Birgitte Hjort Sørensen,
A former Arizona sheriff's wife is killed while riding on their ranch property. It would appear a Mexican man illegally crossing into the US is at fault. As the former and the current sheriff search for answers, lives are changed forever.
Mildly Entertaining but Hardly a Terrific Transformation to the Screen of Neo-Noir Writer Elmore Leonard's Work, The Switch, a Book from 1978 and a Prequel to Jackie Brown.
The Character's are Pale Imitations of the Older Versions in Jackie and are Barely Recognizable in Stature or Personality. This Movie is as Bland as This Type of Thing Comes and is Content on a Lazy Presentation that Lacks Period Oomph with Dialog that is Struggling to Make it from Page to Picture.
The Heavy Cast are All on the Same Weary Wavelength and Seem to be Treading Lightly, Much too Lightly, Even for Leonard's Light Touch. The Thing Never Zings and the Fine Cast just Sort of Go Through the Motions Until the Switchy Ending Comes a Bit too Sudden to have Much Impact.
Worth a Watch for the Cast but Bring Low Expectations for a Rather Rummy Rendition of Elmore Leonard. Those that Like Their Crime Stories with Little Violence and Dialog Driven will Like it More than Most. There is a Dull Edge to this Movie and it Struggles Mightily to Make it Interesting. They Really Don't but Almost.
