Its chief pleasure is the acting of the big cast, notably Pacino. At 55, he has a haggard, life-wrestling beauty and a street eloquence that has more innocence than De Niro and more sincerity than Nicholson.
A watchable but never pulsating portrait of mayoral wheeling-dealing.
An ambitious but unsatisfying meditation on the morality of power.
Has all the ingredients for a solid drama but instead comes out a half-baked disappointment.
Convincing drama about the moral ambiguity of contemporary politics.
Not terrible...just not that good. I enjoy the portrait of New York City that City Hall creates, but this film really just drags towards its second half. It also has a lot of pointless scenes, and a telegraphed plot twist that makes no sense.
I have to say, I do like my political thrillers like the next person, but human interest and direct emotional connection must always be the primary concern of a movie, i my opinion. This one is just a mess and a confused and entangled heap of intrigue and chess, with no room for the characters to breath and spread the human energy. A stale and dry offering which never clicks, despite the good cast.
The acting is fairly good all around in this solid suspense film, but the script is a little too uninvolving to rise above a level of mediocrity. Pacino is superb, of course, performing with a range of emotions most actors can only dream of.
