High Crimes (2002) Conspiracies abound in "High Crimes."  Unfortunately, the film is much less convincing than some of the other films of the same style.  I found "Conspiracy Theory" to be much more entertaining.  "The General's Daughter" and "G.I. Jane" are also military conspiracies that hold more enjoyment than "High Crimes." The film stars Ashley Judd and Jim Caviezel as a Claire and Tom Kubik, a husband and wife who seem to live an ordinary life.  Little does Claire know, but her husband is an ex-Marine that is wanted by the government.  When their house is broken into the law officials get Tom's fingerprints and match them with Lt. Ron Chapman, wanted for a 12 year-old murder. According to the military Tom, or Ron is wanted for the murder of nine innocent people in a village in El Salvador in 1988.  His wife is a ...

State of Play (2009) "State of Play" is based on the BBC miniseries of the same name.  It isn't the first time that the US has adapted British television in US entertainment.  The film gets raving reviews, but as far as the typical audience is concerned, the film is just above average.  If I had to guess why, I would have to say it is that "State of Play" feels much like a reworked "Pelican Brief."  The plot is very similar, all hinging on a political conspiracy theory. The film stars Russell Crowe as Cal McAffrey, a seasoned reporter for the Washington Globe in the nation's capital.  As the film opens we witness one and one half murders.  It is apparent right from the get go that it is going to be a conspiracy film.  Cal is in the thick of it, trying to dig ...

Duplicity (2009) "Duplicity" is an original twist on a standard caper plot.  When the trailer first began airing I was dying to see the film.  It was edited nicely, drawing in the audience, with an entertaining relationship between the two lead characters.  Then, the film dropped off the face of the earth.  I never caught the release in theaters, it seemed to come and go in no time flat.  That is unfortunate because this film is one the best I have seen in a long while. The film stars Julia Roberts and Clive Owen in a caper that keeps you on your toes from beginning to end.  It takes quite a while into the film to figure out what the characters are trying to accomplish and all is not reveal until the final moments of the film.  It is much akin to "The ...

Watchmen (Director's Cut) (2009) "Watchmen" was one of the most anticipated motion comic adaptations.  It did not fair that well in theaters, probably due to the marketing campaign.  It was unclear what the movie actually was.  The trailers and promotions made the film sound as if it were a superhero film like "Batman" and "Superman."  In reality, "Watchmen" is a graphic novel that focuses on the plight of humanity more than heroism. "Watchmen" is little bit more than just another "Sin City," although they do have a lot of the same characteristics.  The narration by Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) is very much akin to Mickey Rourke, with the dark and ominous presence.  The film has its moments of graphic violence but not nearly anything like "Sin City."  In addition, "Sin City" jumped around like a true graphic novel whereas "Watchmen" is linear with a few ...

Cell 2, The (2009) There seem to be a lot of horror/thriller film remakes and direct-to-video sequels coming out lately.  Who would have ever thought of "The Cell 2?"  The original film was hardly memorable or inspiring, so I'm not sure how a sequel came about.  It would seem that if the film isn't good enough to be made into a feature, then what's the point.  Nevertheless, some filmmakers out there came up with and brought to the small screen, "The Cell 2." The only thing I remember from the first film is Jennifer Lopez, a red suit and some weird science fiction mind experiments.  The sequel is the same thing, but without the glamour.  It feels like a cross between "The Cell" and "The Thirteenth Floor."  Maya (Tessie Santiago) occasionally works for the FBI.  She has devoted her energies to tracking down a serial ...
