What are people saying?

  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Protégé

    Protege isn't as gripping, emotionally powerful, or cohesive in its cop-posing-as-drug-runner narrative as it could be. Lacking in urgency and stakes for the 1st, the linger on its conflicts to achieve the 2nd, and a tonal intersect for the last one. It may still have enough sparkle in what's there to keep you watching, if not entranced, by it. It's been done better before (Internal Affairs) and since (New World.)
