Good intentions, 9 February 2010
Author: rzajac from Taichung, Taiwan

I loved Dunbar in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and I straightaway went prowling for something else showcasing his obvious talent.

Jada is a flawed movie. It's got some saving graces--of which the presence of Dunbar is one--but it suffers from some poor writing, and shaky pacing and scenario work. It's too bad! I'd love to see a superbly written/directed/edited vehicle for Dunbar. I wish the best for his career.

A side note: I'm not averse to religious messages, but to-date I've only found really satisfactory treatment of faith issues in films with no explicit religious agendas.
