Dead Draw (2016) Reviews

  • Too much use of flashbacks ruined it


    The premise of this revolves around a big cash heist committed by a gang of 4 guys with information provided by an information broker. Whilst looking like it goes off smoothly things subsequently don't go to plan. The story set-up seems solid, if nothing new. However, soon the movie revolves around being stuck in one physical location (one large indoor space) which makes it a bit boring. To compound this the movie then begins a flashback narrative on each character (more than one for each character), moving back to the present time and back again. This jars quickly as nearly 40-50% of the movie must in the end be composed of these flashbacks and it takes your focus and interest off the main story. It does redeem itself a bit at the end but I found that this mechanic was a fail for me and makes the movie a lesser product as a result.

  • Well put together thriller


    On the surface, the premise of bank robbers falling out with each other as time pressure builds is not particularly original. Yet Dead Drop manages to bring something fresh to the genre. Well plotted and filmed, the pacing is excellent as flashbacks filling in the characters and tense action in the present time intersperse and blend well with each other. Dead Drop is well acted, each character believable and understandable. The music is appalling, so bad it must be deliberate; discordant, miserable, something to get away from, just like the participants and situation. Most of the scenes are extremely well shot and there is a lot of tension in some the scenes that are held for that extra moment. While nothing truly remarkable, Dead Drop is better than most and well worth the effort to see.

  • Not particularly original, but not bad


    This is a movie about a gang of thieves is put together to rip off a drug cartel who keep their money in safe deposit boxes in a nondescript bank in the Midwest, and of course "things go wrong". I hope it's not a spoiler to say it's basically a non-Tarantino version of Reservoir Dogs. It's well acted, and they do keep you guessing, but like most neo-noir movies, you can't think too hard about the characters' actions and motivations, or you'll realize they're doing a lot of things that don't make sense. I wouldn't have paid money to see this at the theater, but it was a decent way to pass an hour and a half on a plane.

  • Confusing and dramatically inert


    I know very well the many difficulties independent filmmakers often have when trying to make a movie, a lot of them coming from the fact that these filmmakers usually have a lot less resources than filmmakers of big budget major studio films. So I will give some praise for the filmmakers of "Dead Draw" for coming up with a story that could easily be filmed on the pittance of the budget they had on their hands. While the movie is low budget, the seams don't show. Unfortunately, that's about the only praise I can give for this movie. The main reason why the movie fails is its script. For about two-thirds of the movie, we are subjected to so many flashbacks - and flashbacks that aren't for the most part that interesting or insightful - that it's impossible for the main story thread to build up any momentum or suspense. As a result, most of the movie plays out really flat and dull, punctuated occasionally by some murky plot touches that just add some confusion to the narrative. I think the filmmakers were trying to be somewhat different than many B-movies, but honestly I think they would have been more successful had they told this story in a more conventional way.

  • "You Can't Run From Your Past"


    In "Dead Draw," four high-rollers carry out the robbing of a bank in which they have used insider information to clean out several safe deposit boxes filled with $25 million in cash. But a little problem arises when the thieves try to make their getaway. The four robbers have cleverly used the occasion of a military parade in a small Midwestern town to dress in fatigues and rob the bank. They have learned from a "deep throat" source that members of a drug cartel are using the bank in a pleasant rural area to stash their loot. Two of the thieves (Mack and Dallas) are brothers, one of whom took the fall and spent time in prison during an earlier heist. Another (Jones) is a military veteran with a checkered past and is prone to extreme violence. The ringleader (Harrison) is love with Sarah, the insider who provided him with details about the bank security system and the safe deposit boxes. One drawback of this film is the over-reliance on flashbacks to provide character details. Mack, who has just completed is prison term has now apparently discovered religion. But do we need to have a flashback confessional scene in a church to understand Mack's state of mind? The exposition about the previous heist was straightforward; do we need to see that past event re-enacted? Mack's younger brother was apparently a good boxer. It might have added some much needed action to the flashbacks to see him in the ring. But that never happened. The film developed some good suspense in piquing the audience's interest in who "sold out" the thieves and prevented their exit from town by plane. The resolution was also nifty in drawing upon a well-meaning secondary character who messed things up for the robbers. The characters were generally unlikable, but one interesting theme that emerged that may be summed up in one line: "You can't run from your past." In this regard, all of those flashbacks demonstrated how true that adage was for a group of losers.
