This is the kind of material that can't be elevated without help from behind the camera. Instead, the actors are left to gesture aimlessly through a stupefacient fog of clichés and insipid direction.
"Term Life" is cleanly plotted and tautly paced, but it's never as fun as it should be.
An asinine movie that has the premise for a thriller, the tone of a half-hearted neo-noir, and the plot of a daddy-daughter dramedy.
It's a wannabe noir with no atmosphere, and a waste of a talented cast by a director who really has no idea what to do with them.
... a clichéd noir wannabe script that manages only some meager laughs amid the generic shootouts and chase sequences.
This labored, failed thriller feels like a collection of odd puzzle pieces that don't fit but have been nonetheless forced together. Even the great cast members seem squeezed into the wrong roles.
A mess, and a seemingly needless one, watching a larger tale of survival pointlessly whittled down to fragments of reason to make the feature play as fast as possible.
