Netflix Movies: Review Of The Nonsensical ‘Mercy,’ Plus New ‘Barry’ Trailer

Netflix recently released their latest in original movies, Mercy, as well as a new trailer for the Barack Obama movie Barry. Most critics and audiences agree that Netflix movies are more miss than hit; while Barry looks like it will be a hit, Mercy wasn’t even aiming at a target.

The Plot

IMDB provides this synopsis for Netflix’s Mercy.

“When four estranged brothers return home to say their last goodbye to their dying mother, Grace, hidden motivations reveal themselves. The family’s already tenuous bonds are tested when secrets from Grace’s past resurface, causing a restless night to go terribly awry as the brothers are thrust into a fight for their own survival.”

This reporter’s synopsis is a bit different.

A woman is on her death bed, and the family has very mundane and ambiguous conversations about her. Masked invaders enter the scene and very mild suspense ensues.
