This is Martin Bonner: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: This is Martin Bonner opens in a prison, as an inmate (Demetrius Grosse) meets with two men to discuss the possibility of participating in a program designed to help convicts reintegrate to life on the outside prior to their release. Hearing about the lack of concrete benefits for him and spotting a picture of Jesus on the brochure, the inmate turns the conversation around on one of the men, noticing that he seems to be new in his job. The man, whose name is Martin Bonner (Paul Eenhoorn), confirms that he is in fact a recent transplant both to Reno, Nevada and to his current position. Martin’s complete honesty and accessibility in that first scene is completely exemplary of his character, and a positive testament to this understated, enjoyable film. (Cinema, This is Martin Bonner) B+/A+
