A Bride (Natalie Burn) and a Groom (Ser’Darius Blain) are heading towards their wedding day and they’re full of love. They’re partners in work as well as life and they simply cannot imagine their lives without each other. However, one day our Bride finds out something about her future husband which leaves her having second thoughts and she decides to get away from it all – on her wedding day.
Not taking no for an answer, the Groom sends his Best Man (Cam Gigandet) and his other groomsmen to track her down to her answer why he’s been jilted. The problem is that the Best Man and his friends all have a one-track mind to find and kill the Bride.
Till Death Do us Part is an action comedy directed by Timothy Woodward Jr. and written by Chad Law and Shane Dax Taylor. The kind of movie where the audience is expected to switch off their brain and enjoy the violence.
However, this is where Till Death Do us Part underestimates its audience. It unfortunately says a lot when a movie isn’t even giving the audience enough credit to give their characters names.
This means that although the audience are introduced to the happy Bride and Groom, little thought has gone into their characters. So, when it comes down to the Bride having to defend herself, the audience has to ask themselves why and why they should care.
There’s also the issue of a subplot where the happy couple meet another Husband (Jason Patric) and Wife (Nicole Arlyn), but right up until the end it has very little relation to the main story. This once again pads out an already longer than it needed to be movie, hoping that the audience doesn’t notice.
As a lead actress, Natalie Burn does well but is given very little dialogue for the majority of the movie, only proving herself towards the end besides the sporadically scattered action scenes. Gigandet also gives a performance that is better than the overall movie, but it’s good to see an actor not sitting on his laurels. All in all, Till Death Do us Part is an action comedy which pales in comparison to its predecessors. Treated with more intelligence, the audience may have even come away more satisfied.
