Sam Jackson script review

03.19.2002

It's time for another Honest Abe script review.  My favorite kind of updates because my work is primarily writing one of these dopey intro sentences and that's it.  I can't believe I get paid for this somedays....Oh, wait.   I don't get paid for this.  That sounds about right.  Here's Abe...

NO GOOD DEED (Positive with minor spoilers)
A script review by Honest Abe

Samuel Jackson stars as a good cop having a bad day. He's Jack, a grizzled veteran who's about to take his first vacation in years. Being the good guy that he is, he agrees to check out the disappearance of a friend's daughter, just before he leaves town. Well, it's the classic case of mixed up information as he's sent to the wrong street and gets involved with a group of seriously fucked up characters. Basically, he stumbles upon a plot to steal a large amount of bonds. The man behind this plot is Tyrone. His muscle is Hoop and the seductress (there's always one in a story like this) is Erin (Milla Jovovich). (By the way, if done right, this could be one of the memorable roles of the year for Milla.) Pretty much the whole movie takes place in one night with Jack captured in the house with these characters who also include the elderly couple Mr. and Mrs. Quarre. Tyrone is essentially just using everyone for his goals and it's up to Jack to try to out-guess everyone's next move. The best scenes are the cat and mouse game that Jack and Erin play when they're left alone. What is Erin's connection to Tyrone and just what is Jack to believe when everyone is out for themselves only? I know this review sucks but I really can't say anything more without giving away something crucial. The ending left me with a slight question but of course, we're talking about Sammy Jackson so you know he'll deliver. Bottom line: wait for the trailer and see just how this plays out but this could be one of those little movies that comes out with little fanfare but winds being much talked about. At the very least, this should be a good matinee. I'm there! (did I mention Sammy (Jules -- Mace -- Shaft -- walking definition of cool) Jackson?
