Samuel L. Jackson (S.W.A.T., Basic, XXX), Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil, The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc), Stellan Skarsgard (The Glass House, Ronin), and Doug Hutchinson (The Green Mile, The Salton Sea) star in this pulse-pounding crime thriller based on a work by Dashiell Hammett and directed by the acclaimed Oscar(r) 1970, Five Easy Pieces, best picture nominee Bob Rafelson (Five Easy Pieces, Blood and Wine). A missing persons investigation escalates into a deadly game of cat and mouse when detective Jack (Jackson) is captured and held hostage by a gang of brutal thieves in the process of an elaborate bank robbery. Cruel mastermind Tyrone (Skarsgard), manipulative girlfriend Erin (Jovovich), and deranged henchman Hoop (Hutchinson) are locked in a dangerous web of deceit, double-cross and romantic intrigue, making Jack a pawn in the lethal high stakes plot. Against all odds,Erin and Jack find themselves erotically drawn to each other, igniting a volatile love triangle tha
Echoes of The Maltese Falcon reverberate through No Good Deed, a loose, updated adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's kidnapped-cop tale The House on Turk Street. Unfortunately, the film proves an interesting disaster at best, certain to leave fans of noir director Bob Rafelson (Blood and Wine) wondering what happened. Samuel L. Jackson plays lonely police detective and amateur cellist Jack Friar, whose search for a missing girl results in being taken captive by a motley gang of dreamers, lost souls, and psychopaths on the eve of a bank heist. Left alone with an armed but sympathetic, Russian-classical-pianist-turned-femme-fatale (Milla Jovovich), Jack finds someone to save. But the film's credulity is lost when Rafelson fails to convince us that Jack's honor-bound refusal to escape, despite a prime opportunity while nuzzling the defenseless Milla, is a good and honorable thing. One can feel authentic Hammett themes stirring here, but it's not enough. --Tom Keogh
