No Good Deed is about an escaped convict, Colin (Idris Elba), who murders his ex-girlfriend before wrapping his car around a tree in the middle of a storm. He ends up at a nearby house where Terry (Taraji P. Henson) and her family live. The husband is out of town however and Terry is charmed by the stranger who at first glance appears everything her husband is not. So she does what every woman who’s alone in her house with her kids would do and invites him in. Later on Terry’s friend shows up and becomes suspicious, which brings out Colin’s true nature and turns the evening into a nightmare.
I don’t know what’s worst honestly… the script, the acting or the endless torrent of thriller clichés that have all found their way into this piece of crap. Actually, the best part about No Good Deed is a short featurette that’s also on the blu-ray. It has the producer, the executive producer and the director commenting on how well-written the movie is and how they turned it into a masterpiece. It’s comedy at its best and I wish it lasted longer. What makes it even better is that they actually seem to believe the shit they’re saying. If they aren’t… well, that would make them better actors than anyone who is in the actual movie.
