He's had smaller parts in movies and TV shows for the better part of three decades now, but unless we're mistaken, He Never Died marks his first starring role. From the start, the idea of Henry Rollins headlining a Genre flick like this intrigued the hell out of us, and now having seen it, we can honestly say that it turned out far better than we had hoped it would.
|SHE OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO PLAY BINGO.|
|"DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK, I'VE BEEN HERE FOR YEARS."|
Deadpan black humor and excessive violence ensue.
|ALRIGHT, SO HE DOES EAT SOME THINGS THAT HAVE BLOOD IN THEM...|
This is a really clever and well-written movie overall. If first time writer/director Jason Krawczyk's debut feature is any indication of what he has to offer, well be curious to see what he does next.
|ODDEST COUPLE EVER.|
We also really liked the ending. Rollins' last line was great.
|"ALL OF MY LINES WERE GREAT!"|
|THIS IS ABOUT AS ANTI-HERO AS A CHARACTER GETS.|
The movie also has quite a mean streak about it, with plenty of bloody and overtly-violent moments throughout. Henry Rollins kicks ass exactly how we expected Henry Rollins to kick ass in this one; with a quiet cool ferocity.
|YOU DUN KNOCKED ON THE WRONG DOOR, BOYS.|
|SING IT, HENRY. SING IT.|
Avoid the trailers if you can (because they give a ton away), and give this one a rent.
He Never Died is available now on VOD.
Jordan Todosey and Kate Greenhouse are in this.
