November Criminals (2017) This is a crime drama about college bound friends find themselves falling for one another, but after the mysterious murder of their classmate, they defy the authorities to uncover the truth. The film has been released straight to video on demand, before a limited theatrical release. It stars Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) and Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick Ass). These are two of my favorite young actors of today. Viewers had mixed reactions and critics felt it was very thin. Everyone seems to agree it failed to to reach its potential. There simply wasn't any movement in the film. I want to get an understanding of the crime. They failed to give us pieces to the puzzle until nearly the close of the film. This is actually a film that could have been far better with just a little more time. Both the love story and the investigation needed to be beefed up. It would have helped get the viewers more invested. I would have tweaked the ending myself. Not horrible, just weak.
I usually love Chloe Grace Moretz's movies but this one isn't great. There just isn't quite enough of a story. It's a real shame with A list cast members even the supporting cast is good with David Strathairn and Catherine Keener playing parents. Ansel Elgort's acting is a little bit better but that's not saying a whole lot. The romance between the 2 is quite cute but the main story is really nothing much. A high school kid gets involved in finding out who killed a classmate. Don't really feel for the cause since there is no establishing story or plot with the deceased. Later he manages to find out who it is quite easily. The climax or lack thereof was hardly anything. I even wanted some kind of twist. Not a must watch at all.
I had a hard time buying into the characters conviction which is what carries the story. It was also slow and at times boring with the storyline.
Addison (Ansel Elgort) and Phoebe (Chloë Grace Moretz) are high school students in the capital area. They are friends, then friends with benefits, then boyfriend/girlfriend...even they didn't know. Addison's mother passed six months ago and he is still dealing with it. A friend of theirs gets shot and the police write it off as gang violence and are too busy to conduct a proper investigation, so Addison takes it upon himself to find the killer. He is way over his head... Addison doesn't go Liam Neeson all over the bad guys to get information. In fact his constant melancholy state was a real damp rag. He was a complete weenie. He liked Bowie which they managed to work in a few times, but not enough. Rather boring. Generous rating. The teens are in bed together, no nudity.
There is good acting, there is fine cinematography, and music too. But there is no movie. It's a crazy thing. There is no story. Must have been a writers strike going on and the cast just kept acting and the crew just kept filming, and then the can was full. This movie is good for film school. All the professional capability in the world still can't fill a vacuum. I feel bad for the people who worked on this movie and then they have to show it to friends and family, everybody trying to be polite.
