2 Jacks Reviews

Tina Hassannia
Slant Magazine

The embarrassingly low production value of Bernard Rose's 2 Jacks works symbiotically with the film's botched performances.

False gravity weighs down 2 Jacks, a father-son drama less interested in exploring familial relations than in tut-tutting the millennials.

Mostly, it makes you feel like the only sober person at a party you can't leave.

Unfortunately, these inconsistencies cause more confusion than the magic Rose is presumably going for.

John Huston's shadow looms over the entire film, and as shadows go, it is long and very hard to get out from under.

Bernard Rose's fourth ultra-low-budget Tolstoy adaptation suffers from a slack narrative and abysmal dialogue.

Inconsistent yet reverential, it's a truly trivial pursuit.

Based very loosely on an early short story by Leo Tolstoy, "Two Jacks" has a much less interesting second act ...

Granted, the Tolstoy story had the benefit of internal monologues that clarified motivations and impulses. But a good film finds ways of doing this through gesture, expression and other artful ways. This is not a good film.

Rose's apparent intent is to show how little of Hollywood's Golden Age magic is left today. In that, at least, he succeeds .

Playing these self-infatuated flimflammers, Danny and Jack Huston obviously know the drill. It's in their blood.

It's a reasonably entertaining portrait of disreputable Tinseltown types that should at least provide some knowing chuckles for insiders.

Like the earlier Huston/Tolstoy projects, Two Jacks is cheap-looking and rough around the edges, but there's a confidence about all these films too.
