Bad Samaritan

 (655)
6.41 h 50 min2018X-Ray15
David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Robert Sheehan (Misfits) star in this dark, twisty mind games thriller. Struggling artist Sean who has a sideline in burglary, hits the jackpot when he breaks into the luxurious home of the wealthy Cale. But when Sean discovers a woman chained up in the house, he is soon dangerously embroiled in a vicious game of cat and mouse with a merciless psychopath. Unmissable!

Bad Samaritan.
Verified purchase
I saw this thriller on TV a while back and enjoyed it, so I got it on DVD.
David Tenant plays a rich, entitled and rather nasty individual who – when his house is burgled by one of a pair of car valets who use customers vehicles and details to rob homes – discovers that Tenant's character is holding a woman captive and is probably a serial killer; it's entertaining and although a little iffy in places plot-wise, it's a far better movie than some of the negative reviews here would have you believe.
I enjoyed it as a genre picture well-played, and effectively tense; watch it for yourself and make your own mind up.
The standard UK DVD release has some deleted scenes and a very brief behind the scenes featurette (1 minute 30 seconds to be precise). English subtitles are available if required.

mr Tennant makes a good villain
Verified purchase
worth watching. mr Tennant is a very good villain. would have preferred him to have kept his English accent to be honest. could have done without the dramatic music at the end, minor faults, tense drama.

First off what sort of Rich guy with all those gadgets doesnt have an alarm that goes off when there is an intruder in the house especially when he has someone tied up inside.

THen there is why the heck do people have their home addresses programmed into their sat navs utter idiocy.

I mean rich affleuent neighbour hood and there is strange falling to bits car parked on the street for a couple of days and no one noticed it. Three break ins to same house in a few days and again no one notices. Dont even get me started on the accents lol. Far too many plot holes and stuff that just didnt make sense.

Tenant as the serial killer is not a new concept remember he played Des, based on Dennis Nielson. I was gripped from start to finish and found it interesting. It has me jumping at times too and I thought David Tenants character Cale was excellent. He does the evil look very well and even I was scared! Well worth watching especially if you like me love serial killer movies. Can't believe I've not seen this before. Bravo, the the makers!

This film is like they wrote 2 scripts - for two different movies - and mashed 'em together at one point. In some of the scenes it plays the calm-&-wise-psycho-nutter-kinda-flicks card, then it lapses into a thrown-together-overnite story straight-2-TV before 10 P.M. - Now, the latter parts of the production is full of plot holes to the point when you start to get annoyed by the cheap stupidity of characters [ or the scriptwright himself ] and it sidetracks your attention coz the plot seems to grind to a crawl every now and again, like they actually wanted the viewer to notice the foolish anomalies within the scenes and the unrealistic actions of the present characters. I'm not even going deeper here...
As for the first bit of the idea in the film, with the baddie nutcase being copied from the - not too good model of - "American Psycho" David T remains the Doctor, no matter how hard he tries. Same mimics, movements and most notably eye-rolling, like the Time Man has and it makes you think of Dr Who behind the scenes when he's having a tantrum for his cuppa gone cold.

All in all it's worse 3 stars, the story had to be told - again - of course and there are points when one can actually forget that it's 1 hour and 50 minutes long for some of the crew [ make-up, background, cinematography and the on-location scenes ] did a good job from their part. You can only work what they give ya, I'd say, they were given this mishmash of a tale with actors that wouldn't be bad but the characters weren't too good either. Seen worse, tho'...
