Why watch this film?
At first glance, the cast of 'The Little Things' is surprising. Rami Malek ('Bohemian Rhapsody'), Denzel Washington ('Training Day') and Jared Leto ('Dallas Buyers Club') form the main trio. Meanwhile, the plot tells the story of Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe "Deke" Deacon (Washington), who is sent to Los Angeles for what should have been a quick evidence collection. Instead, he gets involved in the search for a serial killer terrorizing the city. In charge of the case, Jim Baxter (Rami Malek), a Los Angeles Police Department detective, impressed with Deke's instincts, unofficially appoints the officer to help him. With echoes of 'Seven', the feature film tries to complicate the story more than is possible, getting tangled up in difficult comings and goings to decipher. Even more so with John Lee Hancock's (‘The Highwaymen’) confusing and personality-less direction. But at least Denzel Washington is a spectacle on the screen, with his tics and quirks further perfecting the character.
