(ag) wrote: viewed on 6/11/04 (Sat)The last years of Napoleon's life were spent on this deserted island. He lived in this big house but the whole island was really his prison.The movie suggests that Napoleon did not really die on the island but he escaped the island with no less a brilliant plan as well calculated as his strategies at war. The movie tells the story straight until like the last fifteen minutes when that suggestion really becomes possible, explained with a series of flashbacks, much like THE SIXTH SENSE. Do I like the movie? Ok lah, quite forgettable if you have to ask me. It is more like a historical thriller. I expected some serious history lessons instead. Worth catching? Surely. It is a good exercise of mystery, thriller, breathtaking sceneries and great performances. Two of the actors alternate their speaking languages between French and English ever so effortlessly.

If you liked the original DR. PHIBES, this one tries hard to give you more of the same---campy black comedy mixed with bizarre characters, sets and (now gorier) murders---except this time there's no logic or sense in the script whatsoever.

(br) wrote: A day in the life of Los Angeles, even if it dramatizes the real brute of it. Shot on location on L.A. streets frequented by gangs, the film aims low but hits its marks where they count. This is led by great performances from Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke, both of whom push their characters out of their woodworks. The film's no doubt a gritty cop drama, but no other one seems to pit the frenemies handle to its worst potential. It's not a tale that's meant to serve as moral warning, but its point is too far from the typical dark Los Angeles story.
