Dinner Rush Review


OK
I will say one thing about Bob Giraldi -- he knows how to capture the chaos and motion of a busy restaurant. For that reason, Dinner Rush, which is set at Giraldi's very own TriBeCa eatery, is wonderful. Pasta twirls poetically in pans, waiters and waitresses bolt toward one another like runaway trains, and the kitchen rattles with activity and the clanging of plates.

Romeo Must Die Review


Terrible
Romeo Must Die is a jetliner of a film headed straight for black ice. Namely, it subsists on ridiculous action sequences meshed together by predictable plot points and truly horrible acting. Fueled by the "Monopoly Money" pockets of Joel Silver - the guy responsible for such titles as The Matrix, the Lethal Weapon series, and Richie Rich - this movie is bad. Really bad.

It's such a damn shame when such a talent and versatile actors like Jet Li and Delroy Lindo re subjected to portray such stereotypical, mundane, pointless characters. To all those who are unaware of Jet Li, stop reading right now and run down to your local video story and ask for Once Upon a Time in China, Bodyguard from Beijing, and Hitman. You might have seen him in that techno-redubbed version of Black Mask or as the evil Chinese bad guy in Lethal Weapon 4 that had be shot and stabbed before Mel Gibson could save face and not get his ass kicked again. But Jet Li's character in Romeo Must Die reminds me of the circus clown hired to keep the kiddies smiling in the film.
