The biggest crime that has ever been committed wasn’t even in the movie itself, but having a cast like Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto, with a promising concept of a murder mystery and it turned out to be…whatever. I mean the performances were decent at least, even if Rami Malek felt a bit out of place here.

This slow burn thriller lacks the necessary suspense to sustain its running time and even the powerhouse trio of lead actors can't make it that interesting. Denzel Washington's natural charisma and Jared Leto's penchant for playing weirdos almost work. But Rami Malek was miscast as a hotshot detective and there really isn't that much violence.

"The Little Things" is like cinematic constipation. You sit waiting for things to happen that never do. This is a directionless thriller that has not nearly enough thrills.

90s Throwback is a Little Entertaining

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/20/2021

When critics compare The Little Things to a 90s-era crime thriller (David Fincher's Se7en is thrown out most often), they are not wrong. The film feels like it would fit right into that era what with cops with opposing attitudes, a nutty suspect and a twisted story (and ending for that matter). But this is not the 90s anymore and The Little Things, while having a killer cast, feels more like a pale imitation and never quite grips you like you think it should.

Let's start with the good - The Little Things has nabbed a great cast. Denzel Washington plays the cop who plays by his own rules while also dealing with his past - this catches up to him when he visits his own precinct only to get roped into a murder investigation that is eerily similar to the case that nearly ruined his career …
