Great story and solid acting
6 September 2016 | by samicebergjohnsonSee all my reviews

Preying for Mercy is a solid action thriller that captivates you from the first 2 minutes and throws you in the deep until the last scene.

Starring Martha Byrne and Jayson Gladstone, preying for Mercy is a dark thriller which explores how our past can never be forgotten and will always catch up to us no matter how far we run away. Martha does a brilliant job in this film with some amazing scenes that showcase her range of emotions. Gladstone has also a very solid performance as the cop who is being hunted for his past. The rest of the cast does a good job too. Gladstone plays an LAPD cop who gets a hit put on him because of his past, and he must chase down and solve the problem before its to late for him and his family. With a shorter run time, the film still manages to get some serious action scenes across as well as have the time to build characters and plot in extreme detail.

Bill Duke does a great job of directing this film, giving it heart and enough action to please everyone. With only having a run time of 40 minutes and so much character development and story progression you will be amazed at how quickly and smoothly the story flows.

If you want to be entertained and see some great action scenes then do your self a favor and have a look at Preying for Mercy
