Critic Reviews for Default
Resourceful, Los Angeles-shot low-budgeter is solidly assembled, with Xander Lott's unobtrusive yet unsettling score a plus.
Brand devotes so much running time to fear-mongering and grotesque stereotypes that a last-ditch effort at moral ambiguity and a critique on muckraking barely register.
Even the failure to find a persuasive closing note doesn't detract from Mr. Oyelowo's riveting performance.
Brand works hard at verisimilitude on the plane and in the film's many intercut cable-news segments, but it's hard to achieve realism in a mode that's so completely contrived.
Setting itself apart from a crowded field of Somali pirate movies is a goal "Default" reaches for, but in choosing meaningless action over all else it's never achieved.
