Strong Rock Belief (2022) Movie Overview

Solid Rock Trust

Thrillers that happen in a single location aren’t quite common. It appears filmmakers want to make the most of a stage for spectacle, and the script is left in a secondary airplane. If we add the motion style to this equation, it’s much more uncommon. However do you truly bear in mind motion movies having good scripts apart from the apparent ones we at all times converse of?

In Strong Rock Belief, author/director Rick Ives decides in any other case. He’s eager on sustaining the movie on his lead’s shoulders and getting a very good story out of a really monotonous setting. However guess once more. Strong Rock Belief is nicely… strong (ha!). Ives’ movie is way more fascinating than its premise, and apart from a number of points, it goes down easily as a Friday evening thriller with all the suitable items.

The story is easy. Maddie is a hacker and he or she’s in command of main a financial institution heist from an deserted constructing. For some motive (I’m guessing it’s extra of an opportunity for Koko Marshall to showcase her appearing) she communicates with the workforce pretending to be a special particular person when she talks to every of them. Issues keep in management at first. 

After which all of it goes to shambles. Horribly. Every part Maddie builds falls down very slowly as she tries to manage her workforce contained in the financial institution, and a cop who’s negotiating the discharge of hostages. Strong Rock Belief is one twist after one other submitting Maddie to the best take a look at she’s ever endured.

It’s fairly apparent from the beginning however that is Koko Marshall’s present. The movie is sustained by her efficiency as a frontrunner making an attempt to realize belief from each attainable facet. There’s a physicality to her efficiency that’s merged with the setting and he or she graciously strikes between computer systems and cellphones and convinces us of her function. The movie wouldn’t work as nicely with out an actress being dedicated like Marshall is.

Nonetheless, within the third act Strong Rock Belief stumbles a bit. There’s a ultimate twist that doesn’t really feel as related with the movie, and actually doesn’t do a lot for characters. Not even for Maddie who will get betrayed and loses confidence for a second. It additionally drifts in the direction of a territory with out a lot logic in its decision.

That is one nicely written thriller that would remedy your evening instantly. It’s nicely acted and even when it might use some slicing within the enhancing room, the director’s imaginative and prescient is uncompromised. In relation to indies, it doesn’t at all times occur, so when it does, we must always have a good time.
