The Mexican

Title: The Mexican
Directed by: Gore Verbinski
Written by: J.H. Wyman
Year: 2001

It is truly amazing that this film has such renowned actors as Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts in it, because it feels like a B film in every other way. The story about a man travelling to Mexico to retrieve a priceless revolver called The Mexican is confusing, a bit shaky, but works if one is prepared to overlook certain things. The acting is not bad, but the characters are not very interesting, which means that the overall impression is not very positive anyway.

On the positive side, I like the basic story and some of the directing, but it fails to bring the film to any level of adequacy. Sad to say, there are simply many, many, films out there much more worthy of my time. It should be noted that I watched this film on television, which meant that instead of spending 123 minutes, I ended up spending closer to three hours due to advertisement breaks. This was extremely annoying and reminded me why I normally never watch television. Two snails to The Mexican.
