Before i was going to see this movie i had high expectations for this movie, sky high actually. Why you ask? well, because of this; Johnny Depp + Christian Bale + Marion Cotillard + Michael Mann. And it would be very intersting if the camera angle Michale Mann uses are any good in this movie.
To start with the good things. The actors did their job. The Chemistry was not that bad, Depp and Cotillard played too unserious couple - but that's the movie itself, and not the actors, mistake. Christian Bale does one of his best jobs though, except (for me) "Batman Begins", "The Dark Knight" and "The Machinist" The action scenes was also not too bad. I got a really good feeling in maybe the first 20 minutes, but after that, the movie got boring and more boring, until it got uninteresting.
The film was very up and down. bits and peaces you can say. Well except the first 20 minutes that were pretty good. After the 20 minutes, it was on five minutes, off five minutes, on five minutes and so forth. Not only was it on and off, but the shooting scene was so loud, it almost was too loud. I got a realistic picture of this, but should Mann blow my ear off because he want it loud? I don't think so. The camera angle Mann uses wasn't so clearly when the film was at it's best, but when it got boring, this angle actually was kind of a problem.
In the end, i would say it still maybe is a cool film for some people, but for me this was a disappointment! I though this could be pretty cool blockbuster, but it ended up to be a total OK film... My suggestion? See "Collateral" (Michael Mann)!
