Great movie and plot.
I. Alamo
I fault the movie (actually the first half) because it reminded me too much of Misery.

***CONTAINS MIDPOINT PLOT SPOILER***

Tommy (Anthony Macke) has an NDE (near death experience) in the first scene and becomes an author and "life coach." He has a beautiful wife (Sanaa Lathan) and an older brother who just got out of prison (Mike Epps). Angel (Forest Whitaker) takes Lithium and has visions of his dead mother. He hires Tommy to be his life coach to help him out which eventually becomes "Misery." The film goes full circle as the therapist gets therapy.

I liked the basic plot outline, I wasn't thrilled with the execution. I kept imagining how much better this film would have been with Samuel L. Jackson as the antagonist. Forest needed to look more bipolar. I found myself waiting for the movie to pick up and once it did, it changed the direction of the film which caught me off guard.

Will work as a rental.

Maybe its because its a psycho-thriller, and you have to have some semblance of thought and imagination, that made people rate this low but the acting was really good along with the story line. No need for a macabre, blood and gore filled 1.5 hours to keep your attention the actors were believable. I gave it a five because it did what most films cannot less the nudity and violence. If that's your thing this is not for you but if you enjoy a film suitable for all this is it.

In this case, the darkness is within Forest Whitaker's character, Angel. A man who has lost his grip on his sanity since the death of his mother. Anthony Mackie plays Thomas Carter, a self-help guru who tries to break down the walls in Angel's life so that he can be a more productive being. However, it seems that these two are connected in a way that only Angel's knows. It's a psycho-thriller that I couldn't turn away from, until the end, which irked me off. I don't like endings that don't complete movies. Still, it was a thriller that I completely enjoyed!

I was totally surprised by the movie. I heard about it, but did not see it in theaters. Forrest Whitaker was so good in this movie, I was o pins and needles throughout. This is the type of movie that you watch straight through. You don't want to miss a minute of it.

Trigger Warning(s): Torture Scenes

When it comes to some actors, there is just a go to style which seems to fit them well. For Will Smith, it is the likeable and approachable Black guy; Denzel Washington, as of late, recycles his Training Day persona; and then there is Forest Whitaker who usually plays off putting characters. This one is no different but, with a character which reminded me of Kathy Bates in Misery, the question is whether his portrayal as Angel was good, or just another awkward character of his to write off?

Characters & Story

A man with mental issues named Angel (Forest Whitaker) has lost his mom; his wife, to a point; and now all he has is his house and daughter. So needless to say, he is troubled. But there is one man he believes can help him: that man is Tommy Carter (Anthony Mackie) whose self-help book dealing with his brush with death seems to have had a profound effect on Angel. But as Angel reveals his demons, Tommy finds himself facing off with them and his own which involve wife Maggie (Sanaa Lathan), as well as Ben (Mike Epps). Leaving us with a film which makes it seem that Tommy may have taken on Angel's problems a bit too lightly.

Praise

As always, Whitaker playing an unnerving character just fits. It pretty much has been his signature, to me anyway, since Jason's Lyric in the 90s. And in this movie he is not only off putting, but a bit frightening as well. Arguably, Whitaker could probably play, with the right script, an iconic fictional villain again and perhaps set a precedent people would be trying to match for years. Though, it should be noted, the rest of the cast surely isn't slacking. Mackie hold his own against Whitaker and does attempt to compete for intensity.

This movie wasn't bad at all. It had some good parts, funny parts, and strange parts to it. I only gave it 3 stars because it didn't hold my attention as I expected it to. I was fine pausing it, going to do something, and then coming back to it. As a matter of fact, I did that several times and almost didn't finish the movie before the 24 hour rental time was up.

What Happened? I only heard one shot. You have to see the movie to understand what I mean. I enjoyed the movie until the end, which ruined it for me. Good acting by Anthony Mackie and a solid role by Forest Whitaker as always. A little more brutal than necessary, but that is the trend today. A psychological thriller sort of like "Misery". A life coach (analyst) Antony Mackie attempts to make some extra money to pay off his brothers debts by taking on a mentally troubled man as a client. When his brother says he doesn't need his help, he attempts to cancel his sessions with his client. His client, Forest Whitaker, doesn't take it to well and the tables turn.
