What if Tommy Wiseau directed Silence of the Lambs?

YIKES what a stinker!!! I was lured into this dung heap by a shockingly high IMDB score made entirely of sock-puppet accounts made just to review this thing. The acting and writing arw that of high school theater. When I took a screenwriting class they handed us a list of cliches and im pretty sure the makers of "A Dark Foe" used it as a script. The only thing remotely entertaining in this trash fire is the gratuitous gore which has some actually nasty practical work done. Even the scalpings and shootings have goops and gobs of viscera splatting as if this was some Troma or Eli Roth production. Throw in some rape, childhood trauma, sex trafficking and "deconstructive" racist charicatures to the mix to make it "edgy" and "shocking" but "meaningful" and "relevant" (registered trademark) and you got one that young and old should skip.

Waste of a Cast

Horrible casting, but a great cast if that makes sense. Some great actors in horrible roles. Scenes did not flow well.in to one another. Dialogue was horrible.

A good film for mature audiences

The mental health, the reconciliation, the darkness, and the search for a serial killer, are fed by the pain, and the need for redemption of the FBI agent Tony Cruz. All of these elements trigger the action in A DARK FOE. Tony Cruz was stripped of his entire life since he was just a kid when he had to watch how this man murdered his mother and abducted his sister. Years later this psychopath is still alive, killing and scalping prostitutes, and Tony must descend into a nightmarish underworld to try to stop him from committing more crimes, and bring justice to his family. That's the core of the story. Sometimes epic, sometimes intimate. A Dark Foe runs at a breakneck pace weaving an intricate storyline, with some good performances by Selma Blair, Graham Greene, and a standout performance by Oscar Cardenas portraying as a tortured and sensitive man of law. This is a powerful film nestled between suspense, horror, and gore. Not for everyone. Four stars.
