The acting is not bad, but the film is ill-conceived

A wonderfully acted, finely-crafted project that deserves our attention.

Lift is a worthy film that has something to say when it lets the action speak for itself, but when it starts speaking about the action -- the film feels tired.

The stuff about the three generations with the family, and the big drama, and the gang stuff that comes up, none of that worked for me, so I have to give it thumbs down.

Washington's performance is bold, as is a surprisingly powerful Barbara Montgomery as Niecy's grandmother.

Often incoherent and disappointingly lacking in insights beyond the obvious.
