The Little Things


The Little Things
A burnt-out Kern County, CA deputy sheriff teams up with a crack LASD detective, to nab a serial killer. The shereff’s nose for the “little things” proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils his partner in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, a dark secret from the past bedevils the investigation.

128 minutes.

Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote iconAn exceptionally well-cast throwback thriller, The Little Things will feel deeply familiar to genre fans -- for better and for worse.

Jeffrey M. Anderson quote iconFlawed but well-made, violent, bloody serial killer tale.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconIt's still a watchable offering - tech credits are excellent all around - and the three leads certainly help lift the material somewhat above all the familiarity. But the lack of anything new or novel and the third act problems knock off some points.

Rottentomatoes popcornmeter
Popcornmeter quote iconThe story is nothing special and the ending might be a letdown, but there’s a welcome focus on the emotional toll taken by police work -- and you can’t argue with that cast.
