My Review of ‘The Little Things’

I love a good murder mystery! I’m talking Se7en, Prisoners, and The Silence of the Lambs. Those are the best ones I’ve seen and I’ve seen some other good mystery movies along the way.

This week I decided to watch The Little Things, a new murder mystery starring Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto. I almost skipped watching this movie but when Leto earned a Golden Globe nomination for the film I thought, heck, I might as well check it out.

So I watched it yesterday with my sister and oh my goodness, it was underwhelming.

For the first hour it’s just mindless exposition filled with cop lingo that left me pulling at my face with frustration. Half of what they were talking about I couldn’t understand and the other half, I just didn’t care about.

When Leto finally showed up, he kind of brought a bit of pizzazz to the movie but overall, the ending left me like, “WHAT?!” It just was annoying and nonsensical and just…frustrating.

The only reason why I made it as long as I did was because I was watching the film believing that Denzel Washington’s character was the actual killer.

SPOILERS AHEAD! It isn’t. In fact…we never find out who actually is killing all of the people. That doesn’t mean there isn’t a bit of a shocking ending but because the writer was trying so hard to tell a story that’s different they didn’t think to actually write a movie that was entertaining.

70 out of 100 and 2/5 stars

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

6. The Equalizer

Denzel Washington in The Equalizer (2014)

With a Liam Neeson-like approach on action blockbusters as an older actor, Denzel Washington plays the no-name-taking, butt-kicking Robert McCall in 2014’s The Equalizer. The movie was so successful that it would end up getting a sequel. I didn’t finish this film but it was a decent movie. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Denzel Washington
