Disturbing the Peace – Action
Category – Movie
Content – This is your typical, very low budget attempt at an action film. The lead, Jim Dillon, is faced with accidentally killing his partner; therefore as sheriff of a small town he refuses to carry a gun. Guess that proves as a mistake when a group of bikers (but not really) roll into town to rob their small bank and armored truck. While the movie has a couple cool shoot outs and blow up scenes, it is lacking in everything else. Scenes that are completely unrealistic – like when a biker comes into a restaurant and asks for a beer. The waitress says NO, then comes from behind the counter to square up with this biker. A choreographed fight scene ensues, but come on. Even The Rock wouldn’t do that! I commend filmmakers that try their best with the budgets they have, but this one should have been chalked up to a complete fail. This scores a 2 out of 10.
Acting – Guy Pearce and Devon Sawa – what happened??? Both of these actors have been in tremendous films, not sure what has taken them both so down hill? But they are rolling down this hill fast. Very unfortunate for these two. Scores a 3 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 31 mins. You would think this 91 min film would be a breeze to watch, I mean, compared to others its nothing in time. Well, I must admit after an hour I could not take it anymore. This gets a 2 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Disturbing the Peace – 8 out of 30
Recommended Watch – NO, don’t waste your 91 min of your life (if you could even get through it, I couldn’t!)
