Now a cast list doesn't get much worse than that. With a few bright points (Whaley, Walsh), there's nary a talented bone up there. But surprise, this isn't such a bad movie. Oh, the plot is asinine -- in the middle of Texas, a bunch of travelers converge for a little mayhem, right next door to a government time machine. Lots of explosions, and Whirry has almost no lines. Whew!
Model goes bad, kills herself on drugs and the diseases that come with them. If you can muster some pity for poor Gia Carangi, a 1970s supermodel who died of AIDS at age 26, you'll enjoy Gia. Mainly, it's because of Jolie and her prodigious acting talents, even though she does come across as a bit cold. Overall, this is fine made-for-cable filmmaking, though it's hardly world-class.
