Critic Reviews for No Good Deed
It's an absorbing, atmospheric noir with nice little touches.
This undermarketed noir suffers because many of its characters don't seem to belong in the same universe.
... just a ridiculous story that layers one ridiculous, silly, contrivance after another.
For all the talent on screen, no one has much chemistry.
Audience Reviews for No Good Deed
Samuel L. Jackson plays a cop who works in grand theft auto, but decides to help a grieving neighbor by finding her runaway daughter, believed to be with a boyfriend on Turk Street. He stumbles on a gang of bank robbers who takes him hostage because they think they've been discovered. The elements include the mastermind and ruthless gangster, a femme fatale , and rude maniac hit-man. Milla Jovovich as Erin does a good job of playing a femme fatale and is highly believable in her role as a woman who plays all the men against each other. Doug Hutchinson of The Green Mile makes a great Hoop and was very convincing. Stellan Skarsgård as Tyrone is the boss and mastermind. His biggest task seems to be holding everything together and breaking up fights among his hang of misfits. Fairly watchable.
No Good Deed is very reminiscent of your stereotypical 90's cops and robbers drama. It's fun, but there's' not much more you can say about it. The film unfolded in a very linear pattern and each character was stereotypical... nothing surprising. I found my man Samuel L Jackson to be a little flat, as well as Jovovich. They seemed bored... but she still some how managed to find her way topless in front of the camera. Stellan Skarsgard however was exceptional.... If you're a fan of either of those 3, definitely give this film a shot. Or if you're interested in a typical cops and robbers movie, check it out.
THe only good thing about this one was the Sam Jackson played a hardcore cello.
