I was primed to expect the worst, but “Bright” probably wouldn’t have been too bad – if it had come out twenty years ago during Will Smith’s box office prime, with a better screenwriter attached.

Street Kings David Ayer From its unshowy script on down, Mississippi Grind is content to rumble along as a character piece, keeping its storytelling loose and unpredictable, like a repeat flick of the dice.
Nonetheless, I am pleased to see Reynolds stretch his dramatic credentials, and who better to learn from than Mendelsohn.
As a TV series they could really get into the characters and you could more gradually figure out what was going on. The film earns major points for giving Ben Mendelsohn a proper, meaty character to tussle with, no longer psychotic second banana or dfl deus ex machina.
