An average movie

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. According to IMDb, it is apparently Tony Scott’s 3rd best movie only behind ‘True Romance’ and ‘Man on Fire’ and I have to admit that it is indeed a really entertaining movie. Indeed, Tony Scott has always been a solid action flick director and he delivered here one of his most effective features. What was also pretty neat with this movie is that it was actually pretty realistic and even prophetic, considering the Edward Snowden scandal that occurred only a few years ago. Furthermore, there was some neat tributes to obviously ‘The Conversation’ but, on top of that, with Will Smith playing this ordinary guy involved in some convoluted conspiracy, they gave also a more subtle reference to Alfred Hitchcock’s work. Unfortunately, Tony Scott apparently couldn’t help it and the guy still had to dumb the whole thing down. For example, the opening scene was rather ridiculous. Indeed, why on Earth should be Jon Voight’s character present on this crime scene? It didn’t make any sense. And, of course, even though this movie should have ended with something really dark, cynical and rather depressing, they forced the most ludicrous happy-ending you can imagine. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, I have to admit that I really have a weak spot for the damned thing and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
