Though it may well end a bit flat and not really know how to end it in general the majority of this is funny and interesting. Brosnan pus in a great performance and Kinnear is good for being the total opposite and playing it convincingly. It also looks great, the soundtrack is top notch, the supporting cast is good and the whole attitude of it right from the off is totally unexpected.
Since I am a huge car and engineering fan this was a very interesting and enlightening film about a man and his invention that I didn't know all that much about. It also has a great cast, is well acted, love the score, it looks great and it never drags.
This hugely suspenseful action thriller has a superb pair of leads, awesome dialogue, well made score, good action and a sly humor about it. It also shows New York for its gritty realism at the time and though it does have a somewhat simple plot it doesn't try to be anything it isn't and who is to say simple isn't effective because this sure is.
Though it is far more style over substance that doesn't mean this isn't enjoyable. Washington once again puts in a stellar performance, the action is slick and well done (even if not all that exciting), the supporting cast is good and it looks brilliant.
With a fantastic performance from Brendan Gleeson and a brilliant script with a well laid out plot this film delivers in spades. It deals with plenty of weighty issues really well and has plenty of laughs to counter such issues.
