It’s hard to figure out how Clive Owen got billing above Paul Giamatti in “Shoot Em Up”. The trailer made it pretty clear to me that Paul is the main character and Clive just happens to be along because ever bad guy needs a good guy to toe up to. I think this is really going to be the vehicle that puts that little guy in orbit. “Sideways” could have been a fluke. You have to get another good one under your belt before you can really be a star.
That unmemorable thing with Tom Cruise, Robert Redford, and what’s her name is just not going to go well. What the heck is that trailer about. It comes off like its talking about the on-going war in Iraq, but not quite. Tom as a senator looks like an actor playing a senator. Harrison as a senator or a cop sure. If he wants clean cut he needed to stick to lawyers.
Rush Hour 3 sucked. Plot holes _I_ actually saw and could not forgive. And, was that a McGuffin? Easily the best parts were the trademark outtakes during the credits.
