I have never seen a Michael Mann movie that I didn’t like.
On the other paw, I’ve never seen anything Colin Farrell was in that I did like.
So it was with some trepidation that I rented this movie tonight — who would come out on top?
I am sorry to report that the creative spirit-light of Michael Mann is not strong enough to overcome the black shadow of despair and desolation that is the career of Colin Farrell.
I had such high hopes for this movie, too.
Don’t get me wrong, the wizard gun-play and sound tactics and strategy that is the hallmark of a Michael Mann movie are all there — eventually. At the end.
Unfortunately, I was forced to endure countless hours of character development and plot building that went absolutely NO BLOODY WHERE!
If, in a sudden burst of masochism, you decide to rent this movie, do yourself a favour: fast-forward to the trailer-park bit, then pop the corn and pour the soda.
