Movie Review: “Bring Him to Me” – Loyalty Tested in A Riveting Journey.



Bring Him to Me,” an Aussie-made crime thriller directed by Luke Sparke, delves into the complexities of loyalty and morality within the criminal underworld. With a compelling narrative and strong performances, the film decently manages to grip audiences’ attention from start to finish.

In the movie, a getaway driver finds himself caught between loyalty to a ruthless crime boss and his conscience when he’s instructed to transport a naive crew member to an ambush execution. As they embark on a lengthy journey, their loyalty to each other and their moral values are put to the test.

Barry Pepper leads the cast as the Driver, a man of few words whose moral compass is tested when he’s tasked by a ruthless crime boss to execute a mission that goes against his conscience. Pepper portrays the inner conflict of his character masterfully, conveying discomfort and reluctance in his actions. His interactions with the persistent voice over the phone, urging him to “Bring Him To Me,” add layers of tension to the film.

Opposite Pepper is Jamie Costa as the chatty and unsuspecting Passenger, whose innocence serves as a stark contrast to the grim reality of the situation. As the two embark on a long drive, their interactions gradually reveal more about their characters, creating a dynamic that keeps viewers engaged.

The two central actors are solid in the delivery and depiction of their characters making the narrative very easy to follow. The film also includes a host of great talents including Sam Neil and Rachel Griffiths.

The screenplay skillfully weaves flashback scenes of the robbery, providing context to the events unfolding in the present. This narrative technique not only breaks the monotony but also adds depth to the story, allowing viewers to understand the characters’ motivations and the stakes at hand.

One of the film’s strengths lies in its portrayal of the characters as more than just criminals. Both the Driver and the Passenger are revealed to be devoted fathers, adding a layer of humanity to their actions. While this motivation may seem cliché, the writing handles it with nuance, eliciting empathy from the audience.

Visually, the film impresses with its use of VFX to enhance action sequences. From blood splatters to high-speed chases, the effects are executed with finesse, adding to the intensity of the film.

However, what truly sets “Bring Him to Me” apart is its major twist at the end, setting the stage for a possible sequel. Regardless of whether a sequel materializes, the film stands on its own as a gripping crime thriller, paced effectively and showcasing the collaborative efforts of Sparke and writer Tom Evans.

At its core, the film explores themes of loyalty versus morality, exemplified by the Driver’s dilemma and the tension between following orders and doing what one believes is right. It serves as a reminder that actions have consequences, echoing throughout the narrative.

Bring Him to Me” may not be a film you’ll want to revisit repeatedly, but it certainly offers a rewarding experience for its 96-minute runtime. 

With its gripping plot, strong performances, and thematic depth, it’s a film that leaves a lasting impression, challenging viewers to ponder the choices we make in the face of moral dilemmas.

As a film that many might be tempted to call a B movie, I will rate this film 6.5 /10.


Second on my list of addictions is Movies.. the only thing I could possibly love more is my Dearest Waakye lol. Nothing else does a better job of reminding me that ANYTHING is possible with the right amount of effort. I have great eye for details and flaws in scripts. Shallow scripts bore me. I am an avid reader. Your everyday Mr Nice guy. Always the last to speak in a room full of smart people. Half Human, half Martian but full MOVIE FREAK.
