David O. Russell has reinvented himself as a Scorsese-fueled ensemble director as of recently, but "Three Kings" remains his masterpiece. A visually groundbreaking masterwork that capped off the 90's in what is arguably still the best year for cinema in the last 25 years.
A different type of war film. Wherein most war movies are desensitizing experiences, Russell actually attempts to RE-sensitize his audience, making them feel each bullet shot. It is amazing how much dark content politically subversive elements he fits in under the guise of a wartime romp.
A decent film, Clooney does his normal gritty, dark, thinking man performance. The ending ruins thee entire film. It's got that typical Hollywood bull shit, that it feeds you. At least the only good film Ice Cube is in, and Wahlberg.
Pleasantly rewarding as it unravels. At first it seems to have all the hangups and cringe-worthy racist touches of a macho action flick but somewhere around the half-way mark a subtle layer of complications emerges. It's still somewhat action packed and hollywoody but there's a nuance of conscience that surprises at the end.
Pesant et fastueux mélange hétéroclite de genres cinématographiques qui montre "l'ennemi" imbécile et veule et le Yankee, héroïque et débrouillard. Une médiocre "Busherie" dans laquelle s'est fourvoyé George Clooney... www.cinefiches.com
