Never Grow Old, starring John Cusack, Emile Hirsch, and Deborah Francois. The film takes place in the pre-war nascent town of Farlow, on the California Trail
Cell is ultimately a missed opportunity. Despite my love for horror and much of Stephen King’s work, none of it is really all that scary.
I’ve said it before I have no idea why Thomas Jane isn’t a bigger name, sure he works and he works a lot and yes mostly genre roles and I think the reason is he’s very good, genre isn’t easy and here even though it’s an action and not horror he invests himself.
The director Lucky McKee, not too long ago he looked like he could be a very good genre director, he had May, The Women, The Woods but this film, well it’s a work for hire and it really shows. It’s too bad cause we need directors you get genre and do it well to keep working at it.
I really like Jason Patric, I always thought he should have been a bigger name and here I like his take on this character he’s a former hitman and from the sounds of it he was a head case so of course he got out and got married had a family and left his old life behind. Now this film is a Taken knock off, guy’s daughter is taken and the father has to use his skills to get her back but in this case he’s a former hitman and a nasty guy and what I like is as soon as Patric goes back to his old haunts he’s that guy again, basically what the movie is saying is that people don’t change they hide.
