Critic Reviews for Meeting Evil
Writer-director Chris Fisher flirts with over-the-top exaggeration so often during Meeting Evil that auds might wish he'd gone all the way and dialed everything up to 11.
It features tons of poor decisions, from the overwrought and intrusive musical score to bad-joke one liners from the main characters down to the supporting ones. The worst decision either actor made was actually appearing in this awful film.
A cheap slasher flick with some talented actors masking the banality with clever dialogue...
...just another hopelessly incompetent direct-to-video thriller...
If you don't mind style over substance, a bit of the old cat-and-mouse, and you enjoy watching Samuel L. Jackson making people squirm, then hop in, strap up, and hold on.
Audience Reviews for Meeting Evil
While it has an interesting story, Meeting Evil fails in its execution. After losing his job John Felton is picked up by a mysterious stranger and unwittingly drawn into his killing spree. Luke Wilson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Leslie Bibb lead the cast, and their performances are decent enough for the material. However, the characters are rather one-dimensional and aren't developed that much. Still, the plot has some intrigue and goes in a few unexpected directions (though it's not able to maintain suspense for very long). Meeting Evil has its moments, but is oddly mundane for a noir thriller.
A family man John Fleton (Luke Wilson) down and out on his luck, with his job and his relationship with his wife Joanie (Leslie Bibb) opens his door to a stranger in need of help for car trouble named Richie (Samuel L. Jackson) . Little did he know that his generosity in doing so would lead him to become entangled into Richie's lunatic violent killing spree. If Morgan Freeman can portray being God so well Samuel can sure play the devil when it comes down to insane dealings with morality. Richie has John so shaken up that he is forced to decide what acts he has to commit in order to maintain his sanity as well as protect his family. Pretty good suspenseful movie.
"This reminded me of the movie "Hit List", that I just watched recently. (This review will be full of spoilers. So if this is something you wanted to watch, then please do skip reading this.) The outcome is pretty similar too. Hit man comes to kill husband. Husband doesn't know, thinks he's stumbled upon a friend then WHAM!!! Surprise! He starts randomly killing people. Oh, and this guy has a mistress too. Except in the other movie, the wife had the something on the side. So the movie goes on with the 'Hit Man' killing spree until finally John-the husband, is taken home with psycho wifey with cops there to protect them from the 'Hit Man'. Of course we all know the 'Hit Man' is going to show up and start mayhem. So mayhem comes and it is revealed that, SURPRISE! Psycho wifey wanted you dead. So what does said husband do? Fights 'Hit Man' until he's dead then gets into bed with crazy wifey like shit didn't happen at all. WTF is wrong with the writer of these films? Who the hell is going to get into bed with the crazy bitch who had hired someone to kill them? Just crap. I can't believe I watched two movies doing the same shit. Pure garbage and the waste of talented actors like Samuel L. Jackson and Luke Wilson."
