Message from the King isn’t a chore to watch by any means; and there are moments that suggest the more colorful neo-noir that might’ve been.
50
With a slick, outsider’s perspective on the City of Angels and some interesting possibilities that are set up early on, this Message gets off to a great start. But the screenplay becomes a muddle and then a mess in its second half.
40
Ultimately the visual polish and subplots merely serve as fleeting distractions from the weary familiarity of this two-fisted tale.
30
It’s a dark and all-around unpleasant journey to take.
