The Samaritan Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: After twenty five years in prison, Foley (Samuel L. Jackson, The Avengers) is finished with the grifter's life. When he meets an elusive young woman named Iris (Ruth Negga), the possibility of a new start looks real. But his past is proving to be a stubborn companion: Ethan (Luke Kirby), the son of his former partner, has come up with an ingenious plan for a score and he wants Foley in. The harder Foley tries to escape his past, the tighter he is ensnared in Ethan's web of secrets, until it becomes all too clear to Foley that some wrongs can never be made right. Featuring all-star performances, The Samaritan shows how redemption often comes at a dangerously high price.

Review:  Samuel L. Jackson is one of those actors that doesn't say no.  No, seriously look at his IMDB resume, he's been in EVERTHING..quite possibly anything he's offered.  When an actor does this, its hard to follow them, because there are no standards of quality.  It certainly varies with Jackson. Sure, you have your Pulp Fictions, Jurassic Parks and Avengers, but you also get Snakes on a Plane and Die Hard 3 (ugh).  This time Jackson is the Samaritan, a man trying to get out of the crime game, only to be pulled in harder as he struggles to change.  This one is a great action / crime drama.  Lots of great suspense and action...definately a fun time.

Interest Range: Action, Drama
