An average movie

Honestly, it is quite an obscure feature and I wouldn’t be otherwise really interested in a movie like this one but since I always had a weak spot for Ridley Scott’s work, I was quite eager to check it out. Indeed, it is probably the most unknown and forgotten movie directed by Scott and I'm afraid it actually does deserve its status. I mean, after many ambitious productions dealing with Fantasy, SF and even a periode piece (‘The Duellists’, ‘Alien’, ‘Blade Runner’ and ‘Legend’), Ridley Scott was making for the first time a contemporary feature and the result was rather underwhelming. I mean, the title was rather lame and the story was just too pedestrian. Still, as usual with Ridley Scott, in spite of a rather weak story, he managed thanks to his always stylish directing to make the whole thing watchable thanks to a nice mood and the flick was after all mostly entertaining, even if it was completely forgettable. To conclude, even though it was nothing really amazing and probably one of the weakest directing effort from Ridley Scott, but for what it’s worth, I still think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre of if you are interested in this director.
