Such a low score...
...for such a belter of a movie.
Story: simple but effective. Casting: inspired; who could have thought
Ian McShane (i mean, "Lovejoy"!) could be so evil? And, obviously, Ben
Kingsley as the terrifying Logan. Direction: classy but not gimmicky
(i'm looking at you, here, Guy Ritchie!)
Whilst i'm shocked at this not having an 8 score, i can see why this
might not be everyone's cup of tea; the language can be rather course
and this is a psychological drama between the main characters, rather
than a rampaging monster of an action movie.
If you like your gangster movies with a bit more brains, see this. If
you're a fan of any of the actors starring in it, it's a must-see..
good actor, boring film
I tried to watch this movie from the moment I heard about it until last
Friday, when I finally rented the video. My conclusion is: I shouldn't have
lost any minute thinking about it, that is a boring film where nothing
really new happens. The plot is dull and there's no fact we haven't seen
millions of times before.
Ben Kingsley, one of my favourite actors, saves the day in this "Sexy
Beast". He's great, as always.
For the movie...
my rate 5/10.
