Critic Reviews for Black Moon Rising
It all gets off to a cracking start, only to dwindle very rapidly into thin and predictable variations on the formulaic ploys.
Cokliss's direction strains for a stylishness it doesn't achieve, yet his fundamentally straightforward style brings out the abstract design of the plot.
It took three screenplay writers to concoct this rather unamazing action-thriller about cars, thieves, and dirty tricks.
Entirely forgettable car chase flick.
