Faces in the Crowd starts off pretty well with some nice intrigue and action before moving to the main plot. An affliction that causes someone to be unable to distinguish faces is a unusual to say the least. The concept is delivered well enough even the audience becomes mildly confused about who is who at some points. As the suspense continues to increase the film finally winds down with an action packed ending that ties everything together in a nice neat package.
Acting was decent with Jovovich delivering a surprisingly believable performance. McMahon was a nice addition to the film and contributed well. The remainder of the supporting cast did well and kept the film interesting through the end.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were solid with good attention to detail. Effects were mild but nicely done with good realism. Dialogue was well done and moved the film along nicely as well as adding good detail and insight. Sound and soundtrack were fairly bland.
Overall Faces in the Crowd is an entertaining crime thriller with a solid plot that delivers the suspense well. Genre fans of crime thrillers, mysteries, and psychological thrillers will likely enjoy this the most.
With violence, foul language, sexuality, nudity, and adult themes this should be fine for the oldest teens and above.
Faces in the Crowd is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 3 out of 5
