Preposterous
29 January 2013 | by RaidonDSee all my reviews

From a preposterous premise Ben Ketai and Ryan Lewis concocted a rather ho-hum suspense thriller. Without giving away much here, this is loosely based on a Twilight Zone episode, with a little of that Michael Douglas movie "The Game" thrown in for good measure - a connect-the-numbers kind of plot which lives mostly by Milo Ventimiglia's performance and a few necessary cliff hangers since this is really a movie chopped apart into six parts...eh, rather "gangster" in its set up and not believable. As "The Twilight Zone" has taught us all, the moral transformation of the key progenitor should matter more than the quasi-suspenseful machinations of the incredulous plot. If you care for some such structure, watch "The Booth at the End" instead.
