Catch .44 [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

Catch .44 [2011]

I just don’t know what’s all the fuss about this movie, it isn’t that bad. I think that people expected much more with such names as Bruce Willis and Forest Whitaker and that noir poster, but as always you must lower your expectation with these types of movies. Granted, the movie was counting on a simple story presented in a Tarantino/Noir style to be entertaining and intense, and as it turns out, the story isn’t that good. What kept me watching this flick are Forest Whitaker and Malin Akerman along with general curiosity (I forgot extreme laziness to switch to another movie :). I think that the main thing that people are bitching about is the story that is too simple (along with the characters) and presented to us in an overly complicated way. Still, I do believe that this movie is worth watching, at least for Mr. Whitaker and not to mention three hot, young ladies, but if you are a movie purist you might wanna skip this one.

Three girls working for the local criminal boss called Mel got the assignment to intercept a drug exchange that is taking place in an isolated diner. Sounds simple enough, but soon things will go sideways as it turns out that this job might be their last. On their way over there they are stopped by a charming sheriff that seems a bit crazy, asking if he can help them in any way with his funny accent, and what they didn’t know is that sheriff might actually save their life…
