Critic Reviews for Columbus Circle

All Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (1)

  • More twists are thrown our way, each more predictable than the last, taking Columbus Circle firmly into parody and a climax that is just laugh-out-loud absurd.

  • The story fails to sustain the tension or logic needed and though promising for awhile, it never lives up to its potential.

    October 7, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • You'll likely guess every twist and turn in the plot. But I like to think these movies aren't made to surprise but rather to entertain somewhat passively.

    Good thriller with plenty of twists. Enjoyed this.

    In "Columbus Circle," Hilary Lonnigan(Bette Beatrice) is dead, having apparently fallen down a flight of stairs in her luxury apartment. Except New York City Police Detective Frank Giardello(Giovanni Ribisi) isn't so sure, suspecting foul play. However, he finds no help either way from her neighbor Abigail Clayton(Selma Blair) who only interacts with Klandermann(Kevin Pollak, who wrote the script with director George Gallo), the friendly concierge, in the building. Abigail has also had her eye on the other apartment for quite a while and is therefore distressed when Lillian(Amy Smart) and Charles(Jason Lee) take possession of it. "Columbus Circle" is so old school that it actually has an opening title sequence and a character who writes letters while reminding me greatly of classic psychological thrillers starring Olivia de Havilland. As far as the present day goes, Selma Blair is a pretty good replacement with her side long glances while Giovanni Ribisi proves that he can play a normal character(who probably still has some literal skeletons in his closet) for a change. But with any lazy homage to old movies, the story turns out to be very predictable with more than its share of plot holes.(Who cleans Abigail's apartment, by the way?) While I agree there is no such thing as a criminal mastermind, it would be nice to see some professional pride from a movie's villains. So, as you can see, there is a lot of sludge to get through before the movie's dandy kicker of an ending.

    Intriguing up until the first big reveal, the remainder of "Columbus Circle" becomes a downward spiral of reveal-reveal-reveal, to the point of its twists meaning very little by the end. What helps keep the film afloat is the perfect cast, including some above average performances from Selma Blair and Amy Smart. Giovanni Ribisi and Jason Lee also carry their roles respectfully, turning what could have been a dismal "B" thriller, into a sub-par yet ultimately enjoyable "mystery".

    Plausibility isn't its strong suit, but thanks to some energetic direction, competent performances, and a decent script, Columbus Circle manages to stay entertaining throughout. The twists aren't hard to spot, but they actually serve to keep the film interesting as opposed to hindering it. The ending is definitely its weakest point, but the film does just enough right to outweigh the deficiencies . 3/5 Stars
