Come and Find Me - A Movie Poem
OK, here we go:

Come and Find Me, a two-hour time killer.
Part of it is hard drama, part of it is thriller.
The cast is unknown, Aaron Paul is the lead.
He's got a hard-ass level of screen presence, he's that dude from Need for Speed.

Aaron's trouper Dave, gets put through the ringer.
He's bruised and battered with his head receiving a ding-er.
He goes looking for his woman where he's mostly not wanted.
He rides subways, takes train rides, it's all clearly jaunted

The opening scene, feels like 2004's Crash.
It's the music, the cinematography, that Paul Haggis mash.
There's shootings and torture and girls gone missing.
There's Paul's character playing detective and territorial pis-sings.

"Find Me" dons rookie director and countless flashbacks.
His name is Zack Whedon and he's far from a hack.
His setting is LA which feels seedy and drenched.
It then moves to Vancouver, which is totally entrenched.

Whedon's film is stylish and his intentions are good.
Sometimes he gets amateur and "Find Me" feels misunderstood.
It's about a girlfriend who takes photos, and leads a double life.
She knows how to use a gun and can kick butt with strife.

It's Mr. & Mrs. Smith, without the term mister.
It's guns and tasers and nasty blood blisters.
"Find Me" is the ultimate, lost persons flick.
A small budget, an Internet release, it's the opposite of a peacenik.

See Come and Find Me if you're bored or distraught.
Aaron Paul is primed for super-stardom, so I thought.
I'm going to give a mixed review which is strong for direct-to-DVD.
Let's go with two and a half stars for the perturbed "Find Me".
