Product Description

Samuel L. Jackson and Luke Wilson star in MEETING EVIL, an intense psychological thriller that will bring you face to face with pure terror. Jackson is Richie, a mysterious stranger who shows up at John’s (Wilson) door asking for help with his car. All too soon, the mild-mannered John discovers he has become an unwilling passenger, trapped in a murderous ride through town and deep into the countryside. When Richie decides to pay a visit to John’s wife (Leslie Bibb) and kids, John has no choice but to confront this sadistic and unpredictable killer - But saving his family will ultimately come at a terrible price.

Samuel L. Jackson kicks his trademark brimstone rhetoric into overclock in this bracingly dark thriller, where the line between thought and violent deed is crossed early and often. Adapted from a novel by Thomas Berger (Little Big Man), the film follows a henpecked real estate agent (Luke Wilson) stewing after a long line of very bad days. As he stands on the verge of losing his wife (Leslie Bibb) and kids, his stasis is interrupted via a chance meeting with a mysterious stranger (Jackson) with a habit of permanently squelching anyone who annoys him. Writer-director Chris Fisher (S. Darko) cannily leaves the worst of the physical violence to the imagination of the audience, focusing more on the damaging psychological effects that Jackson has on those in his vicinity. (Bibb, in particular, gets a nasty beauty of a police interrogation scene.) Meeting Evil stumbles a bit, admittedly, with the central casting of Wilson, who convinces in his early scenes, but whose laid-back demeanor can't quite pull off the critical changes the character undergoes as his situation becomes increasingly dire. In Wilson's defense, however, it's difficult to imagine anyone capable of matching up with Jackson when he cranks it to eleven, a state the actor achieves here with hypnotic regularity. Flashing his eyes and moving from purring whisper to scream with jarring randomness, Jackson projects a charismatic menace that infects and amplifies the entire film, even in the moments when he's off-screen. Like all good movie bad guys, it's hard not to wish for a curtain call or two. --Andrew Wright

"The world hurts people John, I come in after the hurt. All I do is kill people who are already dead." John (Wilson) is having a bad day. He didn't sell the house he wanted and lost his job. Just when he thinks it can't get any worse Richie (Jackson) shows up and asks for help with his car. Soon he becomes involved in a murderous rampage that he can't escape from. I have to start by saying that I am not a big Sam Jackson fan at all. To me he really can't act and plays himself in pretty much every movie he does. That said it really works in this movie. Wilson is good as a weak willed man taken in my Jackson's fast talking character. This is a movie where you feel tense almost the entire time and that feeling adds to the excitement of the movie. The movie kept me guessing the entire time and actually had a little twist at the end that I was not expecting. This movie is a little unbelievable but that doesn't hurt the movie at all. I wasn't sure what to expect from this going in and I was very surprised at how much I liked it. Overall, a tense and exciting thriller that is very much worth watching. I liked it. I give it a B+.

5.0 out of 5 stars WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER July 30, 2012
John (Luke Wilson) sells real estate but doesn't sell enough as the bills are mounting. While his wife (Leslie Bibb) is out for a walk, Samuel L. Jackson stops by and through a series of events, John is riding shotgun in a well dressed Jackson's GTO...a man we know has issues. Jackson acts a bit psychotic, confrontational, and criminal, so much so John wants him to take him back home.

John, without his cell phone or wallet, finds himself in the uncomfortable position where he is at the mercy of strangers. (Un)fortunately he meets Tammy, an office affair and the threesome take off down the road in her car. Jackson seems to know more about these people than he should. Jackson seems to have been written as John's alter ego. He is what the meek mild John is holding inside. Only together can they be complete. This becomes apparent when Jackson proclaims, "We are in this together."

The movie ends with a twist, but not one without hints. The movie was good, and a cut above other "B" abduction type films. 4 1/2 stars.

F-bombs, no sex, no nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! -[...] - @tss5078 February 22, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Meeting Evil surprised the hell out of me! When I read the description, I wasn't all that interested, but because Samuel L. Jackson was in it, I figured I'd give it twenty minutes or so, and I'm glad I did! This dark, independent, thriller was one of the most edgy, exciting films I've seen all year. Luke Wilson plays John, a man down on his luck. Suddenly, a stranger comes knocking at his door, and that leads to an unbelievable chain of events that ends with a twist that you will never see coming. Jackson is terrific as always, whether he's the good guy or the bad guy, he's always so entertaining and always manages to call someone racist, I love that! As for his co-star, Luke Wilson, I kept waiting for his character to open up, to have some kind of reaction to what was happening, but he doesn't, still his performance was a strong one. What I really liked about this film was how you really didn't know what was going to happen next. It seems like a small thing, but very few films like this go to such extremes and turn out to be so unpredictable. I can honestly say, when that twist was revealed at the end, I almost fell out of my chair. Yes, Meeting Evil is an independent film, but its better than any thriller that's come out this year. The acting is terrific, the story will have you on the edge of your seat, and just when you think you've got it all figured out, you find out that you don't know a thing. This was a tremendous movie that fell way under the radar, but I found it, and you should most definitely check it out for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars WHEN LUKE MET SAMMY August 18, 2012
MEETING EVIL was pulled from its theatrical release after its opening weekend gross of $181(!!!). While not a classic, I found it entertaining in a quirky sort of way.
Luke Wilson plays a down on his luck realtor who finds himself in financial and marital woes. Samuel L. Jackson shows up at his door and Wilson's troubles have just gotten worse.
Wilson plays the sheepish role with his usual non-chalance, which works better in his comedic roles. A more intense actor like James Franco might have strengthened the movie. I'm not a big fan of Jackson, who always seems to play the same role in all his films. His villainy in MEETING EVIL isn't totally convincing. We needed a Michael C. Hall or Michael Douglas---a different kind of menace, Leslie Bibb is pretty effective as Wilson's assertive spouse and Tracie Thoms (TV's COLD CASE) is surprisingly good as one of the skeptical cops. Peyton List (TV's FLASH FORWARD) and Muse Watson (NCIS) are okay in under-developed roles.
The ending is rather anti-climactic which is disappointing, but MEETING EVIL is a modest time-waster.

Anything with Samuel L Jackson, I just have to see. He is so versatile in which you never know what to expect. He is a very evil man in this movie. I would recommend this movie.

Yeah unfortunately other than Samuel L. Jackson's explosive performance there is just plain nothing to be gained from sitting through this highly underwhelming waste of time. Read more
