Not the role that got Daniel Craig cast as James Bond.

Derek Jacobi pulls off Bacon pretty great.

About as fourth as good as the original. Not something to be proud of, but at least it was better than Return of Jafar.

Twilight (1998)
One of the greatest actors of all time can't pull of this snoozy, lazy crime picture. He and Hackman are excellent, but nobody else really works in this and the story is so uninteresting it can't be helped.

A talented young cast carries what could have been a classic outlaw film; but the themes and pacing forces this to be a mostly forgotten film and a classic Hollywood failure. I still enjoyed it as wannabe outlaw myself.

Vaughn and Phoenix collaboration number two for the year is less successful but this dark, barely comedy, still entertains enough to see a satisfying ending.
