Not as good as some claim...
12 October 2005 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I recently borrowed "Fool's Gold" from the public library here, where I live. Figured it would be something the boyfriend would enjoy. As it looks to be action packed, being a crime drama and all. And to say he really liked it. I on the other hand was amazed at how it was badly made. The production values weren't set very high for this one, I think. The dialog wasn't that bad at most parts, but I have to say the acting wasn't that excellent. I was kinda disappointed on Bean's part, seeing as I enjoyed him so much in "Lord Of The Rings". Even the props in this movie were bad though. The gold didn't look anything like gold, it looked like blocks of wood, badly painted gold. And just some of the scenes, the way it was filmed, especially the robbery itself was poorly done. If you like bad British television, then I would greatly recommend this film. Otherwise, I'd stay away if I were you.
