The Little Things wants to be a movie absorbed in its meticulous clues and details. Yet, many of its key pieces and performances feel totally out of sync with each other, creating a suspense thriller that stumbles over itself.
The plot “twist” lands with an underwhelming and frustrating thud, as you go from “who did it?” to “is that it?”. My main issue with this movie is its ending. It is just completely unsatisfying.
This might be the one time I recommend skipping a Denzel Washington movie.
