JL as a vengeful villian and Dw as the person tracking him...you can't go wrong!
on June 3, 2014
Took me a long time to finally watch this movie, but after Cliffhanger, Dexter s4 and Raising Cain-all with John LIthgow as a sadistic villian, and his comedic roles, let's just say I got tired of putting it off. Denzel Washington as always does a very good job as a fallible character, even though he seems to play a cop a lot. John Lithgow plays the vengeful villian who DW captured some years ago. The case's description gives a little too much away, and JL's antics are sometimes rather ridiculous but they work. Director Russell Mulcahy of Highlander and the Shadow does a good job with a movie that's somewhat out of his genre. For John Lithgow and Denzel Washington movie fans alone, it's worth a look. As sometimes happens, this film was a 'word of mouth' recommendation, and I wasn't dissapointed.
