Director Kevan Funk presents an occasionally powerful, if slow-moving and overlong meditation on violence and toxic masculinity.
The tragic cliché of the heroic hockey enforcer is explored with art and impact in this powerful feature debut by Vancouver writer/director Kevan Funk.
This isn't a traditional hockey film. In a sense, it's not a hockey film at all. Hello Destroyer shoots for more: A story of alienation, and of youth rudely interrupted and lost in the machine.
Hello Destroyer reminds us of a sad truth; for some players, there are no glory days.
[Hello Destroyer] is constructed sturdily enough to stand up to any forthcoming scrutiny, and maybe also built to last in a way that most feature debuts simply are not.
Hello Destroyer is a hockey movie where the drama is not in the game, but in how its violence has consequences that ripple off the ice.
Terse and devastating.
Flin Flon-born actor Abrahamson nails it. He may not have many lines, but he also never has a false moment. He breaks your heart with a macho stoicism that ultimately cannot withstand a relentless assault of callous indifference.
Writer/director Funk's first feature after a series of solid shorts -- including 2013's Destroyer, which contained the seeds of this film -- is a strong debut, if a little heavy-handed.
