Implausible plot, wooden acting
- Derailed review by RP
I've watched a few Clive Owen films lately, wondering if he was always such a wooden actor, and came across this one. Well, I can confirm it – he is indeed made of wood :)
If you like films where you don't have to think very hard and prefer to just sit and let it wash over you, then this just might be for you. The plot line is simple if not silly. Clive Owen meets woman on train, almost has an affair, but is assaulted then blackmailed for every penny he has, then seeks revenge. There are a couple of fairly obvious twists, but I won't spell them out here.
Jennifer Aniston, Clive Owen, Tom Conti – some well known actors here, but you'll have to suspend your disbelief at the implausible plot. Also, be warned that there is plenty of f-ing and blinding. And did I mention the wooden acting? I really can't recommend it, but I guess it's worth 2 stars – I have seen worse...
