy's love interest. Good guy then kills a bunch of people in order to recover the girl (good thing we know he's Good from the start, cause it'd be *really* hard to tell from the plot). He succeeds, but then the girl gets shot by "Even better guy", who happens to be the CIA handler of Good guy (?) At least I think so, because by then I was more fascinated by my cat's grooming habits than I was by the plot.
Anyhow, the girl survives because Good guy had the brilliant idea of driving around with a teenage boy locked up in his trunk, and - fortunately - the boy turns out to be a budding surgeon. Meanwhile, Bad guy walks around crying, staring at horses while emotionally holding his gun. All his lines are variants of "Why did you betray me, we were BFF" and "Where's my money? Give it back". Even primitive computer-generated dialogues could do better than that!
The scene where Good guy gets thrown off the plane is repeated several times, for "artistic effect"(?)
By the time you find out who wins, you won't give a damn.
Sad thing is that the actors aren't intrinsically bad (they've demonstrated their acting skills elsewhere). I guess they needed the paycheck. But how the writers, director etc managed to find money to produce this is incomprehensible. Glad I didn't pay to watch this flick, and could click on ffwd!
Oh, b.t.w. this is the first time I bother to post a review, but - as immodest as it may sound - this review will still be better than the movie...
