Atom User Reviews for The Little Things
The Little Things is ok. The movie had solid performances and was suspenseful. However, it was also fairly bland, had pacing issues, and an unsatisfying ending.
First of all, the previews look AMAZING! However don’t go in expecting like an intense movie where they’re hunting for a sicko. The plot is very different and it’s a slow burn film that isn’t satisfying. I hated the ending like really!? But I don’t know to me it was disappointing and it’s not what you think
pointless in the grand scheme of it all really
I’m in love with Denzel
Ends up being cop propaganda. Leto salvaged the disaster
the movie had a good cast, however, the story was a bit slow for me. this would have been a good movie to watch at home, not intense enough for me to justify going to the theater
So Many Twists. And that last one, did not see coming!
Not bad. The ending wasn’t great but it wasn’t predictable either. Left questions.
Oscar nomination for this one. It’s really really good
Very slow.... ending was not cool
Good, kinda long and boring.
If the director's generally taut original screenplay settles on an ending too cryptic to be fully satisfying, the performances of Denzel Washington and Rami Malek as cops from the old school and the new who end up having more in common than they anticipated supply enough glue to hold everything together. Add in Jared Leto as the taunting weirdo who becomes their prime suspect in a series of brutal murders, and you have a suspenseful crime thriller with a dark allure.
Because The Little Things is so indebted to the tenets of its genre, it can only succeed by bringing originality and a fresh perspective to the whodunit. Unfortunately, this film becomes a victim of its uninspired construction — which ends up being no small thing.
Some of The Little Things’ little things, like the nuances of Washington’s performance, are outstanding. This film is a reminder that the big things are important, too.
