No Sudden Move

Crime Drama


 

A group of criminals must work together on a mysterious job and unravel what's really happening when it all goes sideways.

"No Sudden Move" is a boring story. There are so many characters it's hard to keep them all straight, not helped by the fact they constantly reference each other and add to the confusion. There's no urgency here, it plods along at a languid pace and the running time is bloated because of it. The cast do an adequate job, but everything that they say or do is overshadowed by the horrid choice of lens that was used - every time the camera moves it leads to distortion on the sides of the frame and it's beyond distracting. Freeze.
