Editorial Reviews

From The Executive Producers of MACHETE and TRUE GRIT

Bruce Willis, Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Nikki Reed (The TWILIGHT Saga), Deborah Ann Woll (''True Blood'') and Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) star in the tough, sexy story of three hit women sent to rural Louisiana to intercept a big money dope deal. But when they get to the near-empty roadside café, bullets blast apart what was supposed to be a simple transaction. It could be a huge, bloody misunderstanding but it might also be a deadly double-cross. Shea Whigham (''Boardwalk Empire'') and Academy Award® nominee Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) co-star in this intense crime thriller with a killer twist.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pass December 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
CATCH .44 is a dark, slow moving, thuddingly dull film. Written and Directed with Aaron Harvey it is a film borrowed from so many previous movies about drug dealing, double crossing, attempts at being clever without success, and near constant killing (no, slaughter by gunfire would be a more appropriate word.

The basically behind the scenes Mel (Bruce Willis, who appears to need a new agent to get some appropriate new material for him to chew) sets up a drug interception using three girls with whom he has successfully worked before - Tes (Malin Ackerman), Dawn (Deborah Ann Woll) and Kara (Nikki Reed) - this time making the interception at a diner in the middle of nowhere. Of course there is a lot of girl talk about their mission, an interruption by a madman Ronny (Forest Whitaker) who earlier has murdered a sheriff and poses then as the sheriff to add to the mess. At the diner things just progress from bad to unbelievable, as nearly everyone is brutally murdered and it all ends in a reduced cast (many are dead by now) cat and mouse game that is as dull as yesterday's lunch.
There are some night at the gas station scenes a la Ed Ruscha by cinematographer Jeff Cutter that are artsy, but the rest of the film is a waste of talent. It makes us wonder how tough it is for actors of the caliber of Forest Whitaker and Bruce Willis to turn up some worthwhile material that takes advantage of their skills instead of these blood bath bores they seem to be accepting as scripts. No real saving graces to this film. Grady Harp, December 11

I had heard and read so many scathingly critical comments flung at writer/director Aaron Harvey's "Catch .44" that I was convinced it must surely be a disaster of epic proportion. I'm not sure what anyone else anticipates when sitting down to a straight-to-DVD endeavor, but my expectations tend to run fairly low. Thus, I was actually pleasantly surprised by this film. I found it quite entertaining in its own right with a number of noteworthy performances. Harvey shows a deft hand when handling dialogue and that ends up being a saving grace to the movie. My fundamental issue with the production has little to do with entertainment value and almost everything to do with originality. Like so many young filmmakers, Harvey clearly aspires to be the next Tarantino (and why not?), but "Catch .44" is so derivative that it begs to be judged in an unfavorable light. Even the DVD packaging references the sublime "Reservoir Dogs." I could forgive the similarities in structure and theme such as the chronologically scrambled narrative, overlapping timelines, the eclectic assortment of outlaws, and the clever/cool conversations that have little to do with the plot. But from moment to moment, every sequence in the film seems to have been lifted from another movie and cobbled together. Seriously. For every individual scene, I could name a comparable scene that served the same purpose from an earlier and similar movie.

Taking that out of the equation for a moment, I actually thought the film was successful enough. Despite the presence of Bruce Willis in a minor role (though you'd never guess that from his huge head on the DVD cover), the actual lead of "Catch. 44" is up-and-comer Malin Akerman.

"I worked with you for seven years...always liked you, always looked after you, but I never trusted you." Tess (Akerman) and her friends have one simple task. Meet a trucker at a restaurant and take the truck from him. Things do not go as planned and secrets begin to come out, as well as bullets. This movie was a surprise. After watching "Set-up" with Bruce Willis (who was in it for about 5 minutes) I was skeptical. While he is not the main star in this one either this one actually is a pretty good movie. This movie reminded me a lot of "Pulp Fiction" in the way that it jumps back and forth all the time until you have every part of the story. Akerman and Whitaker do a great job in this and for someone like Malin Akerman to take a role in an action movie and pull it off as good as she does is also a surprise. While not a top notch action movie this one is still very much worth while and will not let you down. Overall, a very good movie that is well worth your time. I give it a B+.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a horrible movie December 1, 2011
This movie was briefly, and i do mean briefly, available on PSN, as a see it before it hits theaters. Oddly enough, it comes out on DVD about 11 days after the theatrical release. I'm confused. This is another train wreck of a film, much like Trespass with Nick Cage and Nicole Kidman. Only this time we have Bruce Willis as a head con man, Forest Whitaker as another con artist/killer, and Malin Akerman whom i only know from 27 dresses. Two big name stars, one an Oscar winner, the other an action icon. This is Bruces second "stinker" straight to DVD (the first being Setup), and now Forest has jumped on board?!! Come on. This movie takes itself to seriously and can't decide whether it wants to be a dark comedy, drama, or crime action thriller. It succeeds at being none of the above. Just feels that the story was thrown together in 10 minutes, the script seems to be read line by line, and the plot is just plain stupid. Although it tries to be clever. I give up on most of the stars i grew up with. I love all of the ones i listed and can't figure out "why" their movies are being snuffed out. I really have nothing else to say about this film, so as not to spoil it. But it's just more gun play, drugs, sex, and cursing, thrown together for a quick flick. Believe me, most of the films on PSN, or Xbox 360 that say see it before it hits theaters. There is a reason for that. :) 88% of fans want to see it according to Rotten Tomatoes, that will be a LOT of disappointed folks.

Btw:Bruces character "Mel" may remind you of the similar part he played in The Whole Nine Yards, but don't let this fool you. It's not even close to that. Also he looks horrid, like he lost about 50lbs. Lets hope he picks up at the box office before the end of 2012. :d

It wasn't worth the $4.99, more of a $2.99 flick, just to see the chemistry with Willis and his co-star. I didn't want to finish it.
