After his “I actually kinda tried” performance in _Once Upon a Time in Venice_ earlier this year, Bruce Willis has obviously circled back to “not giving a fuck”. Hayden Christensen is likewise a non-event in _First Kill_, probably Steven C. Miller’s least interesting movie.
_Final rating:★½: – Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
I felt satisfied after watching ‘First Kill’. Sure it isn’t anything extremely memorable or overly creative/unique, but I came away feeling positive about it. It gave me what I wanted from a straight-to-video action film.
Hayden Christensen is enjoyable in the lead role, and even Bruce Willis seemed to be trying at least; unlike, in my view anyway, in 2016’s ‘Precious Cargo’. Gethin Anthony, of ‘Game of Thrones’ fame, is good too – he features in the best scene of the film with child actor Ty Shelton.
The plot is nothing close to being anything fresh, but it’s suitable and it held my interest all the way through… I can’t really ask for more. 3*.
Decent Thriller, Willis Only Half-Asleep
For a Bruce Willis paycheck movie, this modest thriller isn’t half bad. Willis himself is half-asleep throughout, and, as in the same director’s “Marauders”, he’s outclassed by the more animated second lead, in this case Hayden Christensen. Yes, Christensen upstages Willis, and he’s throughly believable as a young businessman who wants to teach his initially wimpy son how to be a man. The plot (Christensen takes his son on a deer hunt, then witnesses an attempted murder, complications follow) has its fair share of holes, but is generally compelling and twisty, even if you can predict the final twist a mile away. And that’s entirely Willis’ fault – his acting, his mannerisms are just too revealing. The camerawork and editing have a nice fluidity, and there are many visually appealing scenes, partly due to the forest setting. The actions scenes are well handled, too. Miller knows how to stage chases and gunfire. There’s some dopey dialogue, and with one exception, the side characters remain anonymous and underdeveloped. Christensen delivers a solid performance, and Gethin Anthony shines in the role of a sympathetic bank robber (we don’t get to see the actual heist). Some of the plot twists are a bit farfetched, but they’ll keep you watching. Overall, a step up for the prolific Steven C. Miller, even though Willis is asleep through some of it.
My dude Levi
Levi was the only actor that showed promise. Hayden and Bruce both great actors were horrible. The plot was decent but executed horribly. The way they did Levi at the end was bull too, his whole family for that matter.
