Movie Review: No Good Deed - PG13
Terri is a wife and mother of two, living in Atlanta when Colin, a charming but dangerous escaped convict, shows up at her door claiming car trouble. Terri offers her phone to help him but soon learns that no good deed goes unpunished as he invades her home and terrorizes her family.
The story is very well done. Many movies today include gratuitous violence and/or unnecessary gore. There is indeed some violence, but only what is needed to tell the story. That is one content warning, and the other would be some language.
Both Taraji Henson (Terri) and Idris Elba (Colin) are Very Good in their roles. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat.
A Very Good movie.
