Brick (2005)

Posted 21/02/2007 by Edward Davies in Crime

Starring : Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nora Zehetner, Lukas Haas, Emilie de Ravin
Director : Rian Johnson
Running Time : 105 mins

Brendan Frye (Levitt) is a school boy who find himself investigating the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend Emily (de Ravin). His search leads him to discover a mysterious underground crime ring, lead by the Pin (Haas), which may be responsible for Emily’s disappearance or perhaps even her death!

I really liked this film. It flowed like a classic Bogart film noir, but with a younger cast to give it that slight edge. I thought it might end up being like Bugsy Malone, with kids playing gangsters, but this was far from being that light-hearted pie throwing film.

Verdict : 7/10
