Review

This is a straightforward home-invasion type of movie.

There are some interesting roles and characters. Kevin James, the comedic actor from the movie Paul Blart: Mall Cop, plays a menacing Nazi and is supported in the quest by a monosyllabic giant. The titular character of Becky is badass enough and the two dogs play useful roles, but the rest of the cast have little to do.

I wanted to like this but it doesn’t gel. Nothing flows and, although the runtime is a svelte 96 minutes, I was waiting and waiting for the conclusion. It’s not quite b-movie material with little over-the-top insanity — although there is some and it’s gory. Overall it’s just not good enough.
