I mean... why?
10 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I can't exactly remember how or why I ended up seeing this movie, but here I am thinking of the film that stands next to Matrix Revolutions as the worst of 2003. It is that bad. Reasons? Well, for one, this movie contains a brutal depiction of Ben Affleck violently raping the acting craft. There is one reason. Two? There is hardly a plot, but old, cliche gimmicks to create a Rain Man feel in a hit man story. Does it work? Three? No. It does not. And I don't care if people write reviews stating that a lot of reviewers won't admit they liked the picture. I have nothing to hide. I hated it. I'll admit that the picture had two pluses. Christopher Walken's brief speech, and Al Pacino's. Those were the high points of the movie, and I have no idea how they got persuaded to participate in the film, but there it is. They were damn good. In scenes that had little to do with the story. Which had little to do with anything. I won't even touch on J-Lo's questionable lesbianism, or the random suicide attempt by her former lover (who shows up... why?). What can I say? Awful film.
