Audience Reviews for Homeboy

  • Sep 04, 2014
    For what it's worth, the film does capture the essence of being down on your luck and wandering, and for that, I kind of like it. The plot is as simple as they come, the shots are unremarkable yet occasionally very pretty, the dialogue is trite, but the film amounts to something when it's through. There's a rare moment of brilliance here, but it's usually obscured by the amount of pretense onscreen. Should you watch? Eh. Mickey Rourke and Christopher Walken have above average performances.
