How to Watch “Johnny & Clyde”?: From Romeo and Juliet to Bonnie and Clyde, we have been immortalizing love stories for ages. Romeo and Juliet were teenage lovers whose story ended in a tragedy, and Bonnie and Clyde were criminals who met their grim fate. Despite the love stories and people being imperfect, they still are with us after so long. Writer-director Tom DeNucci’s latest release, “Johnny & Clyde,” starring Ajani Russell, Avan Jogia, Tyson Ritter, and Megan Fox, is the latest take on Bonnie and Clyde’s love story but with a twist. The film follows serial killer duo Johnny and Clyde on a murder spree.
Based on the real Bonnie and Clyde story, DeNucci and co-writer Nick Principe tell this genre-bending story of serial killers Johnny(Ajani Russell) and Clyde(Avan Jogia) being madly in love with each other while painting the city red with the blood of their victims. Eventually, they decide to go on their last job, which is robbing a Casino depository called Cash Room.
But little do they know that the casino is owned by Crime Boss Alana Hart(Megan Fox). Johnny and Clyde assemble a team for the job, which consists of The Butcher (Principe), The Baker (Chris W, Harris III), and The Candlestick Maker (Robert Lesardo). On the other side, Alana gets aware of their little plan and hires one of the best security teams on the planet with the help of Bawkas, a man of unmatched caliber. And the story begins with this cat-and-mouse race of who will be the winner.
There is a healthy blend of action, comedy, and horror in this crime thriller. As Alana becomes aware of Johnny and Clyde’s plans through Randall Lock, who lost his daughter as one of Johnny and Clyde’s victims, she is happy to help him get his revenge, Moreover, it fulfills her own agenda and establishes an example. A tale of love laced with blood and revenge is definitely an attractive trope for cinema lovers.
