This movie has gotten consistently mediocre to poor ratings from various professional viewers. The premise is very interesting but highly unlikely, and many of the choices of the various characters seem unusual and unlikely. Still, my wife and I were entertained, as a Tuesday evening viewing at home on the Kanopy site it entertained us more than many recent movies.

Very cute but maybe too young Lily Collins is powerful NYC prosecutor Lauren Monroe. When her wealthy and influential dad dies suddenly and the will is executed she receives an inheritance she wishes she could give back. Dad's video on the USB drive and a set of keys gets the story into its main thrust. Lauren has to clean up the mess but has no idea how to proceed.

Perhaps the best part of this movie is Simon Pegg, mostly known for his silly, comedic roles, is dead serious here as menacing Morgan Warner. The rest of the cast are adequate. The story has a resolution but in total it is just a B movie. Set in NYC much of it was filmed in Alabama.

I am glad we watched it, I would not want a second viewing.

Inheritance (2020) is a very basic thriller plot painfully stretched over almost 2 hours handled by the most dimwitted slasher-movie-meat characters you will ever see. Maybe it was even a slasher film repurposed as a thriller at some point.

Every scene in this is as painful and slow as possible. Everything has to be discussed, even if it's completely irrelevant. The ending is disconnected from 80% of the stuff they set up in the film.

The way it's shot it really feels like a video game cutscene, like a pre-mission GTA V dialogue where the characters discuss something they are about to do and then they just do it, but you still see and hear every line of dialogue, even if it serves no purpose whatsoever.

By the time you fast-forward to the ending and they reveal the "big twist" that renders half of the film pointless, you won't probably care because you've seen this a million times (even though so many things in this make absolutely no sense).

It appears decent because it creates suspense that doesn't deliver, with serious plot holes that makes every actor unconvincing. They perform like it's a mega psychological thriller but it's just far fetched money drama. Did I mention plot holes?

Insanely sluggish 2 hour dumb piece of cinema. If this was a short 20 min film - it would've been okay. But this... this is just atrocious. By the end of the movie when everything is revealed you have one desire - spit into the screen and forget that you ever saw this. How these actors ended up in this film - is beyond me. Simon and Lilly are great actors. This movie is beneath them.

"Inheritance" is a direct to video mystery with a mostly unknown cast except for an almost unrecognizable Simon Pegg. 31yo Lily Collins looks much younger, like she's from one of those kids shows on Disney or Nickelodeon. She's really out of place as big city DA "Lauren Monroe", so that's a casting fail, which is a problem since she's the lead. That and other plausibility problems take you out of important moments and make this a so-so storytelling when it could've and should've been worth an 8 or 9 rating. The whole production is analogous to doodoo covered with white icing - it looks good enough to eat but heaven help you if you do! For instance, the whole initial premise that her father barely if at all really briefed her on the terrible responsibility of her inheritance just because someone might be listening in is ludicrous. Fine, you can forgive that one maybe since it launches the story but it's followed by too many subsequent implausibilities you'd have to look past to really enjoy the story itself. It's a shame, because the story concept is decent but poorly executed.

Pure wasting of time. Trust the bad reviews above.

Honestly - the trailer was much better than the movie. I think I just stopped believing anything about this movie when Lily Collins is the DA in a big city. Sorry, but I gotta say - horrible casting - she looks like she is in Elementary School...and come on, Simon Pegg? I love the man, but not in this role. Oh, I could break it down, but why bother?
