Criminal Reviews:

One question that everytime pop in my mind whenever Hollywood tries to makeover a foreign movie that was successful is: Why? In most cases, the end effect is disastrous; it never compares with the original film and why spend cash in something that has already been done, better.The film in question here is the Argentine surprise movie of last year, "9 Queens". In it, Fabian Belinsky, its director, was able to give us an original story, a caper, that was well executed and brilliantly acted; it was a pleasure to watch.Not to place this film down, but it suffers in comparison. Gregory Jacobs, the director, has adapted the storyline to show day Los Angeles and the storyline hasn't changed at all. The memory of the another film was still vivid in our minds, so there was no surprise with this one.The acting is nice in general. John C. Reilly makes the con boy Richard Gaddis perfectly slimy. Diego Luna brings a great balance to his role, and Maggie Gillenhaal is perfect as the long suffering sister.If you haven't seen the original, this ver works fine.


"Criminal" is an adequate Americanization of one of my favourite movies of 2002, the delightfully twisty "Nine Queens (Nueve Reinas)." Adapter/debut director Gregory Jacobs doesn't quite create up for the additional tension that Argentina's financial chaos added as an urgent back drop. Some of the twists are too smoothly straightened out by focusing more on the older con man, here played by John C. Reilly, and his sister, played by Maggie Gyllenhaal without the original's sensuality, despite her weak slash blouse. Diego Luna is a mite young, but he's cast to turn Reilly's hero into more of a manipulative mentor and less an apparent partner.On its own, without comparison to the original, it's an amusing and workmanlike modernize of "The Sting" crossed with "The Grifters."


Lovers of the grifter category - you will love this one most of all. It earns a 9 out of 10 from yours truly. Sincerely. Sure, I'm biased for the genre.But this one has the style of a weak budget 'Sting' with a storyline line on par with Steve Martin's 'The Spanish Prisoner'. Grifter films rely on competent, likable con boys and women, gullible marks and a logical plot. The audience can be(come) the mark, as can the cons themselves. That's why this category yanks me in … and why it entertains so well. I am (you are) the detective. Figure out what's going on before they say you: That's the ame. I'm a cynic by nature and I'm everytime equal to the task.Now this one - I couldn't figure it all out before they revealed it. What they reveal is worth the wait and meandering through the story. I doubt you'll piece it all together either. Therein lies how it earned its 9.The plot works. Oh . . . and "Cut to the chase' will never be the same after you see how "Criminal" cuts to it. It's brilliant and timed with perfection. It's something you'd expect from the likes of Spike Lee.Sorry to be oblique here; but if I say you any more, the ending would be exposed. The last two mins say all - and the first 85 are each bit as entertaining and important. John C. Reilly, Diego Luna and Maggie Gyllenhaal are worth the admission price. Superb, all! See it. Tonight!
