I think the movie suffers from the same problem that its protagonist, Jack Frost, has. Once you get past the eye candy, the lively music, and the quirks of each "main" character, all you have left is emptiness. With the exception of Sophie, all the other players come off as self-absorbed and superficial. The irony is that Jack's cheesy sidekick, Scotch, probably goes through the most visible transformation (I say this loosely) on-screen. And that is the problem of the movie. There just isn't enough development of the relational dynamics within the movie to appreciate what is happening.
I wanted to enjoy this movie more than I did....
Man...takes me back to those Accenture days...shows you how ruthless corporate America is...
Heat, The Inside Man, and Collateral are my three favorite Michael Mann movies. Every good guy actor should play the villan at least once. Cruise is great and has great rapport with Foxx's Max.
1. Music score is greatly diverse. (The classics...indeed)
2. The overall flow is smooth, and the plot keeps its focus.
3. Love it when actors, who always play heroes, play the villan. Cruise shows he has some acting depth.
1. Mark Ruffalo's Fanning never really materialized.
2. Technologically speaking, Vincent using the cab's computer to view the USB drive contents probably does not happen in real life. I've seen those units. You're lucky to just get text.
Anyone who has "competed" for a job promotion would enjoy this movie. The characters face moral choices throughout the movie, which are sometimes funny and sometimes heartfelt.
1. The internal struggles involved in the moral decision making were very interesting.
2. Gil Bellows as Mitch.
3. Jenna Fischer has this girl-next door hottie vibe about that is very nice.
1. The whole drug abuse plot didn't seem to work and there were some loose storylines throughout the movie.
