A movie that's a lot better than it really should have been. Director Neil Jordan elevates a mediocre script into something with style and subtlety, helped along by excellent performances from Jodie Foster and Terence Howard. The heavily coincidence-relying story is predictable and stretches credibility at every turn, and is capped off by an improbable ending. A very uneven film.
Vigilantism, Jodie Foster, and Neil Jordan mean I'm in, but I was held off by bad reviews. It's okay, only instead of our brave vigilante taking to the streets and searching out trouble, she circumstantially stumbles into it (VO is aware of this strangeness). It has great camerawork and some nice dialog, but one wishes with the remnants of camp that Jordan went all In Dreams on the script. --PolarisDiB
Dear New York, I hate your daily coincidences, you are predictable and stretch credibility at every turn, most of my days with you are capped off by an improbable ending. Such an uneven life...
regarding this movie, ditto on Christopher Smith's comments
