  • No Good Deed is an example of the worst kind of exploitative thriller — and it’s being released during the worst possible week. show more

  • Elba, who recruited his former Luther director Miller into the project, gives the film more dignity than it deserves, and Henson delivers a performance of complex emotional shadings. But their fine work is utterly wasted in this B-movie exploitation thriller that would barely make for passable viewing on late night cable television. show more

  • [A] perfectly serviceable thriller. show more

    Good Deeds was a nice quick film. Both lead characters were excellent and believable, very suspenseful but I do wish it was longer, ended much too fast for a theatre film.Idris was in a role that we haven't seen him in yet but he tackled it very well. Overall its worth seeing.

    One of the shortest adult movies I've ever seen. First time I've seen Idris Elba play a bad guy and totally believable. He gave me the creeps. My only problem with the film is Taraji is a smart lawyer convicting woman beaters and she let this guy in her house? Ah, no smart woman would do that, I don't care how hard it's raining! I was hoping she saved a bullet for her husband at the end..
