Netflix's 'The Devil All Time' movie Review: Dark Gruesome tale which can be missed !

Netflix's The Devil All the Time has too many characters, too many stories told that it would have been better to have made this into a TV show instead.

A bunch of crime stories of two generations revolving around a boy.

Plot -  The Devil All the Time

The plot of The Devil All the Time is not an easy one to be told. I will try to tell it from Arvin's point(Tom Holland). Soo much being compiled in a two-hour show. The movie starts with Arvin's father returning from war and falling in love with a waitress, but her mother had already chosen a girl for him. Luckily that woman falls for another person (a pastor in church) and he gets the chance to marry that waitress. Now Arvin is a grownup kid who is bullied by his mates. His fathers beat up a few people in front of him to show how to deal with them. Meanwhile, cancer gets his mother and his father sacrifices their dog to God in order to cure her mom. But his mother dies and he knew things won't work this way. He becomes an orphan and now he lives with his grandparents along with another orphan girl, the daughter of the woman Arvin's dad was earlier chosen to marry. Now there is a story of two couples who love killings, a corrupt policeman and a doubtful preacher(Robert Pattinson). Each story gets connected as the time passes.

Review - The Devil All the Time

I lost the count of deaths which happened in two hours in The Devil All the Time. The cast looks incredible with big Hollywood actors together. The movie is quite dark with crimes, sex and smoking. Yet the director somehow fails to keep the viewers hookup to the screen. 

The best part was the acting, each and every actor shines in this part. I am not indicating it as a boring one, but the movie couldn't be justified in two hours with such a fat story. The other good part is the film music which adapts as per the emotions. 

There is a lot you will see in two hours, enough to keep your attention towards the film. A one time watch would not be minded.

Who should watch this movie?

  • If you like to hear crime stories with much drama then only you should watch this one. There will be some fans for The Devil All the Time too.
