Is It Any Good?

Lennie James (The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead) has a rare talent for playing guys like Nelly Rowe, who have no outwardly likable qualities but are still somehow charismatic. Save Me is a showcase for James as both an actor and writer. Told from Nelly's point-of-view, Save Me is a unique take on the hard-boiled detective story, where the detective figure has little in common with Sam Spade outside of hard living. Sure enough, his presence turns a potentially run-of-the-mill mystery story into a compelling watch, perfect for a dismal rainy weekend.
