Quick Review: Faces in the Crowd (2011)
Milla, Milla, Milla, why you do me like thees, Milla!

It's bad enough that we have to endure some of the shittiness that is the Resident Evil series (we love those movies, but let's be honest here, they aren't the greatest), but at least they're entertaining. But this movie? This slow, poorly-plotted "Thriller?" You don't even get naked in it, Milla!

The insipid plot involves a woman who witnesses a serial killer's latest murder, and then is struck with some sort of "Facial Blindness" in which people's faces change appearance when she looks away from them... Yeah. Clever, right?

Yeah, us too.
So the whole movie is her looking at people and seeing all sorts of different people, and not knowing who anyone is, all the while the killer is closing in on her.... and all of it felt like one big, silly plot device.


Milla, you're better than this.
We're sorry to have so shit on a genre flick starring our beloved Milla Jovovich, but good God this one was a suck job. The premise could have worked, as goofy as it was, but it felt cheesy, repetitive and just got boring. It's one of those movies where you know who the killer is about halfway through, because it's so clumsily scripted.

Not only is the ever lovely Milla Jovovich in this, but so is The Walking Dead's Sarah Wayne Callies.
