Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Arlington Road is a more than competent, well directed and acted thriller with a game changing ending that you just don’t see coming and elevated the film from being just pretty good to being great. The film IS more than its twist however and to be fair Robbins, snarling his way through the film, is great value whilst Bridges is excellent at being ‘on edge’. The films preposterous for sure but if you buy into it (and I really did) it’s superb, cleverly laid out fun. It’s aged pretty and Arlington Road remains a memorable 90’s thriller that’s well worth revisiting.
Best Bit: THAT ending
