Movie Reviews

Out of the Black
Frank Charles | WA | 10/20/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"They say everyone has their secrets, every small town its skeletons. But what recent big-budget Hollywood bonanza has taken this idea to its full potential? None to my knowledge, but heck if I didn't just see a film that NEEDS to be seen by ANYONE looking for a couple of hours of quality, substantial entertainment. "Out of the Black" is a stirring, incredibly acted film about a small town and its secrets, as seen through the lives of two brothers whose dad has lost his life in a mysterious accident. What distinguishes this film from others on video is that it's a crime it wasn't shown on the big screen. It's that good. When the film ended, I actually shed a tear or two. For quality entertainment, you can do no better than this small miracle. Sally Kirkland deserves another Oscar nod."
A great indie film!

"Wow - what a surprise! I rented this thinking it would be a fun little thriller & enjoyed it way more than I thought I would! OUT OF THE BLACK is a tightly written, well-acted thriller with real suspense & some breakneck action. A nice line of humor runs through it as well. Very cool flick!"
Truth less painful than lies
Kelly J. Sanner | Hattiesburg, MS. United States | 05/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A beautifully shot, intriguing story about two brothers living with a false pretense of how their father died. They have the truth slowly revealed to them with a complete but not necessarily predictable ending. It would be much better if people would deal with the less painful truth than devestating lies. Director Karl Kozak uses a nice blend of veteran actors with some promising newcomers. Jason Widener plays one of the brothers. Story has it that he was plucked from a "cattle call," line and eventually got the part. He is a definite "diamond in the rough." So is this film."
Interesting Drama
John | San Diego, CA | 09/26/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nice cast with a few old familiar faces and some good-looking newcomers. Story was a bit complex in the middle but resolved very nicely. I like the "indie" feel and quality of this film. I think the writer and director showed a nice touch, not too heavy-handed. All in all, a good couple of hours of enjoyment."
