"Small Town Crime" — crime detective 2017, telling the story of a police officer in the resignation of abusing alcohol. After another nabua, he suddenly he finds the body of the murdered girl, and takes investigation last chance for rehabilitation, but not all just — search for the killer plant has a private detective such mischief that are threatened all his family. In starring: John Hawkes, Anthony Anderson, Octavia Spencer.

Acting. Not say that all the actors fit in their roles. Octavia Spencer for example. I understand that black actors can play white dudes sisters, but here is no explained. Why sister of the main character black? Sister do it or he his friends are just call? It would be possible to do easier. Just take on the role of sister white actress. It never affects scenario that is all the problem. John Hawkes pulls the role well. It is not despite all the flaws in the scripts, does his job at almost great.

Scenario. I think I saw somewhere? Almost all in this film too corny. Drunken ex-COP, trying to regain themselves on the best way — not Max Payne 3. it? Yes no, not Max Payne 3, there are increasingly diverse it was. As remember, there are exactly two inappropriate stupid jokes. They so fit in the narrative part of the film that it begins to seem that the Director of their decided to add self, for fun. And the fun does not worked. Drunken COP investigating the murder of a girl, a poor in the form of local "criminal authority" — I expected more.

About the film in General. I wouldn't said this work did like the movie. I think it is closer to the middle series, released on any Netflix, not more. But the function of the middle of the show he executes, because its hunting watch until end it is good.

"Small Town Crime" — this is an average movie. You will most likely not want to review and forget it has a couple of hours, but this movie does the job — it allows you to get involved, though, and hackneyed plot with a couple was a misplaced joke.

Assessment is clearly positive.

The film turned out very good. Its attractive atmosphere, exciting immerses in itself. The plot is simple, but quite clear. All events revolve around the main character (John Hawkes) — COP resigned, abusing alcohol, he specifies the invigorating tone. After the death of a young girl, the officer begins to understand that in this case not all so pure, the hunt for the next victims (young ladies, who knew the dead), famously gaining momentum and affect all who will be woven into this extensive chain. With this moment, starts difficult the redemption of the hero in the office.

I believe that for better visualization, the film is not enough for a little more background about the care of colored relatives (Anthony Anderson, Octavia Spencer) over Mike Candela, in addition a little wider to reveal other characters to it seemed impersonal. Joined partners in the search for the criminals themselves, they also have something to get even with murderers. The final shootout — is the most gusto, the dignity of the picture. But ending on my opinion, too, was to diversify, adding a sharp turn, in General, are the end — not hard.

"Crime in a small town" — crime detective 2017, with a good addition of elements of action, Thriller and Comedy (often observed black humor). Action with an abundance of bloody scenes felt quite so that this tape will be a lot of interest.

Mike Kendall (John Hawkes) — ex-COP, fired with work because of drunkenness, which cost the life of his partner another random victim. Now Mike lays down his collar renewed energy and tries to find at least some work, so as not to sit on the neck Rodney — sister Kelly (Octavia Spencer) and her husband Ted (Anthony Anderson). One day, returning home after another drinking bout, he finds the roadside wounded the girl's body. Mike takes a stranger in the hospital, but it soon dies. Then the hero begins his own investigation, seeing this, first, a chance for once in your life to do something useful, and second, finally to improve a little bit hopelessly shaky reputation.

The script "Crimes in a small town," wrote a hitherto little-known brothers Ash Ian Nelms. They themselves orchestrated the tape, inviting the main role of John Hawkes — the 58-year-old actor with a mediocre appearance, which you can see supporting roles in hundreds of films and TV series (for example, in the recent "Three billboards"). Here he at once goes to the Central image, and appears that the hawks charisma allows him to speak and solo.

The atmosphere and surroundings of the "Crime...", incidentally, is also reminiscent of the aforementioned "Billboards". Those same rednecks on the last inflated pennies cheap beer in roadside bars. The terms unemployment and creditors, prostitution and crime — in General, as we love. Even the crime of the fact similar, only then the killer wants to appeal to the answer is not mother, wealthy the deceased grandfather (played by another one veteran, a 76-year-old Robert Forster). It turns out a kind of rural detective, is not hesitate own provinciality, and sometimes able to laugh. In the film, positioning itself as a Thriller, to and many funny episodes (for example, when the main character runs away from killer on the bike). At the same time, however, the action manages not to slip into an outright Comedy or a parody, neatly balancing on the crossroads of genres. It is the combination of tragic and comic in a plot reminiscent of the works of other brothers — the Cohens. Then, with some certainty and immediacy of the protagonist's impersonating what is not an attempt to impose its detective services, its timeless optimism, coupled with the absurdity of the situation, — all albeit not new, but it looks pretty nice. What is important, the story develops very rapidly: all the action is placed less than a half hour, so that time for a long Preface is not, as no not a single superfluous frame.

Upshot of the investigation is not very original: a series of murders in the end turns into a story about blackmail (Hello more times the priests!) and a bloody shootout on the finish. The finale desperately not missing some of the plot twist, yeah and more coherent social message, like the works of Taylor Sheridan, came to the site. But the detective line here, obviously, and not the most important of the components. It rather, the story of the detective. And more about how the man gets a second chance — and using it, staying at this yourself. At end credits same catch yourself thought that seen even a bit like the pilot of the future of the series — and look the sequel would be at least it is interesting...
