ReelViews for movies starring 'Ian McDiarmid'
A comedy caper that relies more on the charm of its stars than the twistiness of its narrative, "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" isn’t quite clever enough to justify the full 110-minute running length.
With too much material to fit into a 141-minute movie, there are times when the approach feels superficial.
Despite several high octane action sequences, this movie feels orphaned and works considerably better when viewed as part of a greater epic than as a stand-alone production.
A case can be made that "Return of the Jedi" is the worst installment of the entire Lucas-helmed "Star Wars" series.
"Revenge of the Sith" exists not only as a fine chapter in its own right but its existence improves the other five segments.
