Face (1997) Movie Review

Tepid and only partially comprehensible, Robert Carlisle's British bankrobbers-gone-awry flick is disappointing on so many levels, but largely the fault lies with the script's pro-Socialist commentary that inserts chatty monologues into every scene. Snooze. Not surprising, considering Antonia Bird's work has been headed steadily downhill since 1994's Priest. (Of course, how will we ever forget the tagline, "The blag to kill for. Only one of them meant it for real.")
