Rob and I went to see Ben and Sam duke it out on the streets of NYC tonight. I have to say that the movie was far, far better than I thought it would be and I highly recommend it to the iWalt.com-reading masses. =-) Not only do both Jackson and Affleck give (for the most part) great performances, the supporting cast all do a fabulous job as well. The plot stays interesting and touching and the characters keep you thinking about their motives and speculating on what they’ll do next.
Showtime, on the other hand, is not a good movie. It’s a buddy cop spoof that forgets it’s spoofing and becomes what it’s mocking. Then it gets confused and starts sucking. Then it sucks for about an hour and a half and then it ends.
Looking forward to: Spider-man, Episode II, and Insomnia.
