Puncture Movie Review

Puncture is a gripping tale of a drug-addicted attorney and his battle to provide safety needles in hospitals. 
Chris Evans in Puncture

Chris Evans of Captain America fame, does a wonderful job of showing the good and the bad aspects of his character, Mike Weiss.

Nobody ever said you had to have a squeaky clean reputation in order to fight corporate monsters, and this true story proves that.

This movie is full of tragic tales which are all based on the true story.

I loved the movie and believe it is definitely worth watching to remind us of those who engage in the fights that matter most.

The movie concerns a late 1990s legal case in Texas involving a pharmaceutical conspiracy that even touches on the AIDs epidemic...

Interview with Chris Evans:

How was it to find a balance between making this character both sympathetic and infuriating, so that audiences don’t get turned off by him and still want to follow him on this journey?
EVANS: That’s exactly what we had to do. It was a matter of trying to tow the line and making him likeable. He had to be likeable. If you don’t like the guy, then I didn’t do my job. But, at the same time, he’s a pretty vile character. Everyone I spoke to, who knew him in life, had some sort of beef with him. I think any guy who’s that brilliant and that genius, there’s a selfishness that goes along with that type of intellect and, as a result, a lot of people get stepped on in the process. It was a matter of portraying the fact that this guy is not the best human being in the world, but not someone you’re willing to write off.
