Look out for Gordon-Levitt in The Lookout

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is outstanding in his role of a mentally disabled local hero (Chris Pratt), alongside a blind Jeff Daniels (Lewis), who would probably steal the show if he were given just a bit more screen time. Some of the characters were not developed as much as they could have been, and this can leave you wondering what happened to them. Where did Luvlee Lemons run off to? Where did the mysterious Bone come from? Don't expect an intense thriller or an hour and a half of bank robbery suspense, because that's only half the story here. The first half shows us Chris Pratt's accident and his life thereafter, and Lewis bringing a flavor of comedy relief. The second half presents a group of thugs, with Matthew Goode (Gary) as their dark ringleader, taking advantage of Chris Pratt by using him in their bank heist scheme.

Absolutely enthralling. Seriously one of the best movies of the year! Gordon-Levitt is making some smart choices lately with "Brick" and then this fine film. Jeff Daniels is amazing and I couldn't look away from the screen for a second. Go see this film!!!

The Lookout is worth looking at

Lookout is a smart, intriguing and trim movie that features wonderful performances by good guys and bad guys alike. Short on special effects and packed with good, crisp dialogue, it is an adult's movie that explores the relationships between those our culture deems normal and abnormal and the rest of us in-betweens. If you like your films tied up with neat, redemptive endings, this one's for you.
