THE BIG FINISH

What a very unexpected play on words. I knew nothing about this film going in so I was definitely surprised how the turn of events transpired and ultimately played out. Paula Patton is excellent delivering one of her best performances in a role that required her to perform high physical activity. Omar Epps always and still has the charming demeanor and makes it very easy to empathize with his character. Brea and John’s love angle is captured well. This movie is also very unpredictable and will have viewers hooked on what will happen next. Some moments linger on a bit too long and the main villain along  with the sheriff came off way too cheesy which brought this film down a notch for me. The call back scenes were shot nice at the end however the final moments are EXTREMELY farfetched. Beyond the plot points Traffik sheds light on an unfortunate industry generating a lot of revenue that needs to be taken down.
