Good People

Thriller . Crime . Action

Tom and Anna Wright, a young American couple, fall into severe debt while renovating Anna's family home in London. As the couple faces the loss of their dream to have a house and start a family, they discover that the tenant in the apartment below them is dead, and he's left behind a stash of cash—$400,000 worth. Though initially hesitant, Tom and Anna decide that the plan is simple: all they have to do is quietly take the money and use only what's necessary to get them out of debt. But when they start spending the money and can't seem to stop, they find themselves the target of a deadly adversary—the thief who stole it—and that's when very bad things start happening to good people.

More Info:
  • James Berardinelli

    There's probably enough content here to warrant a three-hour movie but Good People is only 90 minutes long.

    It could be that Franco and Hudson, while not phoning it in, bring personae that are just too familiar/conventional to spark a high level of viewer involvement. Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    Both stars are in agreeable if uncharacteristically muted form, doing little to distinguish Genz’s pic from any amount of formula-following filler in the same B-movie ballpark.

  • Frank Scheck

    Good People follows a familiar thriller template without managing to be particularly compelling.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    James Franco again, more subdued and less hokey than usual, this time in something called Good People, the kind of routine thriller they used to show on Thursday and Friday nights before the big Saturday double features, back in the good old studio years when the marquees changed every two days.

  • Roger Moore

    Danish director Henrik Ruben Genz (“Terribly Happy”) can’t hide his cards and rarely even tries to. He’s stuck with a script that has “Promise you won’t kill us,” maybe the silliest line ever uttered to a murderer, but that features some dandy threats, some by the villain who doesn’t drive the Jaguar.

    Good People might have been better titled "Dumb People", or at least "People Who Have Never Seen A Movie In Their Entire Lives."

  • Jen Chaney

    What transpires in this adequately acted, uninventive film fails to add any fresh twists to the cash-vs.-conscience formula.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Tomas Hachard

    It only overcomes its deficiencies and gains a modicum of entertainment value precisely when it commits to its illogical storylines and exaggerated plot twists.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    Good People goes from being simply pedestrian to outright preposterous without batting an eye.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Hughes

    Tom and Anna are so thinly sketched that by the time the painfully slow set-up starts to pay off, we no longer care who does what to whom, or why.
