Movie Reviews

Pulp Fizzle
David Baldwin | Philadelphia,PA USA | 04/29/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Fan's of the original "Get Carter" be forwarned. "Pulp" may have reteamed star Michael Caine and director Mike Hodges but lightning has not struck twice here. The story, when not incoherent, meanders and Hodges' stabs at dark comedy crash down with a resounding thud. Even at an an economical 95 minutes the film seems to drag. Lone redeeming qualities here are the ever charismatic Caine and an all too abreviated appearance by Mickey Rooney as an exiled film star."
Overlooked Gem in the Michael Caine Catalog!!

This is actually one of my Favorite Michael Caine films; a Gleeful send up of Pulp Fiction/Paperback writers and Grade Z Crime Films....The film begins on a great tongue in cheek note; with Michael Caine's dry as a bone writer's narration juxtaposed with a pitch perfect George Martin/Euro /Morricone Score; setting the scene....Caine plays Mickey King; Paperback Pulp Fiction Sleazoid Writer; living a layabout life in tropical exile on the island of Malta.... And suddenly; He gets pulled into a labrynthine murder mystery ; involving exiled Mobsters and Illegal Masonic Lodge goings on....... Basically; it's One Big Shaggy Dog Story; and if you are willing to take the ride; it's quite an entertaining diversion....Great Malta locations; Awesome acting support from Mickey Rooney and Lizabeth Scott make for a nice bout of Cinematic Escapisim...Michael Caine Really seems to be enjoying not taking himself too seriously here!!
