Kenneth L (ca) wrote: Jon Avnet's deeply flawed Red Corner is nonetheless a terrific Hitchcockian style thriller and a gripping courtroom drama all rolled into one. With strong impassioned performances, exotic scenic elements and an urgent message on the heels of the brutal Tiananmen Massacre, it is hard to argue against the earnestness by which Avnet and Gere approach the material. And while there may be attempts at 'balance', there's no question the film is anti-Chinese in its sentiment, not least because of its conspicuous lack of subtlety and self reflexive irony. Gere plays an American TV executive working for a media conglomerate who finds himself in deep trouble when he picks up a Chinese woman (Jessey Meng) at an event only to wake up with the police swarming his hotel room. The woman has been murdered, he has blood all over his clothes and can't seem to remember anything beyond their night of sex and booze. Thereafter, the film takes us through a labyrinthian crash course of the Chinese (in)judicial system which includes, assault, intimidation, corrupt officials and greed - all symptoms of a system shrouded in secrecy.The premise isn't a new one and Red Corner, though performed and executed with utter conviction, is alas so hard handed and assured in its western didacticism that the contrivances structured to bring forward its human rights agenda also float to the fore, undercutting its own credibility at every turn with sheer Hollywood machinations. After Gere's shockingly inhuman treatment while in detention, he is then allowed free reign around Beijing to recreate the evening of the crime, even ending up in his attorney's private residence. The story takes a more incredulous turn when caught in a traffic jam, an attempt is made on Gere's life which triggers a ludicrous chase sequence around Beijing and finally to the safety of the American embassy. Even more prepostrous is, after a teary reunion with his attorney in which he realizes the sacrifices she's made on his behalf, he voluntarily leaves the sanctuary of the consulate and surrenders himself to the Chinese judicial system. All of which, of course, takes place to the accompaniment of a swelling score, enough to distract from the implausibility of the situation, or for that matter, the irony that Gere's character in fact places his life willfully into the hands of his attractive female attorney, and by default, the Chinese judicial system. So it comes as no surprise that when Shen (Bai Ling) professes regret that she never used to question authority, the glaring irony that the director seems to advocate a similar passive acceptance of the diegesis of his film's manipulations, gaping loopholes or petty contrivances are hard to ignore.

Stuart M (ca) wrote: SPOILERS AHEADAbout the most pointless film I've ever seen. After a slow start that seems to be competing with 2001 for showing all of space bureaucracy, though not nearly as effectively or to any purpose, the plot finally kicks in about halfway through the film. There's another planet directly opposite ours that always stays on the opposite side of the sun. A crew is sent to explore it and promptly crashes only to find out they're mysteriously back on Earth. Gosh, I wonder where they could actually be. Could it possibly be an identical but opposite Earth?Admittedly this was made even more obvious since it was the plot of a Red Dwarf episode. It's a sad sad day when a TV comedy as silly as Red Dwarf can follow an idea through to its inevitable conclusion better than you can. Here the "differences" are idiotically simplistic and meaningless, like the fact that people are left-handed and write backwards. Hey, just like a mirror, get it? A mirror world? Isn't that clever! At least Red Dwarf added some interesting differences, like the fact that time was passing backwards. Worse yet we're expected to take this concept seriously here when five seconds' thought would show how dumb it is. And this mystery is the main conflict for the last forty minutes.And then everybody dies. No, I'm not even kidding about that. With no idea where to go once their boring revelation has been made they decide to simply kill off all the characters in an (admittedly pretty cool) explosion, except for one man who's shown years later in a retirement home recounting this story to a nurse. Note that this is the first time we have even a hint that this film is being told in flashback. Pathos? Mystery? Bah! And in a crowning moment of lameness that brings our film to its long overdue end, the old man sees his reflection in a mirror and charges at it in his wheelchair smashing into it and killing himself. Because it's a mirror world! Get it? Pretty clever, huh?I've never seen a film try so hard to be intelligent and thought-provoking without even having one single creative idea. This film is a waste of celluloid. Not even bad enough to be charmingly awful, except in the final minutes. Avoid.

It's the characters that kill it for me. They're all so one dimensional and shallow that I find myself rooting for the ghosts
