Review: The Tax Collector

由托尼Ruggio

I’m not certain I’ve ever seen a movie fall apart so much, so quickly, and so late as该Tax Collector。什么开始作为一种强烈的,做工精良,黑帮图片 - 几乎是扭曲的哥们电影真 - 最终的不满转化一个制作粗糙的复仇电影。

该first half, at least, is chock-full of intriguing little details, and workday nuances that could’ve only been culled from real-life experience on the mean streets of East Los Angeles. David (Bobby Soto) is a mid-level collector for his imprisoned ringleader father (Jimmy Smits) and connected uncle (George Lopez). He’s a monied, family man in a wealthy enclave, running the day-to-day errands for their neck of the woods, which mostly involve collecting gang taxes from the neighborhood shops and shopkeepers. His enforcer Creeper, a well-dressed white man and friend he clearly grew up with, is played by a riveting Shia Labeouf...

拉博夫开始了他的职业生涯,作为一个迪斯尼频道的明星,然后通过迈克尔·贝和史蒂芬·斯皮尔伯格segued成卖座明星。个人混乱和错误的选择肆虐在他的职业生涯轻微破坏,一时间,他退居到独立电影的边缘,偶尔导演调情(拉斯冯提尔的Nymphomaniac,Andrea Arnold'sAmerican Honey)。2019有点为拉博夫卷土重来一方,作为温和的戏剧Peanut Butter Falconand his harrowing child star story亲爱的男孩事实证明,他承诺他的手艺,并可能在它的长途。

由于有缺陷的,因为它可能是,该Tax Collector是的演出演员的不断提高记录的一个很好的例子。他是一个不断有看头创业奇兵这里,即使爬行只是站在原地用一副墨镜遮挡他的灵魂。他的性格是在影片中,一个冷血杀手但谁愿意作为朋友,谁把自己的身体作为一个寺庙中最有趣的。已经取得了很多关于一个巨大的文身拉博夫据称曾凿到他的胸口这个角色,不幸的是他,那墨水几乎没有看到相机光明的一天。

(该re’s also been some minimal hullabaloo over the possibility that Labeouf is playing brown-face, a white man playing a Mexican. There’s no evidence in the film to support such a claim, or the assumption that everyone in David's crew would have to be Latino. There’s a running theme throughout of different gangs cooperating with one another, not simply out of business obligation but collective empathy as well. So perhaps we should give director David Ayer, a guy who grew up with LA gangs, the benefit of the doubt there.)

一个被忽视的儿子想证明自己的价值,以一个遥远的父亲:由于实际主角,索托不幸与一个漂亮的弧线简陋背负。电影打开大卫的早晨之前,日常工作和它的简单迷人看着从溺爱他的妻子这个家庭的男人转变,孩子们恐吓世卫组织的,谁在LA黑道。这并不是说,我们还没有见过这样一个顽皮的不和谐,但约十分钟的比喻新鲜又感觉。

鲍比·索托在税吏

IfTax Collector内容是一系列的不幸和圣and-offs around town, it might have proven itself a worthwhile endeavor. The best parts all come early on and involve Soto and Labeouf patrolling the city in their black SUV, driving errand to errand, bickering and enjoying each other’s company. David Ayer has delivered flashes of greatness with this sort of material before with his screenplay forTraining Day(这是由一个有魅力的影星性能提升另一部电影)和他的好评警察剧End of Watch.He has no such luck here. Between a disgusting yet uninteresting villain and a rack-focus to David’s love for his wife, a subplot that never quite gels into something we care about, Ayer’s film goes off the rails as the character’s life does. It’s never good when a script makes you angry, aghast at the unmotivated narrative choices that they believed would work on an audience. When people start dying in droves, the movie dies with them.C-

该Tax Collector is available to rent on Google Play, Vudo, and other platforms.
