The Interpreter Reviews
Deep in the heart of Africa a United Nations ambassador gets in the middle of an assassination attempt. A secret service agent is assigned to protect the interpreter and uncover the reason for the assignation attempts. A deep political scandal unfolds in front of the agent.
"Vengeance is a lazy form of grief."
Sydney Pollack, director of Tootsie, Out of Africa, Sabrina (1995), This Property in Condemned, Three Days of the Condor, and Absence of Malice, delivers The Interpreter. The storyline for this picture is kind of ordinary and predictable. The action scenes were solid and the acting was better than the content. The cast includes Sean Penn, Nicole Kidman, Katherine Keener, Jesper Christensen, and Michael Wright.

"I stay awake."
This picture was recommended to me by Fios so I DVR'd it off cable. It was pretty good during the action scenes with a few intense moments, but the overall film was pretty average. I'd only watch this if nothing better was on.
