Straight-forward; candid movie
2 May 2003 | by (hollywood, earth) – See all my reviews

Pick this movie up for its content, plot, and up and coming stars. Pretend this movie is "Fugitive" for people who think Harrison Ford is, justifiably so, too old.

Luke Wilson portrays the angst-ridden, quasi-loser, nice-guy-finishes-second last in a way only he can. He is the victim of a boring, cheating wife, a slice d' la ass in Mili Avital, who detaches from the marriage for Norman Reedus, the Prada model turned unwashed actor. Norman really takes the movie cinematography to a new level with his brilliant and piercing blue eyes - boring down on real or imagined foes with great alacrity and recompence.

The man for whom Oscar's are no stranger, a thespian in every sense of the word, none other than Dennis Farina - the shrewd and wise Miami cop turned private eye in Seattle. Dennis may have been strong in Saving Private Ryan and Get Shorty, but dominates this movie with his composure and sleuth skills.

Even the extras are true to life. During one particular scene when the chase begins, Wilson is seen eating in a low end diner. Stereotypically, the cook looks like a bitter old cook, the Seattle locals look grungy and flannel-clad, and the policeman looks like an FBI agent.

Overall, a strong recommendation for a Friday night at home. You won't be dissapointed with the chase, plot, and eventual outcome.
