In a perfect world, this assemblage of great talent wouldn't amount to such a colossal waste.

A failure of a romantic drama.

This might have been tailor-made by director Pollack to ease Ford into more straightforwardly romantic territory.

A kind of thriller/drama/romance that has an interesting idea and doesn't know where to go with it.

Kristin Scott Thomas's elegant femininity contrasts perfectly with Harrison Ford's bruised machismo in this mature romantic drama.

I am trying to remember what Random Hearts is about, but during the film I was transfixed by Harrison Ford's earring.

Sydney Pollack directs with a risk-free style that's borderline dull.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

A nice showcase for Thomas's talent, and it's a slight departure for Ford, which makes it more enjoyable than watching him punch people out on an airplane.

It resembles the wreckage of the downed plane more than a tale of redemptive romance.

Looks more like a case of random minds.

Wants to be less of a trite star vehicle and more of a serious, contemplative drama.

...guaranteed to weary even the most devoted Harrison Ford fan.

The trailer made it look like it was going to be interesting. It isn't.

The tough, laconic Ford is wrenchingly effective throughout most of Random Hearts, and the story in which he figures is a strong one.

Pollack appears to have taken lessons from Martin Brest about how to irritate and bore viewers with endless pauses in conversations.

It's frustrating to come across a picture that at least offers a fresh angle on a tired old theme, then have to struggle to stay awake through it.

The film has no result--just an ending, leaving us with all of those fine pieces, still waiting to come together.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Enormously boring.
