Intriguing, with Great Premise but Wasted by an Inconclusive Ending
3 April 2016 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

The teenager Hawk Kodiak (Lucas Salvagno) has just left a juvenile facility to live with the Eddie Palmer (Robert Prescott), who owns a dinner in Rockwell. Hawk arrives in the small town by bus bringing a basketball, and befriends the local Joey Larch (Peter Vack). Then he goes to the high school, where he meets Eddie's niece Colbie Palmer (Ella Rae Peck), who drives him home. He meets the outcast Johnny Stumbles (Bob Braswell), who is the only survivor of a bus accident with the local volleyball team that happened seventeen years ago. Soon Hawk discovers that time has stopped in Rockwell since the accident and people have not aged. However he decides to play basketball with Joey and Johnny and soon there are changes in town. Who is Hawk Kodiak?

"God Don't Make the Laws" is an intriguing film, with a great premise that is wasted by an inconclusive ending. The beginning seems to be an episode of "The Twilight Zone", with a stranger arriving is a town that has stopped in time. The mystery persists and the viewer expects an explanation for the event, but the conclusion is absolutely disappointing without explanation. Paul Sorvino participation is only to give his name to the credits since his character is absolutely out of the context. Who sees this film will certainly expect to like, but will certainly be disappointed. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "O Tempo Não Espera Por Ninguém" ("Time Does not Wait for Anybody")
