Puncture

25 Jan

punctureDrug-addicted attorney Mike and his business partner Paul take on a case involving an emergency room nurse who has been pricked by an infected needle. Uncovering a web of corporate conspiracies, Mike and Paul quickly find themselves outmatched. (Netflix)

So, this is a pretty interesting true story law drama about the use of needles in hospitals. First off, it was a topic I knew nothing about, so that part was fascinating. The only problem was that parts of the script got really jargon-y, both from a law and medical standpoint. Basically, I understood the majority of what was going on, but I wish I could have had a full understanding. Also, this movie is a bit slow paced, which got a little boring. On the flip side, what really shone out was Chris Evans’ acting performance. Now, I love Captain America as much as the next person, but this gave him an opportunity to really play a character, and he did a really good job, it was completely different from anything I’ve ever seen him in. Overall though, a movie that could have been absolutely fantastic, is just decent.

6/10
