Audience Reviews for Tempo

This heist film wasn't worth watching. It's fast cuts made it not fun to watch. They were trying desperately to make time pass and make the film have some intensity to it. To me it was just annoying. Even the ending wasn't surprising. The only thing that made it watchable was Rachael Leigh Cook performance. Her role as a semi-troubled young woman was wonderfully well-played. www.what-to-watch.com

Plenty of screen time for the lovely Rachael Leigh Cook, and Melanie wasn't too shabby either, but the plot just didn't engage me.

A very old school 80s TV-film look-alike which including the story, the setting & the editing (interlude). Melanie Griffith was a completely miscast and as a matter of fact she acted terribly awful, like an slutty old mom. Setting of her character was unreasonable in the first place. Hugh Dancy is appealing in this one though.
