Movie Review: Phantom Halo

                                                        Phantom Halo Review
Phantom Halo is about a family of con artist that aren't doing so well largely because of their father Warren's(Sebastian Roche) being very irresponsible with their money since he drinks and gambles it all the way. The sons Beckett(Luke Kleintank) and Samuel(Thomas Brodie-Sangster) makes the money for the family with a con that involves Samuel performing Shakespeare in the street while Beckett steals money from the crowd. Tensions are high in this family from the start with them being low on money because of Warren and because of the way he constantly accuses his sons of stealing from him despite the fact that they are ones that earn the money for the most part. One of the things that Warren gets most angry about is the fact that Samuel is a fan of the comic Phantom Halo and sometimes buys issues of it.

Once Beckett is approached by a man named Roman(Gbenga Akinnagbe) who his father owes thirty-eight thousand dollars to and he tells Beckett that if he doesn't get Roman the money within a certain amount of time he will kill Samuel. After hearing this threat Beckett starts working with an old friend Larry(Jordan Dunn) in a money laundering scheme in order to make the money that his father owes in time. Things seem like they are going to be okay for awhile but then soon things take a turn for the worse and everyone's life is in danger by the end.

Overall I enjoyed this movie I felt that the story was pretty interesting and I thought all the actors did a good job in the movie. This movie was one that turned out differently than I thought it would but overall it was still a good story that was told. Please tell me your thoughts on this movie in the comments below.
