“Don’t Let Go” (OTL Releasing)

Storm Reid stars in a scene from the movie "Don't Let Go." The Catholic News Service classification is A-III -- adults. (CNS/Universal Pictures)

By Catholic News Service

After his niece (Storm Reid), with whom he shared a close relationship, is murdered, a police detective (David Oyelowo) is startled to receive a series of phone calls from her. Eventually piecing together the fact that she is communicating with him from a different time period — two weeks before her death — he works with her to prevent the fatal crime from ever taking place.

Initially intriguing but ultimately illogical, director and co-writer Jacob Estes’ thriller becomes unmanageably complex, confusing and implausible. While underlying values are sound, bloody images and vulgar talk suggest an older audience.

Considerable violence and gore, a narcotics theme, a couple of mild oaths, a few rough and several crass terms. The Catholic News Service classification is A-III — adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R — restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
