With The Little Things (2021) coming to Blu-ray & DVD from May 19th, Walkden Entertainment revisits the film and focuses on the film’s star power, which consists of Denzel Washington, Rami Malek & Jared Leto.
The Little Things follows Joe Deacon (Denzel Washington), who used to be a top detective until the stress caught up with him. Now, working as a Deputy Sheriff, he’s been requested to go back to his old Police Station in Los Angeles to collect evidence. While waiting at his old station, he begins to talk to his old co-workers and soon hears the word about a series of murders that sound similar to one of his old unsolved cases. Soon he is invited to team up with the leading detective currently on the case, Baxter (Rami Malek). Together, the two will try to catch the serial killer who has taken many young women’s lives.
Fun fact, all three leads of this film have all won an Oscar.
Denzel Washington: Best Actor- Training Day (2002) & Best Supporting Actor- Glory (1990)
Rami Malek: Best Actor- Bohemian Rhapsody (2019)
Jared Leto: Best Supporting Actor- Dallas Buyers Club (2014)
When watching a film with a cast line up of this calibre, you expect great things. The actors do not disappoint. It was evident from the very start that the performances are incredibly positive, particularly from Denzel Washington & Jared Leto.
Denzel Washington’s performance is compelling. The leading character of Joe (played by Denzel Washington) has a dark past, but he is also a man with a solid eye for detail. Because of Denzel’s skilled performance, we also see that Joe is compassionate about lives lost, even more so when justice has not been served. Jared Leto brings alive a character full of mystery. It is very easy for the viewers to side against him as he creates a creepy villain.
Denzel Washington alone brings an outstanding presence to the big screen but combined with Rami Malek and Jared Leto, and viewers are treated to something unlike anything before. Any fault one may have with the film will not be from the actor’s performances!
The Little Things (2021) is Available on Blu-ray & DVD from May 19th!
