My Take – A question comes to your mind when see a bunch of talented actors hamming it up in a really badly written movie; why did they even sign this?? This film is a perfect example of that thought.
James Franco, Kate Hudson & Tom Wilkinson have made a name for themselves in their respective genres. But here they are reduced to being just punching bags for lesser known actors. With a predictable plot; a debt ridden couple steal from a gangster & hells breaks loose, not much can be done. Well this may have been done like 200 times already, doesn’t make it any better.
Director Henrik Ruben Genz manages to keep a scene or two interesting & does try to quench our thirst with a bloody climax, but unfortunately the damage done is to far gone. Good People has a talented & a likeable cast, but the mundane plot & sluggish screenplay, make this film very hateful!
