ReelViews for 'DRAMA/THRILLER' movies
The story is surprisingly unfocused and plunges into quasi-thriller territory that relies on a series of hard-to-swallow contrivances.
Despite an interesting premise, it fails to deliver much beyond a gradual descent into disinterest and watch-checking.
Although not the definitive Watergate movie, it illustrates an aspect that has not been given ample attention by filmmakers.
The narrative effectively marries the character based-aspects with the mystery-thriller ones.
"Detroit" functions as much as a dramatization of things that happened as a cautionary tale of where we could be headed.
This film’s tone is so inconsistent as to cause whiplash and it frequently substitutes emotional manipulation for intelligence.
"T2" has targeted a small audience and the group that thinks Boyle has again found greatness will be smaller still.
Despite its uneven tone, the film is compelling and, perhaps more importantly, relevant.
Not the best of its kind but aims to say something rather than merely satisfy by copious bloodletting.
