Movie Review by Martin
December 13th, 2009

I really wasn't feeling it with "The Soloist" a flick that pretty much bored me from beginning to end even though it has so much going for it.

The Reason I watched it is because stars Robert Downey Jnr and Jamie Foxx are two very good actors, but the plot, in Which Downey Jnr plays a reporter who befriends and trys to help a talented, homeless musician, just didn't do anything for me. Apart from exploring Foxx's characters background and mental illness a bit, nothing really happens until the end of this and although he is good in the part, the character Foxx is playing can sometimes just come of as irritating, rabbiting on and not letting the promising (and charismatic as usual) Downey Jnr get a word in edgeways.

In short, a boring movie this, which had an understandable limited release here in Britain.
