Simon’s review published on Letterboxd:
The Little Things is a somewhat unmotivated police thriller. It's especially the ending that is so lackluster and so deeply unsatisfying, that I was really struggling to rate this. It tries to be really thought-provoking, but ends up being.. well actually a pretty straight-forward movie.
Denzel Washington, the great actor he is, elevates this movie, even though he's not even trying; Jared Leto, who's always weird as fuck, is really well casted in this movie and gives the whole thing a more rounded flair; Rami Malek, who I've experienced as an all-or-nothing-actor, sadly pulls the later.
There's still a great 90s vibe, the camera work is beautiful and James Newton Howard delivers another great soundtrack, meaning you don't totally waste your time.
