Can’t blame Karl Urban character for being hell-bent on revenge in Bent. Urban plays ex-cop Danny Gallagher whose caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy that has everyone after him, including his fellow cop allies. I like Urban in this role, fairly badass and tough. Andy Garcia and Sofia Vergara play supporting roles. This is a fairly standard crime drama, but one that has enough twists and intrigue to keep you along for the ride. Add some solid action with plot and you have yourself a satisfactory crime thriller that Bent ends up being.

There is certainly an audience for a film of this genre. Sure, we’ve seen many movies of this type, but it still merits definite consideration. Look no further than the guy who is typing this. In a slower movie week, this is a nice under-the-radar movie.

‘BENT’ is out now in select theaters and On Demand

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
