The Stunt Man Reviews

March 13, 2015
Pretentious, overenergized, muddled, intellectually bogus, and very entertaining for it.

The fun lies in the journey. It is a trip of constantly shifting perceptions and sharply etched satirical sketches of movie types. It is also a carnival of bang-up stunt scenes.

Sensationally original.

O'Toole is excellent in his best, cleanest performance in years.

The result is a movie filled with gags and excellent stunts which remains curiously humourless at heart. Stunted, not stunning.

A film that depends on deceiving us has got to play by its own rules. If we are going to be deceived in general, fine, but then we can't be cheated on particulars.

Mr. Rush keeps the film moving busily, sometimes entertainingly, forward. But he seldom offers his audience enough incentive to puzzle through a wild overabundance of riddles.
