An interesting film in technical aspects, basic formula plot
16 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

Okay, so this whole movie is about a group of seemingly dim-witted cops trying to catch a genius villain. It may seem to have a sub par plot, but the director's artistic touch more than makes up for the obvious and trite plot. It is not a "normal" film in this respect, with slow motion techniques, etc. . . I guess the closest thing to this (that I saw) would be Three Kings - with the bullet embedding itself into Mark Walhberg scene. A slightly bizarre and weird film in terms of technique and what the viewer expects, but still a good film. I do have to say that this is probably one of those films that you either love or hate. As for me, I loved it.
