Catch .44 (2011)

My Rating

Movie Info

For Tes (Akerman) and her two cohorts Kara (Nikki Reed) and Tara (Deborah Ann Woll), the job sounded simple enough: intercept a double-cross drug shipment for their crime boss Mel (Willis) at an isolated diner. But when an unstoppable chain of events unfolds, everyone soon realizes no one is who they seem and the job may be something other than eliminating the competition. What started as simple instructions has now turned into a deadly cat-and-mouse game - with large guns pointed at everyone.

A drug-deal tale featuring top-drawer actors trying to have fun with a medium-strength script. Sometimes they succeed, but not often enough to elevate the film to "Pulp Fiction" territory.

Although it gives Willis and Whitaker an off-road chance to show off their character-actor chops, there's not much to recommend in this cinematic conceit.

A collection of all the Quentin Tarantino mannerisms we make fun of ... but none of the understanding of human nature that goes along with them.

Audience Reviews for Catch .44

Catch .44 was just a blah of a movie. Their isn't anything to love in this movie. It was quite unimpressive. The way it's told was a bit annoying and predictable. I like Nikki Reed in this which is unfortunate since she doesn't last very long. Forest Whitaker as Ronny was a joke. I couldn't take his accent serious. It sounded so silly. Even Bruce's character was over the top. I just found the film silly and forgettable. Nothing to see here folks!

Odd title but familiar film with Willis taking part in another Tarantino-ish outing that does leave you feeling somewhat disappointed.

When I say Tarantino-ish I mean the plot is basically cut up and all over the show. We start at the end and work backwards with flashbacks aplenty to find out what happens. Thing is we never really discover the whole point behind most of it (only some characters) and frankly I didn't much care either.

The plot revolves around a trio of women (terrible casting and boring performances) whom I'm guessing are suppose to be sexy drug dealing associates of Willis (epic fail there). They are to wait in a diner and pick up a shipment but they are setup and everything goes tits up (yawn!). The problem is these characters aren't developed in any way and don't last too long either, so you aren't given the chance to like them and simply aren't bothered when the shit hits the fan.

The other characters are a mixed bunch that include Willis who is badly miscast as a drug dealing kingpin, Whitaker as a associate of Willis, acts well as usual but has this really annoying Spanish accent (I think it was Spanish) and Dourif in a cameo really. He isn't really important in any way, no point him even being there.

The setup and shootout that happens at the start (which is the end) is the best part. When you see it you wanna know what happens next but instead you are fed about 1h 20mins of flashbacks showing what happened before and how it all led up to the shootout, which isn't very interesting. So in short the finale stand off is the best bit where as the rest of the film is uninspired and dull with drab acting.

If your going down, take everyone with you.

Waste of time! Just bad everything. I think this might be Bruce Willis worst movie ever, what are you doing Bruce? The story is just idiotic.. Don't waste your time people!

For Tes (Akerman) and her two cohorts Kara (Nikki Reed) and Dawn (Deborah Ann Woll), the job sounded simple enough: intercept a double-cross drug shipment for their crime boss Mel (Willis) at an isolated diner. But when an unstoppable chain of events unfolds, everyone soon realizes no one is who they seem and the job may be something other than eliminating the competition.

A dark, shady and slick western style film noir that echos with Puilp Fiction. A sharp, twisty, stylish and tension-packed crime-thriller and has all barrels blazing with slick dialouge, blistering suspense and great character development. It`s edgy, darkly funny and packed with a full-clip of mayhem. It shines with layers of a Tarantino and The Usual Suspects. Bruce Willis and Forest Whitaker are excellent, they get to show off some impressive and fun character work with their great performances. Willis has fun with his crime boss role and Whitaker shows some great depth to his lonely hitman role. Malin Akerman is brilliant, sexy and fantastic. She`s an outstanding actress who has a bright future. A wildly entertaining and twistedly original thrill-ride that`s shocking, exciting and really fun.
