Review: No Good Deed, 2014, dir. Sam Miller

No Good Deed promises little, but, to its credit, it largely lives up to that promise. You don’t need to lower your expectations for the film; it lowers them for you, roundly but quietly apologizing at every turn for not being better than it is. Frankly,No Good Deed’s abashed tone is unnecessary, because its biggest crime is being an adequately made, wholly by-the-numbers thriller. It will not dazzle you. It will not make you white knuckle your seat. It won’t even bother trying to show you anythingnew. It’s as boilerplate an effort as they come.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
