PLAYING WITH FIRE (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì 

Playing With Fire—good concept—has actors who obviously are working for their kudos. Tyler Mane has versatility. He could play both tough or sentimental characters well. Despite these good points, the movie lacks a certain connection to its audience and fails to entirely satisfy.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The movie seems out of joint from its concept.
