American Crime
22 March 2012 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

A pretty average thriller is made much more uh, interesting with Cary Elwes coming in and putting in THE most "What was he thinking?" characterisation and accent I've seen in a looooong while. The story is about a local camera crew trying to figure out who's behind the killings of local women. They receive mysterious tapes at the station, and they're of the women the killer is stalking! This gets the attention of a crime show, called "Amercian Crime" which is hosted as Elwes. OK, now, on to his character.. Try to imagine Cary Elwes imitating John Huston imitating Robert Stack, and you have a pretty good idea of where this is coming from. MAJOR scene chewing from Elwes is in place here, so much so, that, yes, it distracts from the story. So much so, we're trying to figure out if this, yes, is indeed a comedy, the way Elwes carries on. I mean, what was the director thinking? Or was indeed, a "Living In Oblivion" type of thing? (I need to see that again)
