Nick is a low level drug dealer who has settled down, gotten married, and now lays low. He is unhappily married with a complex relationship. One day he, an ex-girlfriend, and a hitman foil a robbery and shoot the clerk. Nick becomes paranoid and when he discovers his ex-girlfriend has a bunch of dope, he flushes it down the toilet. That leads to a pist-off supplier, customers, and a rogue police officer. Nick's situation couldn't get much worse.
"I do love you, but you're boring the shit out of me."
Skip Woods delivers Thursday in his directorial debut. The storyline for this picture feels a little like True Romance mixed with Savages. There is a cool sense of style mixed with violence and charismatic characters throughout this film. The acting is fun and fits the content well. The cast includes Thomas Jane, Aaron Eckhart, Mickey Rourke, Paulina, Porizkova, and Paula Marshall.
"They got the wrong house!"
Thursday is a movie I came across while looking at recommendations on Netflix. I am a huge Mickey Rourke fan (he has a bit part) and Thomas Jane usually makes entertaining flicks. This was a fun stylistic movie that has some unique elements; but much like Savages, trips over itself in a few scenes. Overall, I do recommend seeing this film, but I wouldn't add it to my DVD collection.
It felt too mechanical. The acting was off. Nobody pulled off their roles except for Rourke, and Porizkova came close.
It's like Tarantino came up with an outline for a movie. The Helen Keller filled in the details, including casting.
I am really on the fence with this one but I just can't quite recommend it. I found it to be interesting but there were just one too many coincidences and characters that pop out of nowhere that made me roll my eyes. I will probably take a second look at this in the near future but this is where I stand right now.
