“Jack, a social outcast, is thrust out of his comfort zone when the outside world bangs on his door and he can’t contain his violent past.”
Henry Rollins in a new film role? YES! I believe this may be his largest role yet, to be honest, he’s shown up in a lot of films in the past, but usually only in small (but still valuable) parts.
Henry plays Jack, someone who is a very socially isolated and outcast person with some terrible inner anger issues. This fits Rollins perfectly, as I have always considered him to be quite a menacing force to be reckoned with, especially whilst fronting Black Flag, and then his own Rollins Band outfits.
Let me put it out there – Henry does a fine job in his role as Jack, and it is carried with how well the script is written. At times it may force you to laugh out loud. and other times identify with the inner turmoil and frustration that I think everyone can relate to in Jack’s character.
Henry does not seem to need to act like many other “non-actors” who do , he just shows up, gets the job done, then goes home, and he does so very well in this flick.
A lot of people have panned this film as being “a cheap and nasty film for social misfits and loners”, but I don’t think they’re quite getting what director Jason Krawczyk was going for in this. I, myself am not a social misfit, perhaps a loner, but I believe this film will appeal to anyone who’s ever held grudges or anger and society, and I think that is everyone, because we’re all human.
This is a good film, it does not outstay it’s welcome, and you get to see the legend Henry Rollins in a larger film role that truly suites him perfectly.
See this soon!
6 out of 10 – Henry Rollins, and an incredible script – what more could you ask for?
