Silk Road,is just one of those movies that hits you like a hurricane and impresses you with the cast performances that you typically don’t see from them.

Synopsis:

Young, idealistic and driven to succeed, Ross Ulbricht creates Silk Road, the internet’s first unregulated marketplace. When the site becomes a multimillion-dollar pipeline for illicit drugs, Ulbricht draws the attention of Rick Bowden, a dangerously unpredictable DEA agent who uses any means necessary to take him down.

Jason Clarke gives his best performance in Silk Road

Review:

Leading up to Chappaquiddick I wasn’t a fan of Jason Clarke at all then, I saw an advanced screening of Silk Road. I was blown away by Jason Clarke in Silk Road he is really at his best here. If you haven’t been a fan of his yet I think Silk Road will convince you he has acting chops.

As far as Nick Robinson I felt the same I haven’t liked him in anything yet. However, in Silk Road, he was fine in his role. Which is surprising to me, he irritated me in ‘A Teacher’ and Love, Simon he was also fine in, it just wasn’t as great as people were saying.

Nick Robinson is solid as Ross in Silk Road

The main gripes I have with Silk Road are the side players like Paul Walter Hauser, who just chews up the scenery and Alexandra Shipp is severely an underwritten character. Also having to deal with the soap operas aspects of Ross Ulbricht’s personal life really lags the pacing of film. Otherwise would have been much more respected.

Overall Grade: 3.5/5 Stars
