Contrived and predictable
13 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

"Acts of Violence" suffers from a really poorly written script that relies heavily on tropes and plot devices borrowed from other films, including "Taken" and "Casino Royale." The villains are into everything, kidnapping, human trafficking, prostitution and drugs, including selling narcotics intended for use on rhinos. Their motivations seem to be to do whatever might make a visually interesting scene. It's largely contrived and predictable. The movie is a sequence of scenes we've seen before, but executed without panache and little logic. It's part teenage fantasy fulfillment for middle-aged gun nuts, part DTV low-budget actioner, part morality play with the subtlety of an Aesop fable. The actors do as well as they can with the material provided, but the script seems something that even Steven Segal would reject for one of his recent Eastern European productions. Production values aren't too terribly bad, but suffer from over-reliance on jiggly-cam shots. With some fifty-thousand screenplays written each year and a huge catalogue of scripts that haven't been produced, one would think they could have found better material.
