Poorly made and going through the motions
9 June 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THE NIGHT CREW had promise, with an action-focused narrative utilising America's war on drugs as a backdrop, and a seasoned cast of B-movie faces who would no doubt do their best with the material at hand. Sadly, this turns out to be a film which hinges on the quality of the execution, and it just isn't that great.

The narrative is of the typical siege scenario, although it's cheaply-handled and plenty of it takes place at night to hide the paucity of the budget. The cinematography is poor and makes the film look cheap throughout, and the special effects of the shoot-outs and the like are merely ordinary. What's missing is suspense, something to keep you hooked to the unfolding action.

The cast is headlined by Luke Goss (HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY) as the leader of the heroic bounty hunters. Goss is all right, but he has done better in the past, and he seems to be going through the motions here like the rest of the cast members. Reliable B-movie star Bokeem Woodbine is better as the gun-toting Crenshaw. Danny Trejo has an extended cameo, and there are more minor roles for players like Don Swayze and Jason Mewes. Chasty Ballesteros and Luciana Faulhaber are the women of the piece and both particularly poor in the acting stakes. As for the extra, horror-themed sub-plot, that seems to be tacked on to the movie as it bears no influence on the narrative whatsoever.
