Watch Silk Road (2021) online movie in hd quality free Based on true events, this film written and directed by Tiller Russell, was one heck of an interesting story. The movie itself was well directed, and the cinematography was on point, but it was missing that “wow factor. It felt more like a Lifetime movie/Documentary. The screenplay certainly had plot and technical issues, but I also feel the casting and performances were off. The characters didn’t feel convincing, except for Alexandra Shipp. I’m sure part of that was failure from Russell to direct his cast properly, but I think the actual casting didn’t fit the actual characters. They didn’t feel dramatic or authentic enough, but instead forced. The 112 min runtime felt longer with the slow pacing and some long dragged out scenes. Nevertheless, an enjoyable and more so interesting watch.
