It pains me to give Denzel Washington a less than stellar review, but that’s the best I can do with this movie.
It was a very tired, overused plot that added nothing to the genre. The acting was respectable although no one is going to walk away with an Oscar. There didn’t seem to be any chemistry between Denzel and Rami, but maybe that’s what the director was going for.
If you’re a fan of the old detective shows from the 70s — such as The Rockford Files, Colombo, or Barnaby Jones — then you’ll enjoy The Little Things.
Denzel does pull off the old wrinkled suit with his own style added, and I can’t find fault in that.
About The Peetimes: This is a slow paced movie, making it easy to get 3 good Peetimes. If you can wait, the last Peetime is the best. It’s mostly just a driving scene, with very little dialog.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Little Things. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Rated (R) n/a
