Editorial Reviews

A best-selling novelist (Scott Caan of Ocean s Eleven) one-night stands his way through LA until he finally meets his match with Mercy (beautiful newcomer Wendy Glenn), a book critic who calls his bluff in this powerful romance that Caan wrote, produced and stars in. Featuring Dylan McDermott ( The Practice ), Erika Christensen (Oscar- winning Traffic, TV s Parenthood) and directed by fashion photographer superstar Patrick Hoelck in his film debut, Mercy is a riveting drama. It s also a memorable moment of cinematic history when rising Hollywood star Scott Caan shares the screen with his legendary father James Caan (The Godfather). Their combustible scene together is the beating heart of this bittersweet look at lost love.

There are few times in my life anymore that I find myself touched deeply on very basic and guttural level by movies or television. That I remain impacted hours, days and weeks later. It's been a very, very long time since something has captured my interest so keenly that I sat glued to my television as it played out before me. Since something has made me incapable of looking away, wondering about what seemed at first to be a lovely romance story, but turned into a tale that took my breath away.

"Mercy" did just that.

The no-nonsense realism and exploration of human relationships is refreshing and honest. Whether examining what happens between father and son, male friends who are quite different from one another, or men and women in both sex and relationships, Scott Caan manages to weave it all together so we care about these people. To say it's a character study is almost beneath the quality of both writing and acting in this film.

There is much more to say, but to do so would be to expose too much of what made this a truly unforgettable foray for me, not into Hollywood magic...but into the very soul of men. I truly hope Mr. Caan's work on "Hawaii Five-O" will not keep him from making more of his brand of magic...from giving us his smile, his laughter, his tears and his beautiful ability to write in such a way it's likely to sneak up and sucker-punch you right where it counts.

I highly recommend you see "Mercy." You'll come out of it maybe with a few tears, but you'll also be a better person for your efforts.

I was fascinated by this movie. If you look at it deeply, there are some thought-provoking themes and ideas running through it. I thought the artistic crafting was impressive, too. I liked that John Ryan didn't have a perfect life. Rather, he struggled with challenges that many of us face and reacted like a true human, succeeding, then falling back, then struggling forward a little more. Like real life, not a pat 2-hour solution in which the hero overcomes. I like real people.

I was surprised by the film - I have only seen Scott Caan's work in his bigger Hollywood productions in which he kind of plays shades of the same character. Here you see a different side of him, with a level of vulnerability that is credible and not overplayed. Two of the scenes with James Caan stood out as really powerful. The supporting cast showed up and came to play. Dylan McDermitt and Erika Christensen stood out with fun and engaging performances. In terms of the story, it was well written, well paced, and kept my attention throughout. Was it predictable? Yes, although there was a pretty good misdirect in the film. I hope we get to see more of this kind of work from Scott Caan.

I thought Scott Cannon (Danny Willaims on Hawwia 5-0)did an amazing job in this movie. Sure at times it was sad but still very good. It was nice to see him as a lead actor in a movie and not just as a supporting cast. I bought this movie and Im so happy I did. I would watch it again. It was also good seeing Ericka Chirisetein (Parenthood)in something new. If you like Scott Cannon as much as me I think you would enjoy this movie.

Mercy took me by surprise. I enjoyed the twist of a familiar story of a jaded man, a romance author in this case, who actually finds love in his best critic. I found the movie believable and sincere despite others' more skeptical reviews concerning the ending. The editing was well done, aiding in the viewer's suspensful realization of an ending that the characters already know. The movies begins at the end and whirls around the viewer, dropping hints and building the characters as the storyline progresses. Unlike some who like to guess endings as a movie begins, I like surprises and prefer to let a movie (or book, play, etc) take me there, which may be why I enjoyed it much more than those who rated the movie poorly.

Excellent movie. Very real. Has that independent film feel, so if thats not your thing, nor is true love... Then you may not enjoy it as much.

Very emotional, pulls you in. As a Scott Caan fan I would recommend it to anyone. This shows that he is a very talented actor.

As far as plot goes, this one is a little melodramatic and cliched, but the cast is so fantastic that it still makes the movie worth watching. Scott Caan especially created a very likable, earnest leading man, and Troy Garity is equally enjoyable. I found the love story to be a little hokey, but for this movie it is more of a means to the end for Johnny's (Caan) maturity.
