Desert Saints Review


Good
Passable little flick has Sutherland as La Femme Kiefer, a mysterious hitman who picks up a drifter girl (Melora Walters), a pathetic loser who turns out to be anything but. Against any semblance of good judgment, he takes her on as a partner... only to have her turn out to be an FBI agent on his case. Or is she??? It's a capable thriller but hardly a standout -- there's basically only one more plot twist and it's not all that unexpected. Walters is getting too old to play the hottie vixen... and come to think of it, so is Sutherland.

Beautiful Review


Very Good
Few things simultaneously sicken and seduce the feminist spirit in quite as thorough a way as an American beauty pageant. Now an inextricable fixture on our cultural landscape, the pageant defines, glorifies, and objectifies Woman as a prescription for all time. An evening spent watching the Miss America proceedings on TV is like a psychosexual time warp, dragging us back to a kinder, simpler time when the female of the species need not worry itself over difficult issues like voting or wearing shoes. So it was not without a sense of irony that I walked down the cinema for a screening Sally Field's Beautiful.

Irony is the central force of Field's representative pageantry, and in the tradition of Drop Dead Gorgeous, it is no disappointment. But this is also a human story, about women in search of identity and belonging.

An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn Review


Terrible
How bad is An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn? Every bit as awful as you might have heard. This wannabe mockumentary tries to send up Hollywood in a tale that has director Alan Smithee (Eric Idle) hijacking his own film and destroying it because it's so bad, because he can't use the pseudonym Alan Smithee because (duh!) that's his real name! Har har! Joe Eszterhas is responsible (of course) for this mess, which is so unfunny the only laughs are during the outtakes that run during the credits. And that's the actors laughing, not the audience. Widely panned as one of the worst movies ever made, life imitated art when director Arthur Hiller took his name off this train wreck and used... of course... Alan Smithee.

The Hunted Review


Weak
Director William Friedkin has a great track record for examining his characters' inner turmoil as they battle the forces of good and evil. Friedkin is best known for pitting a mother, a detective, and a priest against the devil inside the little body of Linda Blair in The Exorcist. But some of Friedkin's best work can be seen in the action thriller The French Connection, where he transcends the raw power of the action film genre into something highly sophisticated and thought provoking. Thematically, The Hunted is comparable to Connection. However, those expecting Friedkin to deliver another quality action picture like Connection will be sorely disappointed.

The film opens during the war in Kosovo as highly trained hand-to-hand combat assassin (or "tracker") Aaron Hallam (Benicio Del Toro) carries out his military assignment to murder a high-ranking official. He receives a silver star for his valor, but he is scarred and haunted by the widespread images of genocide. Like Rambo, his adjustment to civilian life is difficult as he finds himself unable to turn off his instinctual killing machine. He ends up hunting the forest outside Portland, Oregon looking for and killing in cold blood anyone betraying the credo of PETA.

The General's Daughter Review


Bad

Only three or four minutes after the lights go down, any credibility "The General's Daughter" might have as a serious drama goes right out the window with the introduction of the title character.

At a retirement party for The General (James Cromwell), a military banquet hall is filled with brass honoring their commander. The camera searches row after row of stern-looking, spit-and-polish men before moving into a close-up of his daughter (Leslie Stefanson), a hot babe of the underwear model variety, smiling a centerfold smile and, except for her uniform, looking for all intents and purposes like she should be jumping out of a cake.

Forgoing the opportunity for a relatively realistic female officer portrayal like Demi Moore in "A Few Good Men," "The General's Daughter" asks us to believe that this porcelain blonde, who looks like she'd cry if she broke a nail, is not only an army captain but a doctor -- a shrink who instructs soldiers in the psychological warfare, no less.

Beautiful Review


Terrible

"Beautiful" is such a sappy, pandering, overly sincere, paint-by-numbers feel-good movie it's almost a surprise Robin Williams doesn't play its central character, an absurdly determined wannabe beauty queen.

OK, so Robin Williams is far too hairy to pass as a beauty contestant and he isn't even female. But that's never stopped him before.

Instead it's Minnie Driver who swallows her pride for the role of this repellantly shallow and insecure outcast from a broken white-trash home, who takes 15 years to learn a trite Sunday school lesson about how there are more important things in life than being pretty.

The Hunted Review


Bad

If I had only one sentence to explain how badly director William Friedkin has bungled "The Hunted," it would be this: 15-year-old Frankie Muniz, starring in this week's "Agent Cody Banks," is a more convincing covert operative as a kiddie spy than Benicio Del Toro is as the Special Forces assassin gone rogue in this movie.

In the unrelentingly violent Kosovo-war prologue -- which is supposed to establish why Del Toro went bonkers and can now be spotted filleting unsuspecting hunters like some vigilante vegan in the woods outside Portland, Oregon -- the star acts nothing like the stealthy, highly-trained, surgical-strike assassin he's supposed to be. In fact, he looks more like a clumsy little kid playing hide and seek (which is hardly suprising since he admits not training for the role).

It's almost laughable that he makes it all the way across an erupting urban battlefield and into a heavily guarded and fortified mosque to graphically slice-and-dice a cruel Serbian commander.
