Audience Reviews for The Local
A gritty, under acted, slight let down. It's a good movie and had a decent plot but with a plot line it had, felt like there should of been more action.
Oh my God I just watched what is easily the best movie of 09. I had no idea the film I was watching was written, directed, and produced by the main guy in the film. I haven`t gotten a rush like this since The Departed. Move over Tarantino, out of the way Ritchie, look out Scorsese. I can`t believe I am writing the first review of this film. What are you people watching out there. This guy deserves to be nominated for a bunch of Oscars. Why isn`t Hollywood throwing money at this guy too make more movies, that I can watch. How come Dan`s not in France getting the Palme d`Or already. This is a great example of film making at its finest. Its amazing and you have to watch it. The Local will make you go Local. MOVIE DICK OVER AND OUT
Dan Eberle plays the good guy having to do bad things to survive. You cannot help but want him to live and find a better life. Finally he has a chance to save a girl and get her back to her father. To do so he must do more bad things. I kept thinking that Dan would be a great choice for a new Billy Jack film. Rumor was that a script was in the making a coupe years ago. On the down side: Way too much swearing and tough-guy machismo from some of the other characters. The F bombs just start to become tiresome. Dan E. pulls this film out of the quagmire by his character. Great job Dan. dd
