#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Bob Rafelson has stated that this is the final part of an informal trilogy he started with “Five Easy Pieces” and continued with “The King Of Marvin Gardens”. In the three, Nicholson has now played son, brother and father. In this one, Nicholson is a wealthy wine dealer who has distanced himself from his wife with his philandering and from his son with his negligence. After he steals a diamond necklace with the help of a safecracker partner, Victor, things start coming apart. His wife sets out to interrupt what she thinks is another one of his weekend dalliances, but is really his trip to pawn the jewels.
Plot: A man who has failed as a father and husband commits a heist to make money for his fledging business, but things become complicated when his wife interferes.

Although Having a Magnificent Cast, It Is Just an Average Amoral Movie
In Miami, Alex Gates (Jack Nicholson) is a small trader of wines, married with Suzanne (Judy Davies). He does not have a good relationship with his wife and his stepson, Jason (Stephen Dorff). Alex has a Cuban mistress, Gabriela (Jennifer Lopez). One day, he decides to steal a jewel from a rich client, in the house where Gabriela works as a nanny. Alex associates to the tuberculous small-time crook Victor Spansky (Michael Caine). A series of mistakes jeopardize the heist and the selling of the necklace. This amoral and noir movie has a magnificent cast. However, something does not work well, being just an average movie about greed. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): “Sangue e Vinho” (“Blood and Wine”)
Badly made- and uninteresting typical genre movie.
This movie leaves a totally pointless impression. It adds noting new or original to the genre and on top of that the movie is just not a well made one.
They desperately tried to make things more interesting with its script but the movie in fact remains nothing more but a generic genre movie, that unnecessarily makes things hard on itself with its script and redundant characters.
The story also doesn’t always flow, which is due to some bad pacing and editing. At times it feels like sequences are missing and things occur too fast after each other. The story lacks proper back-story for the characters and when the movie tries to put in some emotions they work out blank and come over as artificial and forced and completely unrealistic or believable. You can also blame the director for this. I’ll bet the movie would had been way better if it didn’t took itself as serious as it did. Some more ‘fun’ wouldn’t had damaged the movie.
Because of the failed script not much works out in the movie. It’s not tense, it’s not mysterious, it’s not surprising. The action feels lame and the love-story misplaced and unrealistic. Some of the dialog is horrendous and it makes the characters at times seem like dumb Neanderthalers. A real offense to the viewer’s intelligence.
Despite the fact that the movie is filled with stars, the movie still is miscast. In all fairness, I think Jennifer Lopez is a good actress but it just doesn’t show in this movie, in which she plays a character with a thick Cuban accent, who is supposed to be the love interest of the movie of the two main characters. Stephen Dorff feels out of place since he’s only ever real good and convincing as an actor when he plays a villain, which is mostly due to his looks. Still it’s interesting to see Jack Nicholson and Michael Caine as partners in crime. Especially Nicholson makes the movie worthwhile at times and his character is perhaps the only real good and enjoyable one of the movie. Though Caine is also good at times but mostly when he acts as a different person in the movie.
A movie to forget really fast.
