I don’t understand this Jared Leto appeal. I still need to watch Dallas Buyers Club to witness his Oscar-winning performance but, he doesn’t have much range besides acting strange. Rami Malek, I thought, was pretty good here, not great. Denzel Washington, once again, carries a meh film to some level of watchability. Halfway through Little Things, I felt that it gave up investment on plot & character development. Admittedly, it took me awhile to finish this film, as I didn’t finish till last week. It wasn’t compelling, sadly. I didn’t care for the twist & turns nor did I care about Denzel’s character, essentially, burning all the evidence. Felt like an unfortunate waste of time.

Would it have been better if they actually identified the killer? What will happen when the killer strikes again and Malek has to accept that he killed a creepy yet mostly innocent guy? In ways this reminds me of Fallen, another Denzel Washington movie that should have had 30 minutes trimmed off in editing and had a to-be-continued type ending… Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
