It takes a vitally serious subject and makes such a relentlessly dumb hash of it.
The film's third act, featuring standard-issue gunfights and car chases, is too poorly staged to be remotely exciting.
The entertainment value's low in this pointed crime thriller, which saves its action sequences until right before the closing credits.
The acting is stiff, the pacing sluggish, the framing uncertain, the music an intrusive mush and the scenario schematic.
While it'll likely be overshadowed by The Hate U Give, River Runs Red is a hugely important film. The themes it explores, and the way it imparts them, make it a vital (albeit austere) piece of social commentary.
Bloody violence, strong language in weak revenge thriller.
... doesn't adequately articulate the moral complexities in its provocative subject matter, instead transitioning into a clichéd vigilante thriller.
A mismatched trio of stars (John Cusack, Taye Diggs and George Lopez) stumble through this hackneyed drama about a police shooting of an unarmed young black man.
