Movie Review: Meeting Evil"When John Fleton (Luke Wilson), a depressed suburban family man and recently fired realtor, offers to help a stranger, Richie (Samuel Jackson), with his car, John is sucked into a surreal, nightmarish murder spree that forces him to question everything about his life, his mode of behavior, and the very nature of evil."

If you thought this was a cerebral thriller, you were wrong. It gets a 1 star from every critic and even audiences didn't like it. Samuel Jackson obviously is trying to pad his paycheck by doing these horrible films.
On the one hand it is good to see a Black person as the villain, with intelligence and more to him than just shooting and cursing, however Samuel Jackson has only one setting for his acting, shooting and cursing.
|Luke Wilson as John|
Oh and there is a scene straight out of gone with the wind, where the white woman Joanie (Leslie Bibb), the wife, is flanked by her children and tells off the negro she-cop Latisha (Tracie Thoms). Subconsciously it says "the white woman put the nigger woman in her place", once again. The irony is that the audience is mislead into rooting for the white woman, but we are later shamed because the truly evil person in the movie is this same white woman.

The entire movie is formulaic and as a Black man, we are still subconsciously put in our place. You cannot just have the killer, happen to be Black. The racial undertones were blatant and obvious: nigger stay in your place. But, then again, that is nearly every Hollywood movie, isn't it?
