Frank (Kevin Interdonato) couldn't be a more boring guy, he lives in a white picket fence neighbourhood with his lovely wife Gina (Amanda Clayton), has given up drinking years ago, and his idea of having a wild time is watching the game at the local pub occasionally or playing pool with the wife and friends. But then one of these friends, Travis (Brandon Heitkamp), has the great idea to bring him along for a drug deal where one party shoots the other dead. Frank is lucky inasmuch as they were on the right side of the guns, but the surviving party's boss Mickey (Tom Sizemore) has recognized Frank as his former most ruthless soldier, and since Frank has since turned his life around, Mickey is afraid he might spill the beans (and rightly so, Frank is only inches away from calling the D.A.'s office), and thus orders his right hand man Niko (Russ Russo) to kidnap Frank's wife to keep him quiet. This though triggers something in Frank, and as he doesn't trust the police to save his wife, he kidnaps Mickey's daughter Crystal (Lynn Mancinelli) in return. And while he doesn't dream of actually hurting her and she feels rather drawn to him, knowing him from back then he worked for her father, things are just bound to get nasty ...

 

Basically, Bad Frank is a very tight flick walking the blurred line between psycho thriller and gangster movie, that for a welcome change throws its moral compass out of the window and lets its audience come up with its own judgment over what's good and bad, right and wrong, greatly helped by a directorial effort that doesn't concentrate on spectacle but on characters, a very competent and above all relateable cast, and of course a cleverly structured screenplay that keeps things tense prett much throughout.

Totally worth a watch!
