unremarkable
7 January 2011 | by (www.subtitledonline.com) – See all my reviews

excerpt, full review at my location - Xavier Ruiz's 2009 police thriller Verso arrives on DVD courtesy of Scanbox Entertainment in an effort to show that the 'peace capital' of Switzerland is anything but; where a hotbed of vice and sleaze act as the backdrop for revenge.

Verso is a film that simultaneously feels like it's trying too hard and not trying hard enough. Its confident visual presentation and attempts at intriguing character dynamics shown from both sides of the law - in a similar fashion to something like Michael Mann's Heat (1995) - are sabotaged by lazy performances, an uninspiring script, and an altogether tactless depiction of Switzerland's darker side. Had Ruiz's directing not been so heavy-handed and blatant, this could've been decent. Instead, we're left with something that's irksome and quite unremarkable.
