Malone Reviews

  • Sep 06, 2018

    Malone is a disappointing film. It is about an ex-C.I.A. hitman running from his past. Burt Reynolds and Cliff Robertson give terrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. Harley Cokeliss did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.

    Quite easily enjoyable. There are better Reynolds films but this one cuts it if you're new to his style.

    Reynolds went one to many times into the breach.

    Last star for Scott Wilson alone - otherwise this was pretty damn sappy bad.

    Average story, below average acting and basically a cheesy outdated movie which is predictable from start to finish.

    Possibly the worst of 1,000,000 bad Burt Reynolds movies in the 1980s. Basically, Burt plays Alan Ladd's Shane at a gas station in the middle of nowhere, where he has to stop a guy from buying up the entire town in order to forward a right wing political agenda. Arguably Burt's worst, but who wants to argue?

    Entertaining cheesy action thriller with Burt Reynolds, not in his usual style although he stills has the cool car.

    Poor Burt Reynolds. In 1977, he is the biggest star in Hollywood. Ten years later, he is in movies like this that critics hate and audiences stay away from in droves. This one isn't terrible. It is a pretty standard "tough violent stranger fights with rich guy who's trying to take land away from mild mannered folk" story a la SHANE. Reynolds tries to stretch a bit playing it uncharactisticly straight, smug-free, and he never laughs. He and his nemeses keep the dialog hard and quiet. There is violence, but it isn't ridiculously over the top. There is even some fancy camerawork and lighting on a couple of occasions; but in the end it is what it is. Cliff Robertson is a rather ill-defined villain who is hatching some ill-defined but vaguely nefarious right-wing plot, and as usual in these stories the Shane-like character and the good simple people he helps get way too attached to each other way too quickly.
