ReviewSource The Other View
Review The story in Hero Wanted plays out like a puzzle, where the past and present are like pieces of a puzzle and the entire picture doesn't become clear until all the pieces come together. Everything is played out through flashbacks and watching it the first time, is a bit disorienting...I give kudos to director Brian Smrz for handling such a unique approach, I know a film such as this couldn't have been easy to handle, but I believe he pulled it off. Also a round of applause as this is Brian's first outing as director (According to IMDB) and I think it's a job well done. Writers Chad and Evan Law also deserve some accolades as the writing is pretty tight and the actors handled the dialogue with ease, everyone falling into their roles nicely...The film is rounded out with a great cast. Ray Liotta makes an appearance as Detective Terry Subcott, but he comes off more like comic relief than a serious cop trying to investigate a murder. His character doesn't do a lot and really isn't integral to the story, but he hams it up nicely when he is on screen. Jean Smart, who plays Kayla's mom Melanie, also does some fine work...Hero Wanted is not the greatest story ever told, and it certainly won't win any major awards, but it's definitely worth the price admission. With a unique approach, some decent acting and a nice chunk of action makes Hero Wanted worth picking up.
