Talk about playing the long game…
Rosamund Pike, don’t mess with her. Between this and “Gone Girl,” will we never learn?
The story itself is sickening enough as it is. A crash course in elder abuse, neglect, and misappropriation. On top of that, you involve the mob, presumed blood diamonds, murder for hire, and the mess that is the U.S. legal system coming to blows with the mess that is the U.S. healthcare system… a recipe for disaster, albeit entertaining disaster. Somewhere between “A Simple Favor” and “Cold Pursuit” lies this film. Humor as dark as it comes, beautifully crafted heists and hits, and a story with more twists that a day at Cedar Point. Very well done, Netflix!
