Action, deception and crime. That’s the formula that Bent is comprised of. Karl Urban plays a shamed detective who is in trouble with the law and a drug lord. Sides are blurred as he’s wrapped up in a government conspiracy. The film delivers exactly what you’d be looking for in this sort of genre, explosions, shootouts and plot twists. It’s entertaining with good action sequences.

I liked Urban in this sort of role. He has this “coolness” about it. Kinda suave also, but gets dirty when he has to. This role comes natural to him. Sofia Vergara and Andy Garcia play supporting roles alongside Urban. If you don’t raise your expectations outside reality then this will be a cool movie that you’ll enjoy.

BENT is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital 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).
