Jeff Strong is brilliant
18 November 2005 | by mrdsharpSee all my reviews

Jeff Strong did a large body of strong work in Chicago as a theater actor but the understated quality of his performance in Bullet shows that the transition to screen only enhances the subtlety of his work. Strong never has to say a word to convey the loneliness and longing of his character. He creates sympathy even as his darker selfish intentions become painfully obvious. Luara Fisher is perfect, showing vulnerability and strength with absolute conviction. While this character could descend into a stock female victim she and the script rise above that possible cliché and use her situation to show the steel hidden within her bruised spirit. Writer /director Jim Sikora, spinning gold out of straw ,budget wise, once again provides a unique script and vision that should be seen on a much larger scale.
