    If the movie ends too abruptly, it still gives plenty of screen time to its nicely screwed-up central character. And it's still a solid, assured feature debut from the latest brothers to watch. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The film is chock-a-block with extraordinary performances and no one will fault the filmmaking either. This is a well-made movie, make no mistake. It just suffers from a dysfunctional hero. show more

    It's unfair to complain that Weiss seems over the top. The portrayal seems to be accurate. show more

    This was very well acted, terrific story - and a true story - it has it all. I could identify with so many of the characters - fighting a system that isn't always fair, trying to not to be ordinary but doing what God wants me to do with my life - whether it is ordinary or not, being persistent even when I want to sometimes give up but knowing ultimately its the right thing to do. These are the benchmarks of living a life - all of this is in this movie. My only regret is that Mike died - in the end credits, the descriptives of him were so on target. He had so much to give this world and to watch the darkness take him away. This movie would have made Mike proud, I believe. The web site is asking all of us to call our senators and those who can have an affect on these retractable needles being put in hospitals... the fight against those who don't care about the well being of the nurses or med staff... this is a fight we can all join in by sending email and picking up the phone.' Do it - you owe it to someone you love who will be affected by these non protective needles. I have used these retractable needles when I have had to give myself Lovenox, a blood thinkker, made in France (so obviously these are in Europe!) - they are easy to use and very safe! All hospitals/health clinics should use them! If a movie like Puncture can mobilize each of us to do so little that can accomplish so much, then why are you sitting on the computer - get up and call your senator/congressman/woman. Every voice counts and its so easy to be part of doing what is right. So what is my review of the movie - easily 5 days because its based on a true story, it can save lives (even yours), and we need fighters - even quiet fighters who will use a pen, computer or phone. Do your part and I will do mine, too. Hurray for those who made this film - Truth rarely gets told ... instead we see silly movies that have no backstory - You are blessed because this movie is giving you the opportunity to be more than ordinary.....

    Obviously someone needed to write a better review for this movie. Not only is it based on a true story that will blow your mind but Chris Evans does a phenomenal job portraying the part. Seriously people, don\'t take our advice, see it for yourselves. You won\'t be disappointed.
