Critic Reviews for The Power Of Few
The picture... can't be said to break any new ground in the gritty, mean-streets genre. But it has a better-than-average cast and a few clever plot twists, and it ends up being an occasionally amusing time-killer.
A ham-fisted, timeline-altering variety pack of crime set in New Orleans.
The Power of Few still feels very "independent" and, more importantly, original. Even if its cast is filled with well-known actors, the film embraces risky, unconventional storytelling.
I had never heard of screenwriter/director Leone Marucci before. But you can bet I will remember his name after seeing 'The Power of Few.'
A jumbled, offbeat mash-up of conspiracy-tinged action and armchair philosophizing that is hamstrung by a strange combination of slapdash plotting and its own self-importance.
Audience Reviews for The Power Of Few
Remember the name Leone Marucci... thanks to his directing, writing and producing we got this delightful to watch work of art. Of course, I cannot skip the outstanding performance of the cast teaturing Christopher Walken, Christian Slater, Kilcher, Anthony Anderson, Jesse Bradford, Moon Bloodgood, Nicky Whelan, Devon Gearhart, Juvenile, Navid Negahban, Jordan Prentice, and Derek Richardson.
Through The Power of Few website, Marucci and Kilcher developed and delivered a ground breaking interactive experience embarked upon in 2006. From online casting to online editing, the global audience was provided original material from the film (and an online editing system) and the final look of the film was created by the audience! The amazing project had few other aces up its sleeve: the production ran an extensive community outreach program in the city of New Orleans during filming! Amazing and different way of "doing business" and we should all follow the example.
This independent action/drama is managing for 95 minutes to keep us entertained and makes us think at the same time while we all enjoy the acting, directing and excellent music (composed by Mike Simpson). Tasty and refreshing.
The Power of Few was like some of those Lifetime movies that manage start out as intriguing, but then seems to go nowhere, yet you continue watch thinking it may pull back together - but it never does. In the end it just feels like it was trying really hard to make a profound point and though you're not sure what that was you don't really care, you're just glad it's finally over. More often than not, that's how I respond to any of the movies where intertwining lives of several characters over a short period are depicted. I'm sure someone who tends to like that type of movie would appreciate it more than I did.
