Two of Britain's best actors go head to head in this knockout thriller from the man behind the monster box office hits Independence Day and Geostorm.
The brilliant Misfits and Mute star Robert Sheehan shines here as the would-be photographer who, along with his partner in crime Carlito Olivero, has a sideline in larceny. Former Doctor Who David Tennant absolutely steals the show, revelling in his role as the sinister, buttoned up Cale Erendreich, a man with plenty of dark secrets who'll do whatever it takes to keep them that way. From the moment he slides onscreen in his sleek Maserati, to the battle of wills finale, Tennant commands the screen with an infectious, effortless menace.
Directed by Dean Devlin, the producer of the Independence Day films, and written by Brandon Boyce (who scripted the superior Stephen King adaptation Apt Pupil), BAD SAMARITAN is an edge-of-your-seat experience that expertly ramps the tension as we realise Sean is totally out of his depth up against the rich, resourceful and merciless Cale.
