      Christian T I don't like to trash someone's project, but this film is very poor. Poorly lit, poor script, ZERO MUSIC / score. No character arc and no real plot. High-school filmmaking. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Brandon K This movie was terrible. Every actor other than the main character put on a semi believable act. I actually can't believe I made it through the entire movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Run of the mill stuff. A little slow and some of the acting was a bit over the top. Still, just about watchable. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Has an ending which, though not necessarily unexpected, is at least not the norm. But overall Bad Frank is just another forgettable low budget venture that will fall somewhere towards the bottom of 2017's pile. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Cinemaphiles will likely greatly enjoy the pressure- cooker ambiance that the film creates, as well as a refreshingly "real" protagonist; one with whom our dark sides may identify, for good and ill. Tilling uncomfortably familiar ground, members of our society who have struggled against, been affected by, and even swept along the riptide of Addiction: This poignant, unconventional and emotionally charged picture examines the path of a man who, despite his best efforts at living soberly & responsibly, is [seen to be] left with no alternative to harnessing, or more accurately, unfettering his notoriously reckless & violently predisposed "id" to solve a rather serious quandary brought about from an incidental reaquaintance with a past shrouded in shame, injury, & not a little mystery. Surprisingly genuine performances, woven into an honest depiction of the struggle to keep our beasts caged (and the devastation wrought when self-control is abandoned) MORE than make up for the oddly stilted and somewhat awkward pacing as the story unfolds, and that not without a few moments which will, at turns, impress, dismay, & resonate soundly with the viewer. This is not Hollywood's empty airheaded junk food; I'd personally liken it to a meal you've eaten before, but prepared & served much more satisfactorily & with panache. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Saw much of this in screenings before release - WOW! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Courtney Button Starburst With strong performances and some solid direction, Bad Frank is enjoyable and compelling through its first half but starts to fall apart in the final act. Rated: 5/10 Jun 23, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews
