angol Firstborn is a promising family drama-thriller based on the performance of the great Peter Weller, who could have stolen the whole movie for himself, whether he has a role as a hero or villain, however, it all fails as a relatively compromised movie with a safe conclusion. The makers should have pushed the envelope much more, in a slightly more horror guise this movie could have become a classic horror. However, this is merely a respectably made drama, which could possibly be interesting for audiences due to the supporting cast including a young Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker, rather than for its adequate suspense and a good approach to the subject matter concerning the breakdown of a dysfunctional family.
