[6.25/10] Blue Ruin (2014)

Blue Ruin (2014)

Quick Review: Okay, let's face it, "Blue Ruin" is overpraised. Sure, it's an ordinary-looking little film, that is extraordinarily effective at the same time, and Macon Blair's unsettling performance is beyond impressive, as is the simple yet refined direction by Jeremy Saulnier, but at the end of the day, "Blue Ruin" is nothing more than a well-crafted and quietly nerve-wracking revenge thriller with some moments of shocking violence that you will instantly like, but forget soon after you watch it.
