Both boring and ridiculous
11 February 2003 | by (Silicon Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie is BAD.

The premise is bad. The villains kidnap the hero's girlfriend so that he'll drive around New York City carrying 5 million dollars in his trunk. Why not just hide the money?

The pacing is bad. A huge amount of this movie is taken up by scenes of the hero driving around in his cab. JUST driving.

The flashbacks are bad. The flashbacks make up the majority of the movie. The hero flashes back to his girlfriend, then flashes back to a DREAM he had about his girlfriend, then flashes back to his girlfriend some more -- given the lengths of all these flashbacks, their relationship must have lasted since the late Renaissance -- then flashes back to earlier scenes in the movie.

The ending is bad. The hero faces down the bad guy, who puts a gun up to his girlfriend's head threatening to kill her, and the hero reaches behind his back and pulls out a *miniature crossbow* which earlier shots less than a minute before had established was NOT there. The hero shoots the villain through his wide-open mouth, which was probably wide open in astonishment at such a ridiculous Deus-Ex-Machina.

One video store owner said he would give 10 free rentals to anyone who rented The Glass Jungle from him and could say, with a straight face, that he/she liked the movie. No one ever got the free rentals. That's how bad this movie is. You can't even LIE about it being good.
