Twist – Releasing in Theaters and Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 16%

Twist, played by Raff Law, is a graffiti artist trying to make ends meet after his mother passes away. When the local street gang offers him a home, he is torn between what he knows is right, and what his new father figure Fagin, played by Michael Caine, tells him to do.

You’d hope for a re-telling of Oliver Twist, that this film would be better then it is, but unfortunately this one is like for the razzies. This movie looks to be pretty bad, that being said it has Michael Caine in it, so if you love him then it’s still probably worth watching. I really hope it doesn’t end up being his last film.
