The Devil All the Time - Movie Review

The Movie: The Devil All the Time

The Director: Antonio Campos

The Cast: Tom Holland, Bill Skarsgård, Riley Keough, Jason Clarke, Sebastian Stan, Haley Bennett, Eliza Scanlen, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson

The Story: Sinister characters converge around a young man devoted to protecting those he loves in a postwar backwoods town teeming with corruption and brutality.

The Review:
So, this movie is basically a bunch of violent, uneducated, brainwashed by religion, back water red neck people who spend their days doing bad things to each other. I honestly don't know if I have much else to say about the movie. It wasn't interesting, it was a waste of an amazing cast, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone for any reason.

Speaking of the cast, this might be one of the most impressive rosters of talent outside of a Marvel movie that I have seen in a long time and this really made me hopeful that the movie would be just as impressive. For most of the actors, I would say this movie is a non factor in their careers and, for someone on the rise like Tom Holland, might have actually set him back a bit as he really isn't very interesting in this movie and all I saw from him was an out of place Peter Parker.

I was trying to think of something positive to take away from watching this movie and I honestly could not think of anything. The one thing I am impressed with is Netflix's ability to take a movie that looks amazing and has a lot of potential and then the end result is lackluster at best. This really has become their wheelhouse.
