I have no problem when films refuse to be constricted by the linearity of time, but I do take exception to movies that decide to play around with it for no reason other than to confuse the viewer.

A routine thriller marred by inconsistent performances, a sluggish pace and stylistic flourishes that frequently feel affected.

The Limey is no treasure. At best this one would have to be called Nineties Noir, or Noir Lite.

All of its style can't altogether conceal that director Steven Soderbergh doesn't have as much to work with here.

Soderbergh's direction of the film takes the underlying story, which is basic Ross Macdonald, and uses the visuals to add an ironic amusement.

Stamp has done some wonderful work in a long and varied career. This is not his best film, but it may be the most forceful acting he has ever accomplished.

Soderbergh returns to the crime genre, but The Limey couldn't be more different than Out of Sight, except for the fact that it's just as good.
