"The Power of Few" (2013 release; 95 min.) brings the same 20 min. in an early afternoon in New Orleans, but brought from multiple (five, actually) perspectives, and how these intersecting stories play out/touch on each other/collide (literally). Given that you watch the "same" 20 minutes five times over the course of the movie, there is no point in even trying to bring an introduction of the movie's plot. Let's just say that blood WILL be spilled at this particular New Orleans intersection.
Several comments: it's amazing what an all-star cast is attached to this movie, starting of course with Christopher Walken as a homeless man with a secret. I don't recall ever having seen Walken so scrungy looking. Then there is Christian Slater as the undercover agent (along with his partner, played by up-and-coming Australian actress Nicky Whelan), trying to recover a mysterious package. We also have rapper Juvenile as one of the gangsters, and Q'orianka Kilcher as the messenger (and also co-producer AND contributing several songs to the very pleasant movie soundtrack). But the key figure is the title character Few (played by newcomer Tione Johnson), a candy-obsessed young lady who isn't feeling so good from eating all that candy while walking home, and who decides to hitch a ride home, unintentionally finding herself at the center of this movie. This is the long-feature debut of writer-director Leone Marucci.Read more ›
In fact, top-billed Christopher Walken is only in about one fifth of the movie. "The Power of Few" mainly consists of five separate narratives about characters played by, besides Walken, Jordan Prentice, Devon Gearhart, Moon Bloodgood, Christian Slater, Nicky Whelan, Anthony Anderson, Q'orianka Kilcher and Jesse Bradford. Five different narrative threads about people experiencing (or who experienced) violent things - secret operatives looking for something, a delivery girl helping out a young man running away from local gangsters, and so on.
While on TV Larry King (played by himself) discusses a stolen religious artifact, these threads eventually converge towards the end in a not so intriguing fashion. Actually, there is another thread about a little girl who plays an important role in wrapping up the entire storyline. The idea has potential, but with each narrative that is too weak and uninteresting, she arrives a bit too late.
Writer/director Leone Marucci is good at handling the film's crime-related section involving shootings and tortures, but the rest of the film is pretty dull with uninspired dialogue. This is strictly for the avid fans of the stars.
