No harm, no foul. No Good Deed won't come within a country mile of Oscar consideration, and most audiences will find it a flat and unimaginative Thriller built on strict structure rather than creative risk. It's not dull, just unremarkable, a movie that does what it does with commendable craftsmanship but nothing in the film ever gets under the skin, unsettles the mind, or lingers in the soul. It's worth a watch for Elba's crafty turn as the villain, but it's otherwise hardly worth remembering, which probably makes it the ideal candidate for someone in the mood for a movie that's purely watched for classic "escapism." Sony's Blu-ray release of No Good Deed does deliver excellent video and audio. A few supplements are included for those who wish to learn a little more about the movie. Give it a rent when a night lounging on the couch to mindless entertainment sounds like fun.
I love this movie. I felt the energy between Idris and Taraji's characters was believe and it had me and my family at the edge of our seats the whole time. It's really fun if you're the scream at the TV type haha
