Boring revenge thriller
22 November 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

"A Time to Die" was based on a story by Mario Puzo. I haven't read the original story, but it has to be a lot better than this cinematic version. The revenge for a war crime premise, while somewhat familiar, had promise, but the execution is mostly anything but competent. One big problem with the movie is the central character played by Edward Albert Jr. We learn next to nothing about him, and we never really get to see what is going on in his head. The biggest problem with the movie, however, is that its tone is almost completely flat. It's a boringly told story, finding it hard to find excitement even in the scenes where the hero gets to execute some revenge. The only things that save the movie from reaching the level of total ineptness are a couple of okay action sequences and some welcome scenes of nudity. Though even with this stuff, the movie still remains quite hard to sit through.
