Great Gritty Noir Film!
24 February 2021 | by spanoscottSee all my reviews

Flinch is the directorial debut film from Cameron Van Hoy, a story about a hitman who falls in love with a girl who witnessed a murder he commits. I always enjoy a good hitman story and this one is a rollercoaster of excitement and tension from beginning to end. I really enjoyed the cast and seeing some big name actors that I haven't seen in a while. Cathy Moriarty does a really great job at playing this crazy yet sympathetic mother and it's always nice to see David Proval again since I remember him from my favorite show of all time, The Sopranos. The film gives off a cool vibe that is somewhere between the the movies "Drive" and "Good Time". The low lighting paired with the fantastic soundtrack from "Miami Nights 1984", gives this feeling of relaxation yet suspense. It's a very cool mix that brings me back to the John Carpenter vibes we used to get from his 80's films.

Another thing I loved about the film is that just when you think it may be a little too slow, it'll hit you with a great moment filled with a lot of tension. Those big twists were some of the best moments from the film, there were various times where my expectations were subverted and I was itching to see how it would all play out. By the end, the story doesn't disappoint as I sat up in my chair at awe from the big shock of the story. One last thing that I want to say that impressed me was the bloodwork and the gun violence. Some really great techniques used and it elevated the film in my opinion.

Overall, Flinch blew away my expectations and I found myself having a really great time with it. It's a gritty noir centered around romance that calls back to some of the great aspects from 80's/90's action movies. Everyone that worked on this should be proud and I can't wait to see what the director and the lead actors do next.
