Insomniac Alert - You Won't Need Ambien - Watch this Movie Instead!
Our whole family are huge Redford fans - 3 Days of the Condor and Jeremiah Johnson being all time favorites, but this movie, which comes off like the Geratol version of 3 Days was a huge disappointment. A stellar cast: Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon, Shia Lebouf, Chris Cooper, Nick Nolte, and Terence Howard, could not rescue this sleepy drama.
I came expecting "3 Days of the Condor" revisited, or something akin to "The Fugitive", but instead, it was duller than "the Bridges of Madison County".
In the last act, I found myself falling asleep, waiting for some drama. There just really wasn't any. Nice to see some favorite actors, but this one won't win any awards and will be best appreciated at nursing homes.
