DVD Review – McCanick (2013)
David Morse and the late Cory Monteith both star in the dark crime drama McCanick. The story focuses on a shitty day in the lives of narcotic detectives. Morse plays the leading role of Eugene McCanick, the cop with the dark past which comes back to haunt him when his partner is killed covering for McCanick.
A face from McCanick’s past reappears in the form Simon Weeks (‘Glee‘ actor Cory Monteith) and this is where the film gets dark and unfortunately dull.
It’s taken me all week to figure out a positive way to review this movie, it’s clearly a clinic for David Morse – 90% of his career he always seems to be the asshole bad guy who either is stalking and/ or killing nosy neighbours.
McCanick is the second feature length film from director Josh C. Waller (Raze), who can deliver a dark and disturbing tale, but I couldn’t help but continually find myself switching off during the flick. I tried to focus, honestly!
The biggest deal coming out of this film is the fact that it was the last acting gig released from ‘Glee‘ star Cory Monteith, just check the trivia pages.
