Soderbergh made three movies about the heist where crime pays (the Oceanic trilogy), and then he made one where a family curse implied it wouldn’t (“Logan Lucky” ). In “No Sudden Moves,” capitalism’s paycheck is death, and the best one can hope to receive is their life spared for a change.
Don Cheadle and Benicio del Toro, both veterans of Soderbergh’s 2000 Oscar-winning “Traffic,” play crooks held hostage in a corporate espionage scheme. They were at the top, serving the whims of other powerful men with money to burn at the heart of the American auto industry.
Detroit’s use as a backdrop deepens the sub-content due to the decline it has experienced in the decades since 1954, when “No Sudden Moves” was established. Family con man David Harbor, the target of the home invasion, happened to be an accountant for General Motors, founded in 1908 and known as the world’s largest automobile manufacturer until 2008 when Toyota passed it and it went bankrupt. Its name is associated with the subsequent government bailout and the Great Depression, and when the characters in “No Sudden Move” use and abuse each other while seeking their own gain. , which means that the financial benefits are short-lived and they are only twice beyond themselves.
With a screenplay by Ed Solomon, “No Sudden Move” is one of those movies where you can watch it and just enjoy it as a period piece and typically the stylish Soderbergh thriller. However, look under the mask, and there may be more to it. Jon Hamm, Amy Seimetz, Brendan Fraser, Kieran Culkin, Noah Jupe, Julia Fox, Bill Duke, the late Ray Liotta, and a certain surprise A-list guest are also in attendance.
