For Whitaker, it is the latest in a line of movies that have disappointed me. He just can't seem to get a serious role and almost every role he is in, is a gimmicky performance. Has he done anything of worth since 'The Last King of Scotland'? I think his acting career has jumped the shark, so they say.
As for Dakota - I didn't like her one bit in 'Push' and my feelings towards her haven't changed after this effort. She has some talent, I don't doubt that, but perhaps like Whitaker - can't she just be a normal character for once? What she did here in Winged Creatures didn't work for me. I would have preferred she show emotion the whole way through.
I had no real problems with the rest of the cast, even if the Guy Pearce storyline was a bit complicated with all the medicine he was mixing into the food. Wasn't really explained well enough I didn't think.
One of our favourites, Kate Beckinsale, was very good but perhaps slightly under-used in her role and I would have liked a little more character development there.
Not much else to add. I wouldn't recommend this one, but it wasn't the worst thing I've seen lately either. Very middle of the road, if not just a touch below average.
