(mx) wrote: Danny Provenzano brings crime dramas down low with This Thing of Ours.While the concept is fitting for a mob story, in which this film is told, the execution is poor. For 95 minutes of screen time, the plot details lack depth and the characters constantly deliver lines of dialogue, meant to be witty, but come across as cheesy. Ultimately, this picture is as bland as its production value.The constant cursing is for a mature audience, as is the violence, which is backed by cheap sound and blood effects. Ultimately, there is more than enough profanity, but not enough bloodshed.There are some familiar faces in the crowd, although the question is why. Frank Vincent is okay. James Caan is an absolute waste. Louis Vanaria, Christian Maelen, and Danny Provenzano take the leads in unsatisfactory fashion.This Thing of Ours has very little to showcase and is therefore a film to be clipped.

(jp) wrote: The filmmakers must have thought that naming this concoction "Basic" was the ultimate goof on its unsuspecting audience. As you may know, this mess is anything but basic. Things start out promisingly enough, with two terrific lead actors and a premise full or promise and possibilities, but you'll be ready to wave the white flag by the halfway mark.By that time, the story has become such a convoluted mess that it becomes a parody of itself. I was enjoying being confused and misled for a while, but there comes a time when the screenwriter has to actually make sense of all of the red herrings and misdirection. That never happens here.The varying tales told by the soldiers on what happened in the jungles of Panama are bewildering enough, but writer James Vanderbilt isn't content with stopping there. He insists on piling twist on top of twist to the point where it becomes laughable. Witness the fight between Connie Nielsen and John Travolta that passes as foreplay, or John McTiernan's ridiculous close-up of Travolta's eyes in a key scene. Every time a new twist is introduced (and believe me, you'll lose count), you pretty much have to replay the entire movie back in your head, but McTiernan and Vanderbilt makes that impossible to do just because they know there's no glue holding any of it together. By the time you get to the final slap in the face reveal, you're left as befuddled as Nielsen's poor character. It proves the entire film to be a waste of time because apparently everything that happens in it is a ruse. And that makes the time spent watching "Basic" a complete and utter waste. It has no respect for its audience.
