Movie Reviews

I liked it!
Texasbug | Texas | 06/21/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While I agree this is not the best venue for David Boreanaz (the reason I bought the DVD), I enjoyed the movie. Unlike the previous reviewer, however, I think Boreanaz's strongest role is as a leading man in an action movie with, of course, some of those funny quips. He is so great in Bones and was wonderful in Angel. He's an alpha male and shines in those roles.

As for the movie itself, the plot was unlikely, but most movies are. I liked all the characters and think the movie took some great plot twists. You just never knew who was going to get shot next! Now, that's entertainment!"
No masterpiece but it sat well with me

"I loved this! I fall in love with movies for different reasons. In this case, I dug the way David Boreanaz handled himself; the tension packed angst and disgust. The lead character was just funny to me and I got a kick out of Peter Weller, but then I always have. He was a p***k in this flick. I found the plot to be overall enjoyable. Love Bruce Dern too, so I just couldn't lose with this one."
A worthy directoral debut

"Sure, it's a genre picture, but a stylishly directed and well acted one. First time helmer Ryan especially gets great performances out of the character actors (Weller and Dern) who haven't had a chance to strut their stuff onscreen like this in years. I do wish Ryan's talents in striking a nice balance between action, noir, and drama had been matched by a smarter screenplay (you want the plot to twist more and not just thicken). However, all in all it's a great showcase for some fine acting (not only by the aforementioned Weller and Dern; Farmiga, Boreanaz, and especially Thomas also come off quite well)and director Ryan, who seems to exhibit the same muscular craftsmanship of a young Sidney Lumet or Michael Mann."
