Great cast, shame about the writing
SHINER is one of those movies which seems to have been rushed into production in the wake of the success of the Guy Ritchie hits LOCK, STOCK, AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS and SNATCH. It stars Michael Caine as a down-on-his-luck boxing promoter desperate for one last win, a man who finds himself on a wrong side of a number of enemies he’s ended up crossing during the course of the movie.
For a British film, the cast is second to none. Caine gives a faultless and sympathetic performance in the leading role, despite the deficits of his character. Kenneth Cranham shows up in a rather shrill role, and there’s a meaty party for a youthful, pre-fame Andy Serkis. Martin Landau is the barely-glimpsed American import, Matthew Marsden (RAMBO) plays Caine’s son, and the reliable Danny Webb (ALIEN 3) is on hand as a slimy lawyer.
The narrative is fast-paced, certainly, but also loaded with many, many plot holes. It’s one of those films that makes sense on the surface but which makes no sense if you actually stop to think about it. Characters do things just to service the plot and none of it is even remotely realistic. It’s a pity, because with better writing and direction, this could and should have been up there with the best this genre has to offer; as it stands, it’s a bit of a mess.
