Intent is a horror film about a kidnapping in a suburban neighborhood and the ensuing manhunt conducted by the police.
I don’t know how I missed this film before (oh yeah, it stars Eric Roberts) but it looks AMAZING. When I say AMAZING, I really mean that there’s something funny to me about the film.
Eric Roberts, who most of you would know from his role as Maroni in The Dark Knight, is playing the lead detective in Intent. The detective’s name? Detective Gordon. Just like Commissioner Gordon in The Dark Knight!!!!!!!!
Anyways, there isn’t a ton about the film right now, but the tag line is: Regret is the past crippling you in the present.
I regret that Taco I ate out of the garbage earlier.
Tim Crockett is directing Intent, and it’s his first film. I would normally consider that a bad thing, but for a guy who I assume is a descendant of Davey Crockett, how could you go wrong?

What’s Good About It?
The film is billed as a mix of CSI and Silence of the Lambs, but I’m betting it’ll be more profitable and cooler than both.
What’s Bad About It?
Depends on your point of view. The trailer, taken seriously, should make you look elsewhere for your entertainment. Taken as a fantastic ride down the crazy highway, it looks AWESOME.
Our Clever Prediction
Unfortunately, Intent will likely be one of the lesser see films of the year. Such a disappointment.
