Edge-of-the-seat suspense crime thriller!

No Good Deed is an edge-of-the-seat suspense crime thriller! You will not be able to get up when you are watching this movie (although to be frank, there is nothing NEW in the story)!

NOTE: Don't believe some jokers who think the movie is Boring!

The director, Sam Miller, has done a mature job of maintaining the aura of suspense in each and every scene.

The Background Music and the slow Pace of the film, all contribute to transfixing the minds of the audience to the screen. In fact, I prefer this more than any noisy, rapidly-edited & fast-faced suspense movies.

The Screenplay is tight and crispy!

The Acting is very, very decent. But Idris Elba looks slightly friendly to be a heartless killer. Perhaps a beard, Hoodie and a wicked gaze would have done the trick.

I won't say anything more for fear of giving away details of the movie (esp. a small twist towards the end). Just watch this Short, Simple and Suspense-ridden film in any movie channel of your choice.

A good, old-fashioned psycho thriller

NO GOOD DEED is a fun little throwback to the type of psycho thrillers that were all the rage in the early 1990s. It's essentially a two-hander between Idris Elba's escaped convict and Taraji P. Henson's suburban mother. Elba is a long-established screen presence and it's no surprise to find that he's very good in his role here, bringing a kind of physical domination and burning intensity to the part; it says something that he's more than just a one-dimensional bad guy. I have no idea who Henson is but she acquits herself with the sympathetic role well. The budget is clearly low but the violent events are staged with relish and there's a good helping of suspense to boot.

Generic but Enjoyable for Cheap Thrills

What do you expect from a run-of-the-mill crazed criminal terrorizes an innocent woman? Not much I would hope, but there is some decent thrills to be had if one turns off the overly analytical part of the brain.

Idris Elba delivers a solid performance as psychopathic killer Colin Evans, the film's antagonist. Elba uses subtle menace and his husky vocals (convincing American accent included) to convey the evil within Colin instead of being a caricature of an over-the-top madman. The actor also makes his violent actions erupt like a volcano rather than methodically killing his prey; Colin kills in fits of rage than planning out his deeds, but his mind games are planned methods of psychological torture and threats of harm. Too bad the actor's ultimate demise is generic with the plot of a home invasion film like 'The Hand that Rocks the Cradle'.

Actress Taraji P. Henson also delivers solid work as the film's heroine, Terry. Henson comes across as the typical bored housewife who gave up her dreams to raise her kids and longs for excitement in her life. However Terry's world is turned upside down when Colin shows up and she is initially not too suspicious of her guest. However Colin's behavior soon unnerves her and Terry doesn't hesitate to start acting on removing him from her home. Henson does not become a stereotypical damsel in distress as she combatively attacks Elba's Colin and is able to protect herself throughout the chase scenes and of course triumphs in the end.

The film's script is generic for a thriller of the home invasion genre with the psychotic killer, innocent homeowner on her own and of course plenty of killings and chases. The film does contain some genuine tension and some jump scares. The chemistry between the leads is believable as the tension mounts and you wonder how Henson's Terry will escape and Elba's menace spooks the viewer as much as Terry.
