Audience Reviews for Linewatch
Decent modern western/drama [Straight-To-DVD] about a Border Patrol Officer whose past as a gangster catches up with him. Good cinematography. Good performances by Cuba Gooding Jr., Omari Hardwick, and Evan Ross. Decent performance by Sharon Leal and Dean Norris. It was a bit slow in the beginning but as it progressed it got more entertaining. The ending could have been better, it was kind of predictable but it was realistic. Overall it's a solid film, with better writing and a bigger budget [which would have allowed for the casting of a better supporting cast...not to mention a score] it would have been a lot better. Cuba Gooding Jr. is still a great actor; he just needs more big screen roles for people to really appreciate him more.
Totally boring and tedious. This movie is not adrenaline-filling, not twisted with a complex plot, action scenes don't even give the satisfaction to watch, and the characters are not that interesting to care about.
It's just watchable enough if you're already bored and have nothing else to do.
While there is no doubt that Cuba Gooding Jr's. career is on the fritz Linewatch is one of the few good action films to come out staring the one time academy award winner. While Linewatch certainly has the straight to DVD feel (the script is absurd) the performances and action are good enough to overlook all it does wrong. Cuba shows that he can still carry a film and why he hasn't in such a long time is still a head-scratcher.
