This is a brilliant thriller and Jackson is superb as the "EVIL" in the title. However I don't want to give anything away but there are other characters who are less than nice in this movie. I loved this and would recommend to any Sammy Jackson fan or thriller lovers.

John (Luke Wilson) sells real estate but doesn't sell enough as the bills are mounting. While his wife (Leslie Bibb) is out for a walk, Samuel L. Jackson stops by and through a series of events, John is riding shotgun in a well dressed Jackson's GTO...a man we know has issues. Jackson acts a bit psychotic, confrontational, and criminal, so much so John wants him to take him back home.

John, without his cell phone or wallet, finds himself in the uncomfortable position where he is at the mercy of strangers. (Un)fortunately he meets Tammy, an office affair and the threesome take off down the road in her car. Jackson seems to know more about these people than he should. Jackson seems to have been written as John's alter ego. He is what the meek mild John is holding inside. Only together can they be complete. This becomes apparent when Jackson proclaims, "We are in this together."

The movie ends with a twist, but not one without hints. The movie was good, and a cut above other "B" abduction type films. 4 1/2 stars.

F-bombs, no sex, no nudity.

Luke Wilson (Old School) is the down on his luck estate agent, whose door is greated by Samuel L. Jackson's (Pulp Fiction) peculiar dressed & oddball personality character, seeking aid for his stalled car. Being the samaritan, John (Wilson) lends aid, what could go wrong ? But as things unfold, John is drawn into an ever escalating nightmare of death & destruction at the hands of this stranger, as he himself becomes the hunted by the authorities for these atrocities, what's going on ?

At what first starts out as a slow & confusing film, some people might not give it a chance & turn off, i nearly did, but i'm glad i didn't, as if you stick with it, Meeting Evil , gradually turns into a decent dark & psychological tense thriller. It bears some hallmarks of various films of this genre, most notably The Hitcher imo. The story is confusing, although it does a good job of twisting your mind & gets your brain cells thinking about what's going on. Is this Richie (Jackson) character for real ? is he payback for some bad house John sold ? is he a manifestation of John's psyche having suffered a mental break ?! your guess is as good as mine.

In the acting stakes, Samuel L. Jackson steals the show, giving a fantastic performance, his screen presence & menace suited the character perfectly, as he has done so in the past in many movies. Luck Wilson was good as the nice guy tied up in all this, pushed to the brink of insanity. The rest of the support cast, Leslie Bibb (Iron Man) as John's wife & Peyton List (FlashForward) as the ex-lover, Tracie Thoms (Cold Case) & Muse Watson (NCIS Mike Franks) as the detectives chasing them down were all decent, although they didn't get much screen time or lines.

In conclusion, despite the slow start & the odd audio where it was a little difficult to hear what they were saying at times (a bit like Texas Killing Fields) thinking i was watching a lemon, it turned out to be a decent tense psychological thriller & kept you guessing on some aspects come the finish. It's more interesting than Jackson's recent film i saw (Fury), but it is still in the same watchable category as that offering. It may however be a little too frustrating for some due to it's style, or perhaps be a nice quirky treat for others. So ultimately it will come down to individual taste's, as to whether or not you'll enjoy it or not, it's that's kind of film. Worth a watch.

Somewhere in this film was a better one struggling to get out. Luke Wilson plays an estate agent down on his luck who meets Samuel L Jackson's psychopathic character who takes him on a murderous thrill ride through the local countryside.
Its a simple enough storyline similar in many ways to lots of other films and Jackson plays a convincing killer but Wilson is an unsympathetic character who many viewers will feel gets what he deserves. Perhaps the casting of two Pugsley lookalikes as his kids was to evoke that response.
Although there are many killings they all occur off screen and therein lies the weakness of this film. If they had all taken place on screen it would have been far more exciting and appealing to the audience for this sort of movie.
As it was the lack of action left me watching for faults like Wilson's girlfriend Tammy being described as a 'busty brunette', I don't think so! Also when jackson's description is circulated by the police he is described as wearing a fedora, it wasn't, it was a pork pie hat. These sorts of little faults just demonstrate that someone didn't read/adjust the script before filming.
Overall this was a waste of 90 minutes.

This was a movie what has a very clever series of twist but in the end lost itself with too many plot changes and also deals with issues like racism and unemployment and economic pressures on the middle classes. Some good action scenes and plot changes but we could have done with more scene the wife character played by Leslie Bibb as she was an important part of the story.

Really enjoyed it, if only for the fact It was full of some really funny moments of dark humour, if the story was at times a bit (lot) obscure, still not sure of the ending myself certainly an utter bargain at the price.

Not bad, worth a watch if you like a film to keep you guessing. A somewhat violent and strange crime thriller, which in places seems to lose its way.
