Goofs

(at around 59 mins) The couple have a conversation where their lips alternate between moving and not moving. It's either very strange editing or these people are telepathic. "Anne, let's go" (lips move) "What are we going to do, Tom?" (lips do not move) "Where are we going to go? (lips do not move) "We have one place where we can go" (lips do not move) "At least for a few hours." (Lips move again!) See more »

Familiar (though professionally made) story
8 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

If you have watched your share of thrillers, more likely than not the premise of "Good People" - ordinary people stumbling across a large amount of cash belonging to criminals - will be somewhat familiar to you. It certainly seemed familiar to me. But it's not just the premise that's familiar, but also how the movie plays out, with its various characters and supposed plot twists and turns. The climax comes as no surprise, since it's telegraphed very early in the movie as to what will happen and where it will happen.

Still, I must give credit where credit is due. The acting by all the participants is professional and effective; the bad guys do come across as acceptably nasty pieces of work. The movie also has reasonable production values for a movie that didn't have a megabudget. And the story, though very familiar and predictable, does go from scene to scene at a fairly brisk pace and leaves no lulls. So if you don't mind seeing the same story and characters all over again, you'll probably find this movie a fairly well crafted retread.
