Synopsis:
Disgruntled office worker Bob Maconel (Christian Slater) is having another bad day at work. Trapped in his dull cubicle, mostly ignored by his co-workers and bullied by his superiors, Bob daydreams of blowing his office skyscraper sky-high, before ending his own miserable existence. But on this particular day, Bob is transformed from potential killer into accidental hero when another stressed employee beats him to it and opens fire. Unfortunately, going from zero to hero in the blink of an eye has its downside and soon Bob finds himself closer to the edge than ever before.

Directionless - He Was a Quiet Man review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert
16/08/2010

You’re thrown straight into the action here as Christian Slater’s bullied office drone is already working out who’s going to get the bullet at the start of the film, but things take an unexpected turn as someone else beats him to it- and having played its ace card with the workplace shoot-out so early, the movie appears unsure how to fill the next 70 minutes. There follows some pitch-black comedy as he tries to help “24”’s Elisha Cuthbert, crippled in the shooting, to end it all and starts up an unlikely and faintly creepy relationship with her. It has its moments, but any movie that gives a goldfish better lines than William H. Macy has surely missed a trick.
