Review: No Good Deed


No Good Deed recently hit number one at the box office this past weekend by pulling in an impressive $24 million in ticket sales. Why? Because even though it’s predictable, it truly has all the Hollywood clich├ęs’, and a storyline we’ve all seen before yet  it still GETS YOU! 

Starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson, No Good Deed is a star studded  suspense thriller true to its genre.  No Good Deed which is the latest project from Will Packer Productions, is a  film  about a home invasion by an escaped convict played by Elba who gives an amazing turn as the menacing, lethally dangerous predator. Henson plays the titular neglected housewife and mother who’s clearly his prey.

Truthfully the novelty of this film comes in the form of two really good black actors starring in this very intense thriller, particularly the pairing of Henson and Elba. In addition there’s an interesting twist which frames the whole purpose of Elba’s character in the story. Henson’s character is the ultimate damsel-in-distress super heroine here and the audience is with her! Henson brings enough intense strength and fear that movie-goers can’t help but become her as she fights to escape Elba’s captivity. Throughout the film Henson proves to be no push over as she is in constant physical altercation with her predator. During one highly tense scene, where Henson appears to be winning, Elba is down and she pauses but in thriller fashion the killer always comes back.

This is just one of the  twist that raises the stakes and dents the obvious ending (although we’re not telling that end here). The typical movie-goer is compelled to get to the end to find out why? But it’s the rollercoaster ride compelling you to stay strapped in. So it’s worth going to see because of the entertaining value of it. . Go see it – it’s a great film and a heck of a roller coaster ride !

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped.
