Movie Reviews

Large-Sossamon Dynamic Duo
Blockbuster Cardholder | 07/29/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The worst thing about this moving is that 80 percent of it is REALLY good (worth 4-5 stars). Great performances from Michael Madsen, Michael Rooker, Tom Wright. Every actor pretty much gives the the movie his/her best effort ... except Corey Large and Shannyn Sossamon.

Large and Sossamon are awful. THESE WERE THE BEST PEOPLE AT THE AUDITION? The producers should have advertised the auditions better. They drag the movie down to 2 stars. Sossamon was given hollow, awkward, and mostly unemotional lines and she's going to do her best to make them sound hollow, awkward, and unemotional.

Large's character is a little more developed... although after watching the movie, you wish he hadn't been. Every moment with Large speaking is another moment of your life you'll never get back. Large walks through most of the movie wearing a tie with his shirt untucked... I guess because the writers think that's cool? He just looks like a douche. Even the "unexpected twist" at the end which may explain some of his idiosyncracies doesn't save his character. It just makes you want to punch yourself in the face for sitting through the whole movie.

The movie really comes into its own in the apartment scene with Large visiting Sossamon. It's clear that neither really knows what to do next. Without other actors in the scene giving them cues, they just stand there staring at each other. Or maybe that's what the director told them to do. The whole thing just left me with the weirdest feeling that I was seeing the setup for a porno."
Easily the best movie I've seen this year

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It amazes me that this movie is so under rated and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN wins Academy Awards. Not that NO COUNTRY was not a good movie, but CHASING GHOSTS is a better story with even better acting. Madsen, Rooker and Busey are brilliant in this. This is technicolor noir as good as it's done, on a par with TRUE ROMANCE. If you don't like or understand noir film making, you may not get this. But if noir is your thing you'll love this movie."
Waiting for something to happen in vain

"Slow, confusing and some bad acting. Why was the girl in the movie except for her see through shirt with nothing to see. I did not understand the ending. He did not shoot the "man in the chair" and all the flashbacks suggusting he did seems weak. Did his partner stange a hanging somehow with the main bad guy locked up? How did he get away? I am sorry I did not get it. I even forgot most of the names."
