The girls love this movie
7 December 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is not a bad movie at all. If you look at the Ratings on this site, though, you will see a big difference between men and women. Women (especially younger age groups) love it! Men hate it. It is a very involving love story that succeeds in capturing the emotions. Incredible as this may seem, it is a truly romantic story. The reasons it hasn't done better are:

  • Some bad direction has the FBI's attempts to make contact with the
heroines look really stupid and clumsy, to the degree that it almost blows your suspension of disbelief.

  • Some of the money spent on this movie could have been much better
spent. There is a helicopter sequence involving a shootout that was completely overblown and seemed to have ambitions to look like a movie about the Vietnam war. It portrayed gangsters going on what was in effect a suicide mission, and the real gangsters aren't into that. A more limited and under-stated gunfight sequence (more along the lines of THE GODFATHER; short, nasty and brutish) would have been cheaper and better.

  • The end is rather excellent and courageous, but it shocks the
audience in the way that it NEEDS to shock, without pandering to the demands to indulge the addiction of today's audience for sugary endings, and so the movie gets punished in the Ratings. Nonetheless, maybe the ending could have been handled a little better, to take the sting out of it.

There is plenty of room for a sequel showing what happens next, even though the original was filmed years ago.
