Til Death Do Us Part: Review

Directed by Timothy Woodward Jr. (American Violence, The Call) and co-produced by Jeffrey Reddick (the Final Destination series), ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ sees a bride to-be fighting off her Groom and his killer groomsmen after bailing on her wedding.

In a similar vein to 2019’s ‘Ready or Not’, ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ looks to be following the concept of bride fighting for her life against her groom’s family/friends. 



The acting is pretty good: the Bride (Natalie Burn – The Expendables 3, The Enforcer) and Groom (Ser’Darius Blain – Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, The Big Leap) have great chemistry as a strained couple who are under the rules of the situation they find themselves in. While the Groom still loves his bride, he also understands that these rules they live under must be obeyed so will go through this wedding no matter what. But, for the first hour of the film, he cares for her and doesn’t want to see her hurt, something that is very clear. Meanwhile, the Bride has already chosen to leave the life that they’ve struggled with together, leading to her fighting for her life. And she does a great job of acting like a calculating but potential victim to the groomsmen that are hunting her. 

While the Groom is in love with Bride and doesn’t want to see her hurt, the Groomsmen see things differently. Talks of violence start to emerge soon enough and, thus, the fighting and killing sequences begin. And they’re the strongest aspect of the film; each sequence is unique and extremely enjoyable. Not only is each fight well-choreographed, but each one utilizes a different weapon, e.g.: one uses punches and kicks while another uses a knife, and a chainsaw is even used! But, despite the threat the Groomsmen should hold, most of them don’t get enough screentime until they’re killed. And, when they do get some screentime, it’s to talk outside about trying to find the Bride. And thus starts the issues that ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ has. 

The biggest issues with the film is its editing and writing to an extent. The film, overall, is in need of another edit; a lot of the 1hr 50minute runtime is taken up by the Groomsmen discussing what to do with the Bride as well as flashbacks to how the story got to this point in time. With an idea like this, expectations would lead to believe that this would be a fast-paced action horror film, but it isn’t; it is, instead, a very slow paced film that could’ve taken that time to develop its characters sooner. But some scenes are wasted and could’ve easily been cut completely or shortened to make the pacing smoother. And, when the character development does start to appear, it’s far too late, leading to a vague/no idea of what the motivations are for the Groomsmen before the reveal happens. ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ should be a simple, straight forward story but, due to the vague dialogue, it’s instead complicated and, at times, difficult to follow. 

‘Til Death Do Us Part’ is a fun concept, and much in the same territory as ‘Ready or Not’ but is in need of another edit. Not only is the dialogue extremely vague a lot of the time, but a lot of the scenes could easily be shortened to make this unnecessarily slow-paced film flow more smoothly. However, the fighting sequences are its strongest aspects and are the most enjoyable moments in the film. The cast also do a great job with the script that’s been given to them and are enjoyable to watch. While it is worth a watch, ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ would’ve benefited from another look in the editing room.
