Last Segment Totally Destroys The FilmReviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 7/10

I really enjoyed this movie for the first hour. It was quirky and totally unpredictable, thanks to Pierce Brosnan's strange character, "Julian."

However, when Julian knocked on the door late at the night in Denver, Colorado, at the house of his buddy "Danny Wright" (Greg Kinnear), the film began to turn sour, and went down the dumper in a hurry. Julian now had overstepped his obnoxiousness and become unappealing. He had flirted with that throughout the first hour but always survived, but now he was downright rude and a pain in the butt. Making this really bad was Hope Davis, playing Danny's wife, "Carolyn." Her character, in a flash, went from devoted, nice wife and ultra- profane "who is THIS person?" and was insulting to any viewer with a brain. For (about) 20 years of marriage, she was clean-mouthed, and all of a sudden come a half dozen f-words out of her in about 20 seconds? That typifies the whole last segment of this film, which really ruined a promising story that was looking good up until then. In a word: it has been "entertaining."

It was a stretch from the beginning, however, that a straight businessman like Wright would ever give the time of day to a drunken, super-rude swine like Julian, but I went along with it because it was fun to watch despite a few questionable homo-erotic scenes. However, when the film takes an abrupt left turn in Colorado, it lost its appeal with characters that had zero credibility.

The Matador, Truly awfulReviewed bymarkscarrattVote: 1/10

This film was truly awful. I don't know if it was meant to be funny but it wasn't. In fact I don't know what it was supposed to be. Early in the film we see Pierce Brosnan's character about to leave a hotel room having obviously spent the night with a lovely lady. She is asleep in bed whilst he is getting dressed. Before he leaves he decides to steal her nail polish and then goes to the bathroom to paint his toe nails. Why ??.We never see that girl again nor the toe nails and I don't really see the point.

Also throughout the film Brosnan hints at his characters supposed homosexuality and perverse sexual tastes, but nowhere does this get progressed in the film, and I was left thinking "why" "what" "where", and "when".

It is obvious that he is a hit-man/ assassin in decline but do you really expect that he would tell Kinnears character what his job was within 5 minutes of meeting him in a bar in Mexico.

To make matters worse they then both go to a bullfight and Brosnann decides to show Kinnear a few tricks of the trade by pretending to stalk and nearly assassinate an unknown local while he was on the toilet. In the process of doing this Brosnan drew attention to himself that any assassin no matter how washed up, would not do.

In summary this film was truly terrible and I don't see the point of it at all. I am not sure what it was supposed to be.

Save your money and watch something else

Many faults add up to a poor filmReviewed bybo-85Vote: 3/10

This film suffers from many faults, some of these include. Poor casting, Pierce Bronson wants to shed the 007 stigma by taking criminal parts. But alas, Bronson was the wrong choice for this role. Perhaps a more competent director could have pulled a better performance from Bronson but more on this later.

Poor editing, the film could have flowed much better if the editor was more skilled. As an example, a bottle of beer drops to the floor and it smashes, the editor choose to linger on the bottle for several seconds longer than needed. I mean the dumb bottle had nothing to do at all with the story!

Poor script, the story never fully jumps into high gear. There are numerous plot points all of which are too minor to drive the story. The characters were never developed which made them appear one dimensional.

Last and most defiantly least is poor directing. Some very good acting talent is left floundering under this director.

The photography however is very good.
