Movie Review by Movie Addict
November 3rd, 2007

I'm still wondering how we got into this mess.

Too bad Tony Gilroy (Bourne trilogy) wasn't available to do the screenplay for this adaptation of a Robert Ludlum novel, as he seems to have a way to translate Ludlum's page-turning style to the screen. This was Sam Peckinpah's (The Wild Bunch, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia ) last film, and it deserved a better script.

We did get a very good performance out of Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner, Sin City), and John Hurt (Alien, Midnight Express, The Elephant Man) is always good. I always enjoy the multi-talented Dennis Hopper (Hoosiers, Easy Rider), and Burt Lancaster (Elmer Gantry, From Here to Eternity, Atlantic City) was perfect in a reprise of his Gen. James Mattoon Scott role (Seven Days in May).

Meg Foster, Helen Shaver, and Cassie Yates kept us interested when things slowed down.

For great Peckinpah, check out Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid.
