GUARDIAN ANGELS WATCHING OVER DENZEL,
This review is from: Out of Time (DVD)OUT OF TIME is slick, convoluted, at times implausible, but because of the sincerity and punch of Carl Franklin's direction and the good performances, it's a good and enjoyable film. It seems like there are guardian angels watching over Denzel Washington in this one! Every time it looks like he's going to get caught, something happens that gets him off the hook. Clever, if improbable. Without rehashing the plot, it is to Denzel's credit that he makes Matthias Whitlock and engaging hero. He's duped big time by his girl friend, played sexily by the lovely Sanaa Latham and her husband, Dean Cain in one of his more convincing performances. His estranged wife played with gusto by Eva Mendes gets into the scenario, and so does Denzel's drinking buddy, played by John Billingsley, who manages to steal every scene he's in.
Although slow in the beginning, once the pace picks up, we get some tense action scenes.
Not one of Denzel's best, but thanks to he and Billingsley, you'll have a good time.
