[dropcap size=small]C[/dropcap]olin Evans (Idris Elba) is denied parole by the Tennessee Department of Correction, five years into serving a prison term for manslaughter, having killed a man and suspected of killing five women.

No Good Deed (2014)

In Atlanta, Terri Granger (Taraji P. Henson) is at home with her baby Sam and young daughter Ryan. Her best friend Meg (Leslie Bibb) suggests that Terri relax by sharing a girls night with her. Terri’s husband Jeffrey (Henry Simmons) arrives home just long enough to pack for a trip to visit his father, and is unhelpful and impatient with Terri, despite his assurances that he loves her.

No Good Deed (2014)

Also in Atlanta, Colin stalks a woman named Alexis (Kate del Castillo), who was his fiancee before he went to prison. He confronts her with evidence that she has been unfaithful; after she admits to sleeping with another man, he violently murders her. Later, Colin crashes his Ford Ranger in a storm and walks to Terri’s home, arriving at dinner time and asking for her help in getting a tow truck. She invites him inside and tends to a wound on his forehead, while he charms her and Ryan. He opens up about his fiancee having cheated on him. Meg arrives with wine and is attracted to Colin. They share the wine and Colin uses the opportunity of a shared smoke break to manipulate Meg into doubting Terri’s honesty before murdering Meg with a shovel and hiding her body. Colin tells Terri that Meg left, but Terri sees Meg’s umbrella is still in the house. She also realizes that the phone lines are cut and the kitchen knives are missing. After getting Colin away from Ryan, she attacks him with a fire extinguisher but is unable to escape with the children before he recovers. Holding Terri at gunpoint, Colin forces her to stand in the shower as he washes himself, then makes her undress and change her clothes. Terri expects him to rape her, but he does not. She again attacks him, managing to stab him, but fails to escape.

No Good Deed (2014)

Colin forces Terri to bring the children and drive him away in her car; as they leave, Terri sees Meg’s body. On the road, Terri manages to alert a police officer to the danger she is in; the officer pulls them over, but Colin shoots and kills him before he can help her. Colin makes Terri drive to Alexis’ home, where he separates Terri from her children and leaves her tied up in the room with Alexis’ body. Terri manages to free herself in time to answer Alexis’ ringing phone, and the call turns out to be from Jeffrey, who is trying to confirm that Alexis is meeting him at a hotel. Terri realizes that the encounter with Colin was not random; her husband is the man Alexis was sleeping with, and Colin wants revenge. Terri tells her surprised husband that Alexis is dead and she and their children have been kidnapped. She tells him to send help to Alexis’ house. She finds Ryan and Sam and hides them, and then attacks Colin again when he returns. Taking advantage of the stab wound, she gains control of his gun and shoots him repeatedly, causing him to fall out a window to his death.

Review Summary

To be honest ‘No Good Deed’ is a waste of it’s stars’ talents and the audience’s time. The story plot has no inspiration at all.. However there are three reasons why I liked this film…., the great lead characters, the consistent flow of the film and finally the whole story was told in around 80 minutes. This is director Sam Miller’s first attempt at a widely distributed feature film and I think that he did a pretty good job. I would recommend it to a friend who want’s to see a film before bedtime.

Blu-Ray Extras

  • The making a thriller
