Storyline

Jeremy Rollins is a young man with a very strange affliction. He has the uncanny and uncontrollable ability to deflect any physical attack and its associated pain and injury to the attacker's closest relationship. Born with this condition, Jeremy's mother had the foresight to home school him and limit his contact to the outside world. She feared that if he were ever discovered, men in white coats would conscript and subject him to unspeakable experiments. This upbringing makes him awkward and childlike, and upon the unexpected passing of his mother, Jeremy is forced to confront a corrupt town and face the realities of a harsh society and the cruelties of its people. He encounters a variety of unsavory town folk - a dominating bully who is the sheriff's son, the sheriff who is in the pocket of a corrupt banker, a gold-digging temptress and a reverend who has lost his way. But a local waitress, Jess, who sees something very special in Jeremy, befriends him. Through a series of physical ...

I've Just Wasted Almost 2 Hrs of My Life!
28 February 2017 | by bobbyistexasSee all my reviews

When God allowed man to create technology, specifically visual media, I am under the firm belief that he did not foresee the future and realize that a group of people with apparently a lot of resources to waste would come together and create this "disasterpiece" of a cinematic trainwreck titled "A Better Place". Would I have chosen this to watch if more options were available? No. But unfortunately for me, I chose to wake up and start my day by taking a chance on watching a movie that was unheard of and unknown to me in any way. I wish God would have had mercy on my soul. First off the lead role is acted out by this idiot we're supposed to take seriously as an adult who was sheltered and locked away by his mother to protect him. However, the acting is soooooo bad that we find the lead character's personality similar to Todd Cleary, who is the confused, withdrawn and possibly gay son of the Senator in the movie Wedding Crashers (2005). I'm not going to give away any spoilers but just remember what I told you about the amount of time you've wasted away from your life the moment you get to the part in the movie where the bright golden spotlight shines on the lead character and the special effects start dancing on your screen. You have been warned. Look, if you're dead set on committing Movie Suicide believe me there are wayy lest painful ways to do so. Consider jumping off of a high building, landing head first onto a crowded downtown street and almost instantly being pummeled by multiple cabs and Uber drivers who didn't notice your pancake shaped torso awkwardly blending in with the rest of the trash and discoloration on the street. I promise you that would be less painful. As for this movie. This is not a movie. This is the perfect way to kill your enemy and get away with it. So buy as many copies as you need and get to mailing them out. Your life will be better 2 hours after they receive it. #justbobbysopinion
