Bu A (de) wrote: One of the best movies written in these times, 2004. This is like discovering Van Gogh before he dies. This is a masterful creation, except for the performance of Sam Neill, who apparently doesn't have rhythm. This movie is a study of the human condition, 2004, written in prose. Let's see, the only other time that's put in a movie, is just about every musical. Right, a musical is prose put to music. The lines are crafted with care for both the meaning and the patter created by the arrangement. Acting is robust and convincing, (even Neill) with Joan Allen and Simon Abkarian connecting with each other on several levels. Camera-work is an entire film school study in perfection. Shirley Henderson plays the three hags to perfection. She has an eye for art when she picks a part that suits her. What makes this movie so hard to watch is that there is so little time to appreciate the beauty of the words as they fly by. Perhaps that is why we read Shakespeare more than we watch him performed.

He might not even have takenTV Media in high school. But... he started writing, directing andacting--and he still changed the genre. With "Reservoir Dogs," he wasestablished. With "Pulp Fiction," he was God.Hollywood is like high school. When one does something that really getspopular, it sparks... the trend. And all the others follow suit--following the leader like cult lemmings. And in film, influence can beessential. Or just sad and embarrassing. Tarantino inspired many--a lotof particular imitators. Some good. And... as for this one? "SUICIDE KINGS" dares to spin a yarn of a quartet of wealthy privilegedyoungsters who dream up... and then try the most desperate and daringof schemes--they abduct an ex-Wiseguy. The reformed mobster is on his way home one night after an invigoratingevening out. There's an ambush, he's attacked. He comes to... only tofind himself bound-and-gagged in a chair somewhere. What the hell'sgoing on?A hostage film. A mob-crime flick. And also eventually... kind ofmystery "whodunnit?" thriller, the plot twists and turns--especially inthe last quarter of the picture. Just a bunch of boys having fun. Bein' boys--not unlike "ReservoirDogs", "Pulp Fiction" and "Django Unchained.""The Godfather in question" finds in a cabin somewhere surrounded byrich collegiate in nice suits who seem to fancy themselves their ownindependent Mafioso. He sees red--on someone's shirt, as it's coveredin the Goodfella's blood. The whole plan goes as wrong as we'd expectand the spoiler Richie's panic--and then these dumb rich silver spoonsall turn on each other. There's a bit where they cut off the mobster's finger (remember thecop's ear in "Reservoir Dogs"?) The mob is infamous for this. There's amoment where two henchman talks about his shoes--White Nikes, BrunoMackie's and Stingray Boots, (the discussion of Big Macs and McDonald'sin Holland vs. America), these kidnappers are all in fine suits(Tarantino's henchman always were too).The standard big-heist/kidnapping/robbery/caper genre picture has beena staple of cinema since before movies could speak. And in the '30's,the genre reached its zenith. "SUICIDE KINGS" boasts one of those casts that we'd expect from thelatest Tarantino picture. Christopher Walken, Laura Harris, JeremySisto, Brad Garrett, Jay Mohr, Johnny Galecki, Sean Patrick Flanery,Henry Thomas, Laura San Giacomo and Dennis Leary.OK, not quite the highest-of-profile names for the most part. Butstill, everyone does a worthwhile job. Only Walken, Leary and Galeckionly really stand-out. Christopher Walken confirms the belief that any scene he's in--justflat-out works. Even when the screenplay gives him the most ludicrousinsights: "But I come from out there, and everybody out there knows,everybody lies: cops lie, newspapers lie, parent's lying'. The onething you can count on - word on the street... yeah, that's solid."Uh-huh. That's why so many schoolyard and water-cooler rumors areconsidered holy fact.Denis Leary has the most fun in his role doing what I suppose can bestbe described as "the quintessential Denis Leary role." He's "DenisLeary in the mob." Ranting about his wife and his expensive footwear.Doing a good deed and then bring down his usual Biblical wrath. Galecki is kind of fun as the rich worrywart nebbish whose family ownsthe place and seems a lot more concerned with mud being tracked on thefloor, what happening to his father's favorite chair than the fact thata mobster is bound and he know everyone's nameAll the other actors--they get a passing grade, but they don't quitestand out. And at times, "SUICIDE KINGS" is like that--hit-and-miss. The whole abduction is so badly planned out--the movie itself eventakes notice of this. Throughout the movie, Walken's character repeatedsays to his captors: "You guys didn't think this through too good, didyou?" Anyone with a handful of working brain cells will be thinking thesame thing. I kind of wanted to ask the filmmakers this. The amount ofobvious mistakes these guys make. Oh, they're clearly notprofessionals.These guys kidnap a man with mob connections. They let him know whothey are. They introduce themselves to him at the beginning. Really getto know each other. Of course they have to get to know each other, taketheir walls down and open up... it's integrate to films like these formale bonding--or rather, character development.You'd think they would have blindfolded him, or be masked themselves.They drop their names. Surely they don't honestly believe they're goingto get away with this. And then, is there really a possibility that...how Walken attempts to get out of this... or they do. Even in a god-dammed movie, it all feels unbelievably ....The movie's screenwriters Josh McKinney, Gina Goldman and Wayne AllenRice take Don Stanford's original short story "The Hostage" from andheavily "Quentin Tarantino-ize it." Some thought they paid homage realproper. Some thought all this seems like something at best he mighthave in the bottom of his drawer--and forgot about forever. The scribes here don't seem to have quite that golden ear. Though It's not quite tin....Director Peter O' Fallon has real flair and style. He certainly filmsthis thing with a lot of energy to spare. The kind we've seen bestin... well, you know where.Heist/kidnapping movies that deal with "inside jobs" just gotta havethat moment where the ship's going down in flame and the rats all turnon each other.There's even the plot development where they all turn on each other,trying to find out who the traitor is, the mole feeding the cops theinfo is--remember the last act of "Reservoir Dogs"? Where all of thecriminals go nuts, pull out their guns and..."SUICIDE KINGS" is nice, fun and disposable. The most memorable thingabout it is Walken taped down in a chair. And that's only of the bestways to get Waken.The filmmakers know that. In the end, most of it is forgettable. Kind of fun (especially thecomic stuff), but no, really nothing especially special. No must-seeclassic. Well, what do you expect from a designer impostor Tarantino?I agree--a little too much (and I mean from beginning to end) isrecycled from Tarantino. Except I don't think Q.T. himself everrotoscoped. And Tarantino himself admits to being a big-time movie imitator--one ofthe very best there ever was. But when he plagiarizes, he knows damnwell how to make it feel fresh. He steals from the best of the oldschool. But he has that golden ear, that Beethoven savant. " SUICIDE KINGS" is still worth a look for a slow night. Better than alot of the merde being crapped out of Hollywood's big uncreative anus."Suicide Kings" doesn't beat the house and take the pot, but likepoker, it's not a bad way to spend a slow night with your friends. Oh come on, people. It's obvious why they're trying to make designer-impostor Quentin Tarantino. Hollywood is like high school. Show themsomething most'll get into and watch the trend spark. Before you knowAudiences are just like that--more of the same until they get reallysick of it. Couldn't the real criminals here--the culpablescreenwriters Josh McKinney, Gina Goldman and Wayne Allan Rice havemaybe given this just one more re-write? Or honestly, maybe a few.Should've gotten an expert team of script doctors. Quentin got hispersonal style by stealing from a lot of different sources. The mistakehere--they're just taking directly from Quentin. But director O' Fallon gives a lot of wild-child style and so doeseveryone else involved.I have to say... it is fun. It is a lot a fun. But it is kind ofdisposable. Better than the average throwaway movie you watch to fillor kill the time on a slow Tuesday night for a buck from Redbox. The picture does have a nice mood and atmosphere--Designer ImposterTarantino or not.And in the end... Well... Yeah, it's true. This is all prettyunbelievable. The ending however, is inevitable. And makes all thesense in the world.It's funny how this movie bombed when it first came out. Maybe cause1997 was the year of "Titanic," "L.A. Confidential," "Good WillHunting" and "The Ice Storm." And a real Tarantino film--"JackieBrown."From "Reservoir Dogs" to "Pulp Fiction." Hey, if the writers anddirector had waited a little later, they could have pilfered a littlefrom Quentin's "Jackie Brown" which came out later that year aroundChristmas. It is a real Hell of a wild ride, Tarantino-esque or not.Like Doug Liman's "Go."See, for me--The Suicide Kings seems more like Jon Favreau's "Swingers"than the Reservoir Dogs. Hey, maybe that was another source ofinspiration!Walken sees how nervous they all are (who wouldn't be?) and attempts toget them to turn on each other. Seeing as it's a typical hostagesituation with the victim being tied to a chair--he tries the usual ofdivide-and-conquer. "There's an inside guy. A mole," he tells them."But who?" When they do finally start playing poker, Walken reads themeasily.You might have to see it more than once to really get it all straight.Take notes, if you have to. Not to give anything away at all, but justto close it all on this one poetic line: "Sometimes the ends really dojustify the means. Or at least define the meaning of the words 'karma'and 'justice'."--Having Really Enjoyed It, Dane Youssef

The most disturbing bit in this happens where the pretty girl's arm gets caught by the giant Venus fly trap, which then oozes digestive fluid. One good thing about this film is no one will ask you to shut up if you talk while it's playing.
