  • [A] perfectly serviceable thriller. 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

  • Would No Good Deed have anything worth talking about without the Ray Rice sucker punch tie-in? Barely. show more
