Rushlights: Review










Official Synopsis:

This film revolves around Billy Brody (Josh Henderson) and Sarah (Haley Webb), two delinquent young lovers from the suburbs of Los Angeles, traveling to a small Texas town to falsely claim a dead friend’s inheritance. The two teens, haunted by their own dubious pasts while pursuing their scam, wind up in a nightmare of greed and betrayal when confronted with the twisted and bizarre underworld of Tremo, TX.

One thing that I really enjoy is getting taken by surprise by a film that comes out of nowhere. Rushlights easily takes you on a ride full suspense, twists and doesn’t slow down one bit. With Beau Bridges and Aidan Quinn in the cast this film will appeal to two generations of people that love the crime-thriller genre. I really liked the well crafted story and even though there were parts that were fairly predictable it pretty much kept me guessing till the end. Henderson took the ball and ran with it as far as leading man status goes. I’m not to familiar with his previous work but after watching some of his action scenes I think I’ll take some time and view his other stuff. Webb I was a bit more familiar with and her role as Sarah was probably the best work of hers that I’ve seen. Her character initially came off as kind of weak but at the end of the second act she took a very strong turn and did something that left my jaw dropped. Let’s just say it had to do with a syringe. Quinn and Bridges I felt brought a level of legitimacy to the film and their presence sure did work wonders. Paired with the other young actors I thought they played off of each other very well and gave each other a run for their money. All in all this was a nice thrill ride that will show you just how desperate someone can get when they have dollar signs in front of their face.
