Lot of wind
30 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well,Danny Glover as a black private eye (resisting temptation to say black 'dick.'),is a different touch but it just doesn't work. Glover, fine actor her may be, is hopelessly miscast here. He lacks the necessary world weary seedy persona exemplified by Bogart or even Powers Boothe in the mid eighties TV series.

Speaking in a low husky voice doesn't make him sound tough, just in need of a throat lozenge. Worst of all,Glover looks too old for the part,instead of the hard bitten shamus, he's more like a kindly uncle.

The convoluted story isn't a help either as I was confused more than entertained. Another triumph of style over substance, it's all very 'film noir' with low lighting and deep shadows but at the end, it's also a bit dull as well. A little more pace and a bit of action would have helped the flow and kept the interest.

Can't fault the cast for trying to pull off a decent stab at an old fashioned private eye story but it just doesn't work in the end.
