Leo Brady reviews “Inheritance” on AMovieGuy.com

I can’t say that Inheritance doesn’t go for it all. I’m reminded of how Chicago Bears fan’s view former quarterback Rex Grossman. He would often throw the deep ball, overthrowing his target by ten yards, but you have to give him credit for taking the shot. Go big or go home, as they say. That is what Inheritance is. It’s a dramatic thriller and when family patriarch Archer Monroe (Patrick Warburton) dies from an apparent heart attack, he has left his fortune to wife Catherine (Connie Nielsen) and children- William (Chace Crawford) and Lauren (Lily Collins). Unfortunately for Lauren, dad has also left her a few dark and twisted family secrets for her to handle, specifically finding a man by the name of Morgan (Simon Pegg) chained in a bomb shelter. It’s an intriguing scenario, but when we get to it, Inheritance becomes a belabored experience, with fine performances, drawn out dialogue, and not enough going on. Inheritance would have been a great movie, if it would have just got to the point.
