Thoughts on Roxxy

Final Thoughts Roxxy is a crime thriller that follows a lone stranger that helps a woman in need, only to find himself needing to tackle his own past and the guilt that will follow him for what he might have been involved in. we do have a strong cast here there is no doubting with Emile Hirsch, Zoe Kravitz, Emory Cohen and Zoey Deutch, they don’t give us bad performances either, it is more that the story is mostly a drag, never getting into gear, showing us a group of criminals doing whatever they want to each other, as they look to seize power and control. Nothing seems to come off original, none of the characters seem to come off overly interesting or redeemable through the film.
