why not have a plot
17 December 2004 | by (hollyweird) – See all my reviews

After making movie magic in Croupier, Hodges and Owen thought they'd give it another try. Sadly, they fail.

The movie tries to be the usual cold and aloof Hodges who controls the screen, like his heroes control their rage and emotions. If you want to understand what it means to master the tone of a film, I rcommend seeing the original Get Carter. And with Croupier, it seemed Hodges was back and in Owens, he had found his muse.

Alas, this movie has the attitude of those earlier films. But it keeps its distance, not by elucidated characters, but by eluding plot. The first 45 minutes is all disjointed setup. When it finally does come together and the pieces of a revenge drama are put in place, there simply isn't enough story to make it work.
