LET GO DVD Review
Let Go follows the intertwining stories of Walter Dishman (David Denman), a melancholy parole officer struggling with the doldrums of married life, and three eccentric ex-convicts recently placed under his supervision. His three parole clients include a now ex-doctor who got caught in an insurance scam by the name of Kris (Kevin Hart). Gillian Jacobs plays Darla who gets herself into all kinds of trouble like trying to sell her engagement ring from her ex-fiance Frank (Simon Helberg). Last is Artie (Ed Asner) who has been in jail for a long time on theft charges. Now that he is out he thinks he can just jump right back into the game but all his old buddies have aged and settled down.
This movie is just alright. It’s supposed to be funny but I felt more depressed after seeing this film. I wanted to like it so bad because of the pretty decent cast but it just didn’t work out. You just come away feeling horrible for each character and what they are going through in their lives at the moment. The actors do their job on that part in making you feel so bad for them and their situation.
Overall, Let Go has some good performances but fails to live up to the label of a comedy. It should be labeled all drama. If you like character actor work and the actors featured in this film, then be sure to check it out. Check out the trailer below:
