The Last Thing He Told Me movie review (2023)

 Is he just on the run because of the potential charges related to his current job, or is something else going on?

 While the authorities, including a suspicious cop named Grady (Augusto Aguilera, easily the best thing about this production), investigate what Hannah and Bailey may have known about their missing loved one, the two try to piece together where Owen might have gone.

 Everything about these characters is frustratingly lazy.

 And I’m convinced that no one involved in this production has actually met a teen girl going through severe trauma and crisis—they’re capable of leaving their issues behind when the world is falling apart.

Viewers of a thriller like this are willing to put up with insane coincidences—look at the success of Netflix's “The Night Agent,” for example—but “The Last Thing He Told Me” doesn’t bother to be escapist fun.

And I’m convinced that no one involved in this production has actually met a teen girl going through severe trauma and crisis—they’re capable of leaving their issues behind when the world is falling apart. 

He’s effective and engaged with what’s happening around him like no one else is.
