Technical Wizardy But No Drama
7 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

Damn shame if you ask me! Jodie Foster refused to be the president of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival to do this. Maybe it looked good on the page and it certainly looks good on the screen, specially the opening credits but there is very little else to recommend. David Fincher does some dizzying things with the camera but the script by the very rich David Koepp is just plain amateurish. I was so frustrated by the waste of everything here. The characters seem a facsimile of characters from other, better, movies without being able to nail that extra dimension that could make them, at least, watchable. The husband, the cops even the baddies are all laughable. Jodie Foster has a couple of moments and she's one of my heroes anyway but that's maybe why I felt so annoyed by this movie, so much so that I decided to vent my frustration writing this comment. If you love Jodie Foster, avoid this for her sake.
