The True Grit of "The Honorable"
29 August 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This film has tremendous heart. A low budget production generally has two ways to go: 1) cheesy (T&A, unjustified violence posed as 'action', etc.) or 2) in depth character study with a tight script (and hope that people 'get it'). The Honorable is strong in the later category, thanks largely to director Jesse Johnson crackling execution and lead actor Dominiquie Vandenberg's understated performance. Vandenberg portrays a man searching for truths in his present life while wrestling with guilt from his past so well. He's clearly excels at the speak softly, carry a big stick approach. If all goes right, Vandenberg may be a 21st century version of Steve McQueen in the making.
