I love me a good suspense movie. I also love Idris Alba. So when I saw Idris Elba was going to be playing a creepy, intelligent, and very good looking escaped convinct… I was all over it. “No Good Deed’ was directed by Sam Miller and stars Idris Elba, Taraji P. Henson, and Leslie Bibb. With an all star cast like that, this movie was destined to be good.
I was not disappointed. Idris Elba plays an amazing bad guy and Taraji P. Henson is an incredible actress that can easily tackle any role she is given. In this case, she was a mother of two home alone by herself. Elba plays an escaped convict who breaks out of his transport after being denied bail. He manages to end up at Terry’s house (Henson), and all hell soon breaks out.
The acting was incredible, the characters were well written and developed, and the cast was spot on. The story line was not predictable and I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen next. They picked the perfect people to play these roles.
