A 5th-grader can write a better screenplay
26 July 2019 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

Even all the fake 9 and 10/10 reviews can't save the rating of this film.

Actor, turned novice writer-director Tom DeNucci, did a fairly decent job behind the camera as director, but failed to direct his cast properly.

But his screenplay... wow, why didn't anyone else proofread this mess? This is one of the worst screenplays I've seen, and seriously failed what could've been a great biopic. A 5th-grader could've written a better screenplay. The first half was ok, for a novice writer, but what was the point of 80% of the second half? Long dragged out and unnecessary scenes with a terrible pace. I literally had to FFW some of the long useless scenes. The 99 min runtime should've been cut down to 80 mins max with the content filmed. Editing was the next flop... did someone simply use scissors and tape randomly to edit the first half of the film, then simply not edit/cut anything at all the second half?

The acting was decent, considering the director did a lousy job directing his cast, but not as bad as other reviewers mention. The cinematography was great and the era settings/props where on point. The score wasn't bad either.

It's a shame Tom DeNucci didn't at least get a seasoned writer to proofread his script, as it would have made a great film on this biopic (for actual story, Google "Wikipedia Bonded Vault heist"). Hopefully he learns from his mistakes. Sadly, it's only a 3/10 from me.
