unsuspectingly charming...
5 June 2013 | by seethestars83See all my reviews

Get Greedo is a film that demonstrates the talent and scope of writer/direction/musician/costar, Christopher Downie. He gives the fans a film that fills in the often told story of best friends Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes, as Jason struggles with drug addiction and maintaining the greatest relationship he's ever known.

The film hooks you from the first note, rather than waiting to get into the intense topic, or burying the lead. The acting of Chris Bain (Jason Mewes) and Mark Frost (Kevin Smith) starts out strong and maintains throughout the film. Downie's inclusion of the idiosyncrasies of his real life subjects is an added bonus for fellow Smith fans and shows how much he cares for his characters.

The script was enjoyable with unsuspected bits of humor. Downie's writing shines in the third act with a twist that pulls at the heartstrings. I am left feeling affected and even uplifted by the film. The subject matter well understood and brilliantly written makes it an enjoyable watch for all.
