Storyline

Bruce (Ry Barrett) is an ordinary repairman tormented by a crippling sense of responsibility for his disabled wife Samantha, an ex-policewoman (Tianna Nori), the survivor of a gang-related assault. Bruce's increasing hyper-sensitivity to the injustice suffered by his wife steer him down a dark path of vigilantism, and with his rapidly disintegrating mental health, paranoia and overwhelming sense of doom, Bruce channels his inner rage towards a young woman, Marie (Jessica Vano) and finds refuge in a world of extreme violence. Both a character study and a psychological examination of trauma, The Demolisher is an unapologetic portrayal of what can happen when a fragile mind is pushed too far. Written by Latefox Pictures

Cinematography is excellent, but doesn't make up for the amateur script and directing.
8 January 2017 | by ranifuniSee all my reviews

Didn't research the director and haven't seen any of his other films, but I bet he did a lot of music videos because this is what this film feels like. A series of montages between scenes with nonsense dialogue that barely move the thin story along to an almost comedic ending. I wish I had seen this at a festival, because it feels like the disc has scenes chopped out of it at random by the distributor. There are holes in what is already a weak plot and no motivation for character choices. The acting is laughable, but feels like if the actors actually had something to work with in terms of a script they might have done better. Cinematography is excellent, but doesn't make up for the amateur script and directing.

This film is all surface and no substance. No emotion. Just a pretty empty shell. Blu Ray has great packaging too, but as they say... you can polish a turd, but it's still a turd.
