Script and directing failed to tell this story well

Greetings from Lithuania.

"The Guilty" (2021) was a letdown due to very draggy script that was boring to hear. Story is good and could have been shown way better then this. It was written by Nic Pizzolatto who wrote brilliant first season of "True Detective", and later not so brilliant follow ups - to say the least. Unfortunately "The Guilty" is not the one he will be remembered for. Directing by Antoine Fuqua was also not inspiring one - at only 1 h 22 min this movie dragged and looked and felt lazy. Its like everyone behind the camera just did it for paychecks or obligations to Netflix. Only Jake Gyllenhaal who is basically on a tour de force in this one did a good job - given the material. And the material is about a cop who tries to redeem himself via 911 call. By the end of movie we understand the only metaphor is has to say. And one character spills it to us very clearly in one sentence - in case if we don't get it. We get it, we watched the movie.

Overall, I got the idea behind this movie. Movie like "Locke" (2013) is an example that it can be done right. "The Guilty" unfortunately is not the case.

Simple and nice drama...

"The Guilty" is a Drama - Thriller movie in which we watch a police officer working at a call dispatch desk and trying to help a serious and emergency call. He tries his best but he has to be very careful and fast if he wants to make the difference and save the woman who was kidnapped.

I liked this movie because it was interesting and intense through its whole duration. I also enjoyed it because it combined very well drama and action with a simple plot that contained also some plot twists that I did not expect. The direction which was made by Antoine Fuqua was good and he presented the main plot of the movie very well while he presented step by step a sub-plot that was equally important on the movie. The interpretation of Jake Gyllenhaal who played as Joe Baylor was simply amazing and he did an excellent job on it. To sum up, I have to say that "The Guilty" is a nice and interesting drama movie and I strongly recommend everyone to watch it because I am sure you will enjoy it.

Hard to recommend

Jake Gyllenhaal is his usual great actor in this film, but he has a lot of things going against him. First, this is a pandemic movie akin to Phone Booth where everything mostly happens on the phone with one actor doing everything in the same two rooms. Second, his character is not sympathetic at all. I know they were preparing the reveal at the end, but they did it too strongly, making it difficult to care about anything that happens. And it's too bad, because the plot of the film is really powerful. So, when you've got a good plot but can't quite make a good film out of it, I would call this a decent attempt, but a failure nonetheless.

I think the entire thing would have done a lot better if he were this funny charismatic person hiding his trauma than the manic cop that wears it on his sleeve. Based on the IMDb ratings for the original movie (Den Skyldige) I would say it's a better bet to watch that film instead.
