Audience Reviews for Playing God

  • Aug 31, 2012
    The crime drama Playing God is a noir style film full of mystery and intrigue. The story follows Eugene Sands, a former surgeon that gets drawn into the life of a mob doctor, but soon finds that he's gotten in too deep. David Duchovny, Timothy Hutton, Angelina Jolie, and Peter Stormare form a solid cast and give good performances. Hutton is especially good at delivering the dark comedy, and creates a charismatic and fun villain. However, the directing is weak and hurts the film to a degree. Playing God is a flawed film, but still manages to deliver a compelling and entertaining thriller.

    I enjoyed this film, more than I expected, " Jolie" reprises her acting at the level we first had a glimpse of in "True Woman".

    This is a decent crime thriller. The movie stars David Duchovny, Timothy Hutton and Angelina Jolie. Duchovny plays a doctor who loses his medical license when he becomes addicted to amphetamines. But he soons finds a new job by chance to be a doctor again for a local crime syndicate. They want him to be their doctor on call. They supply him money and the amphetamines as the price. Of course he goes over his head with this and has the feds and crime syndictae on his back. Duchovny is solid as the lead hero. I liked his character. Timothy Hutton is great as the crime syndicate boss. Jolie has a small role in the movie but still good in the role. The movie story is decent and entertaining. A bit choppy and rushed at times. And some of the scenes of the film tries to be like a Snatch or Boondocks Saints movie. I remember a interview with Duchovny who said a love scene with Jolie was taken out of the story. He said it didn't make sense for the film. She was healing from a gun shot wound and he was fighting his addiction from drugs. It would not have made sense. He has a point. Overall though I enjoyed the movie. It could have been done a little better but it entertained me. Worth at least a one time watch.
