Decent Homage to ’50s/’60s Kind Of Film
Thanks to a lot of negative reviews, my hopes on enjoying this movie were pretty slim…..so I wound up pleasantly surprised that the film was, at very least, entertaining. Yeah, it was not hard to guess the “twist” near the end, but it was an enjoyable, mellow ride.
This movie reminded me of old films, ’50s and ’60s-type spy films in which there is little action but the characters are interesting enough to make you pay attention and see if you can guess who’s who and what’s what. Kind or like the 1963 hit “Charade,” except this movie is much more low key. Cary Grant would have been ideal in Johnny Depp’s role.
Despite mostly dialog-driven, Angelina Jolie and Depp have star-power faces that will have you involved as does the great European scenery and photography, which is first rate on a Blu-Ray.
All in all: a pretty good subtle film and worth a rental.
A Robin Hood sleeps in all our hearts
Don’t expect a deep moral, ethical, political or religious meaning in this film. It is not an author’s film , as they say in Paris. It is first of all a remake of the eternal Arsène Lupin or Rouletabille to remain French, or simpler Robin Hood to turn English, or William Wallace to lean towards Scotland. And definitely I am fascinated by these thieves who steal the money of the very rich for their own sake, with a few crumbs to the poorest. And here the very rich are Russian, making fortunes in casinos and brothels, so it is just right to steal billions of decent currencies from them, though it is bad to forget paying one’s income tax to the British Treasury.
The film is simple but effective. We kind of know from the very start who Alexander Pierce may be, but that’s not important at all because what is essential is how that thief who nicely put several billions of some good currencies in his pocket directly from the coffers of a Russian Mafioso, will evade the police and escape from the real Russian gangsters.
There is no depth in all that but there is a lot of fun and action. It is also so realistically critical of the world’s polices that it turns funny somewhere. The English police are only interested in recuperating the income tax that was not paid. The French police are whipping other cats, as they say in French, and looking the other way. The Italian police are only attracted by the profit they can make out of selling their prisoners to the highest bidder. Only Interpol, or a couple of Interpol agents are honest, though some might already be too high a count. Only one in fact and as long as the game is funny and paid for by his authorities.
The most difficult part is to convince the girlfriend that she is just doing what she has to do, according to the letters he has delivered to her regularly when there is a bend or turn along the way. Ha has spent one million dollars having his own face restructured somewhere in Brazil, or Latin America, and she does not know what he looks like any more. She is an Interpol agent and he can count on her being able to resist anything including violence and her being very creative in her actions. And she does not disappoint us, and probably not our Alexander Pierce.
While she is going from one station to the next according to his instructions, he is getting close to her and observing her and getting the protection she can get from Interpol who are protecting and following her, just like a pack of dogs would follow the smell of a fox. In fact the scent is that of a vixen in this case since Interpol, or the Russian gangster do not know the scent of the fox since he has spent a fortune to change his physical parameters.
And everyone will be happy. The Russian Mafiosi will be all dead, as dead as a bunch of door nails, though not enough nails to nail down their coffins. The British cops will recuperate the 744 million pounds of overdue tax money they wanted to get out of the business. The beautiful Elise will be reunited to her mysterious Alexander Pierce. Alexander Pierce will be able to sail away with no one on his tracks any more.
That’s a pure action film done in the best immoral tradition of the morality one can find in robbing the rich. It is their fault any way. They would not be robbed if they were not rich. Let them give everything away and follow Jesus on his way to Capharnaüm or Jerusalem. Unluckily today’s rich people are not like the tax collector Matthew. They don’t believe in giving their money away and they prefer losing their lives rather than not retaliating against some one who borrowed a few billions from their coffers with the intention of not bringing them back. There is a Zorro in the heart of every good citizen.
