Entertaining crime comedy with Pierce Brosnan in a very successful comic turn
Pierce Brosnan has sipped his last Martini and returns, in an outrageous self-parody, as the aging foul-mouthed boozy assassin Julian Noble, who has a particular fondness for teenage girls, bullfights and tacky clothes. During a job in Mexico City he meets Danny (Greg Kinnear), a straight-faced Denver suburban business-man, who’s in town to make his deal of-a-life-time, in a hotel bar. Despite their completely different personalities and Julian’s crude and insensible remarks, they become friends.
Largely carried by the performances of Pierce Brosnan and Greg Kinnear, director Richard Shepard revealed that he didn’t write the film with Pierce Brosnan in mind , but I can hardly imagine this without him. He proves to have a real talent for comedy and can be more than just James Bond or cold-war spies. The scene in which the two meet at a glossy hotel bar (stunning sets and beautifully photographed) really is a bravura piece of acting skills. The scene lasts almost fifteen minutes, and although it was probably carefully scripted, the two actors are largely improvising, but they succeed wonderfully! It almost feels like a new standard in screen acting. Think of Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel in MEAN STEETS improvising and add one of the most subtle underpinnings of many genre clichés and the actors’ own typecasting (Brosnan’s James Bond in particular), and you got one of the most delightful pairings in recent Hollywood.
Sadly, the story wears thin after a while. After an hour, the film just runs out of steam. Nevertheless, and I can’t put my finger on it exactly, I did enjoy this very much. It just feels very fresh and original, with some imaginative use of sets and lighting, and some hints to Seijun Suzuki and Jean-Pierre Melville. The other characters aren’t given much to do, but this film does offer something new, in that respect it almost effortlessly succeeds in blending all conventional genres into quite an entertaining spoof. Very amusing.
Camera Obscura — 7/10
I can’t believe the glowing reviews I’ve read about this, er, ‘film’. People saying it’s the best comedy crime buddy movie they’ve ever seen? Never seen ‘Get Shorty’? ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang’? Sorry – both are probably way too sophisticated and, yes, FUNNY for the likes of these people. Even the trailer for ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ was better than this tired, dragged-out, clichéd, third-rate waste of celluloid. Pierce Brosnan did his best with a film school undergrad script, and was mildly amusing for a while. But the joke was soon over. Okay, I know it was supposed to be a ‘comedy’ – but was there even ONE believable character here? The script had some good one-liners, but the narrative was about as dynamic as a stuffed duck. And that awful, awful scene when the Pierce Brosnan character turns up unannounced at Greg Kinnear’s at Christmas. I can’t even be bothered to write about it any more. Avoid.
