The Guest (Adam Wingard – 2014) B+

He shows up saying he was a friend of the family’s son, who was killed in Afghanistan. He’s not really lying about that but he he has a bit more baggage than your average soldier. Dan Stevens plays this soldier called David and he does an excellent job as a dry, robotic killing machine. There’s not a ton of plot here, it’s excellent for the dynamic pacing, Stevens’ performance and the fun action set pieces.
