Crisis [Movie Review]

Crisis [Movie Review] | When I read the premise of the movie is about three stories rolled into one, it got me intrigued to watch how this one fairs. 

I've watched several movies with such premises and some flopped terribly. I hope this one will do otherwise.

When a young boy's attempt to cross the border with tons of an experimental drugs failed and he got busted, a drug trafficker, Jake Kelly finds his attempt to arrange a smuggling operation almost fails.

Whereas, another set is about Claire and her fight as a recovering drug-addict and her effort in providing a good life for her son.

And Dr Tyrone is a university professor and researcher who recently discovers that the new 'non-addictive' painkiller that he is currently researching is actually a dangerous drug that have fatal side effects, if it ever get approved by the pharmaceutical approving-body.

Jake is actually an undercover cop planning a mission to topple the cartel empire but the capture of the boy kind of sets his plan off-track.  

When her son's death classified as over-dosed, Claire sets to get behind the real story of the death as she believes that her son is innocent. 

Dr Tyrone is conflicting between having his research being fully sponsored by the pharmaceutical company or being fired by the university for not going through with the research and keeping silent about the drug.

Will any of them have their life's mission filled?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.4/ 5.0 The movie excels in intertwining the three stories into one. It is about what drug could do to the community, to a family and to the society. 

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 The cast are superb and they delivered. 

Will I watch it again: Yes, I don't mind watching it again. 

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
