Left-of-center movie is worth checking out April 15 2013
By Paul Allaer - Published on
Format: DVD
Imagine my surprise when out of the blue and without any advance marketing of any kind, this movie showed up on just two screens here in Cincinnati recently. I figured there was no way this would play very long here (and I was right, the movie was gone after one week), so I went to see it right away.

"The Power of Few" (2013 release; 95 min.) brings the same 20 min. in an early afternoon in New Orleans, but brought from multiple (five, actually) perspectives, and how these intersecting stories play out/touch on each other/collide (literally). Given that you watch the "same" 20 minutes five times over the course of the movie, there is no point in even trying to bring an introduction of the movie's plot. Let's just say that blood WILL be spilled at this particular New Orleans intersection.

Several comments: it's amazing what an all-star cast is attached to this movie, starting of course with Christopher Walken as a homeless man with a secret. I don't recall ever having seen Walken so scrungy looking. Then there is Christian Slater as the undercover agent (along with his partner, played by up-and-coming Australian actress Nicky Whelan), trying to recover a mysterious package. We also have rapper Juvenile as one of the gangsters, and Q'orianka Kilcher as the messenger (and also co-producer AND contributing several songs to the very pleasant movie soundtrack). But the key figure is the title character Few (played by newcomer Tione Johnson), a candy-obsessed young lady who isn't feeling so good from eating all that candy while walking home, and who decides to hitch a ride home, unintentionally finding herself at the center of this movie. This is the long-feature debut of writer-director Leone Marucci. As the credits were rolling at the end of the movie, it seemed that a BUNCH of people named Marucci had some involvement on the set or in the production or the financing of this movie, so this was probably a Marucci labor of love long in the making. Bottom line: this movie is MILES away from your standard Hollywood fare, and definitely worth checking out, whether in the theatre or on DVD.

Good fun movie May 31 2013

I enjoyed watching this movie. It was great fun, and not your normal, predictable garbage film that is so pervasive. I really like Christopher Walken he is a riot. He does a great job with his character, and delivers a funny performance that is full of dry humor.

A movie that shows the same event from many different perspectives. I love movies like this. This one is very good. I say B June 25 2013
By Tony Heck - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
"Have you ever bit the inside of your cheek?" A stolen religious artifact, a baby who needs medicine, a delivery driver who meets a man on the run from a gang, two agents looking for someone and two homeless men all become connected in one tragic event. This is the kind of movie where a series of events connect groups of people that otherwise have nothing in common. This one event is shown from everyone's point of view and how one person can change everything. I love movies like this. Movies that show the same event from many different perspectives. No movie has done it better then Rashomon but there have been many attempts since then. Most recently movies like Crash, 11:14 and Vantage Point have all used this style of filmmaking. I have enjoyed all those movies and I enjoyed this one as well. The only problem I had with this one is that some of the stories went on a little long and started to slow the movie down, but overall the movie was enjoyable and really keeps you watching and sucked in. Overall, a fun movie done in a type of style that I really love, which may skew my opinion but I think it's very much worth watching. I give it a B.

Incredible film, with interesting points of view! June 26 2013
By Dee J. - Published on
Format: DVD
Sure, I'll watch practically anything with Christopher Walken starring, but Christian Slater and the rest of the cast are fascinating, too! It's more than interesting to see how the day progresses from a variety of people's points of view. I would recommend this flick for anyone 18 and over!
