Review & #Rafflecopter #Giveaway: Puncture on Blu-ray

About The Movie:

Mike Weiss (Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (Kassen), his longtime friend and partner, is the straightlaced and responsible yin to Mike's yang. Their mom-and-pop personal-injury law firm is getting by, but things really get interesting when they decide to take on a case involving Vicky (Shaw), a local ER nurse, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job. As Weiss and Danziger dig deeper into the case, a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy teeters on exposure and heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense. Out of their league but invested in their own principles, the mounting pressure of the case pushes the two underdog lawyers and their business to the breaking point.

Produced and co-directed by Adam Kassen and Mark Kassen, PUNCTURE also stars Michael Biehn, Jesse L. Martin, Roxanna Hope, Tess Parker and Kate Burton. The film was written by Lopata from story by Ela Thier and Paul Danziger and was executive-produced by Jeffrey Gou & Joan Huang, Paul Danziger and Rod de Llano & Craig Cohen. PUNCTURE had its world premiere at the Tribecca Film Festival and opened in theaters September 2011.








My Thoughts: 

After reading this film's synopsis, I knew I had see Puncture.  I really enjoy watching movies that are based on true events, especially when they have dreamy eye candy like Chris Evans.  Puncture is one of those movies that sticks with you.  It reminds you of just how sad the world we live in can be.  Money often times triumphs over what is right, even when it puts lives at risk.  Puncture has a moving plot and tells a very important story.  The only thing that I found wrong with this movie was that there were a few parts when the camera wasn't steady.  Other than that, it is a great film.
