Blue Ruin (2013)

Believe it or not, if you are a decent movie fan, you have watched Blue Ruin a number of times before, at least the theme of the movie – vengeance. But probably you haven’t seen the same kind of innocence in the protagonist before. The director has exploited Macon Blair’s acting capabilities and appearance to the maximum. We see a very familiar face, pale and troubled and searching for some comfort. And yet, it is just the external cover to an extreme urge to go to any limit to save the survivors of a horrible tragedy. Blair puts up a commendable performance. Music is awesome and matches the theme of the movie completely. Blue Rain is a well-tailored thriller with a straight storyline. It is not groundbreaking but will keep you at the edge of the seat most of the time. It has won a number of nominations and awards at various film festivals. My rating would be 7.5/10. Strictly for adults because of the violence and gore in the movie.
