Slice (2018) (DVD REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Austin Vesely
STARRING: Zazie Beetz, Chance the Rapper, Rae Gray
RATED: R/REGION: 1/WIDESCREEN/NUMBER OF DISCS: 1
AVAILABLE FROM Lionsgate Films

In a spooky small town, when a slew of pizza delivery boys are slain on the job, two daring survivors (Atlanta’s Zazie Beetz and Chance the Rapper in a wild film debut) set out to catch the culprits behind the cryptic crime spree.

Slice is one of those movies that are either going to work really well or not work at all. Sadly, I feel it doesn’t really work at all. We are in a universe where Werewolves, witches, and ghosts are all a very real thing and they come into play when pizza delivery people are killed. This sadly has no impact, of course, because when someone dies they just come back as ghosts so nothing feels important and nothing seems to matter because nobody really is in danger. Why should we even care if a character dies when that character will be back as a “ghost” with the only real difference being they have white paint on their faces. Regardless, our wolf is played by Chance the Rapper in a terrible performance and he’s the one everyone wants to blame for all the mayhem. The plot involves a big ol’ conspiracy and plot from a group of evil witches but nothing ever really feels important or seems to really matter.

You might find a laugh or two in the comedy area of this and you might like some of the gore here and there, but that seems to be about all the praise I can give this one. You tend to usually get a lot better results with an A24 film, but I guess this one getting a DVD only release probably should have set off a few alarms heading into this one. It’s am an ambitious movie if nothing else, but it really doesn’t make for a good movie. It had potential, but I think most of that gets lost in the strange world the movie is taking place in. I think a regular plot about pizza delivery people being killed in a reality-based world with some new school ways added into it could have been a fun movie. What we get here really isn’t.
