She became too successful, too much of a main icon, and like all those actors who have reached that level, her time has arrived and she is now bound to be destroyed by Hollywood audiences. We start all of our reviews with the following information. So I really can't see what's wrong with this movie. Whatever they have for every one else is a more or less lacking shadow of what the original was.
It really does make you wonder if many reviewers have actually seen the latest movie. More on this later, right now let's move onto the review. The only difference is that they get to write about the movie and are forced to see hundreds of movies whether they want to or not. The plot is interesting even though, this movie is more for the mind playing between the main characters and how Catherine continues her writing with new ways and twists for her novels. I think this is a far better thriller than many of the run-off-the-mill crap Hollywood so readily distributes these days.
Unfortunately, she seems to be the main target for those who enjoy trashing this flick. The film is a popcorn flick and never tries to be anything more than an entertaining and over the top thriller. The cinematography and art direction were lush and extravagant and made me want to move to Britian for sure. This is just a run-of-the-mill follow up sequel that is as bland and boring as every other product that was churned out by studios at the time. Not every movie is supposed to be a new The Lord of the Rings! I expected an absolute disaster, and got something which is easily one of the most exciting films I have seen in a long time. Just because there is nudity and language they hated it.
If you are a veteran or a novice, this speaks directly to you! The mysterious killings are just fun to follow even though you already assume who the killer is which is pretty obvious although still never stated completely. Sex, violence, and a great ending that will leave you thinking and talking about it for hours! You won't get deeper into the mind of a criminal psychopath in a Hollywood film than this one. If you are a man; you should definitely spend 7. I found it sick, brilliant, twisted, and psychologically sophisticated. It's an entertainment-movie, and by this standard it absolutely delivers in my opinion! It really seems that this movie didn't have a fighting chance, because now it seems to be a popular thing to not give anything a chance. She is an intelligent actress who is not afraid of taking risks and can play with camp at her leisure. It's simply a pleasure to watch her as Catherine Tramell, and all of the other actors deliver solid performances, too! Using easy-to-follow lessons and step-by-step instruction, this practical book teaches you concepts and hands-on techniques, then reinforces your learning with video screencasts and supplemental materials.
Sharon Stone turns in a mostly witty and sharp no pun intended continuation of Catherine Tramell, Complete with incomparable physique, sexy sultry voice, and some more blonde poison. Therefore, it is our belief that if you get your monies worth for two hours of enjoyment that is good enough for us! I think people are going in expecting too much. It's the sequel that everybody including me! First comments on this movie were so vicious that I had to see for myself. People need to get over the fact that Sharon Stone is 48,and that Michael Douglas isn't in this one. Not everybody will enjoy these movies, but I bet there are more than who admit they do. We only care about our friends and those who we know like the same things as us.
Catherine proves to be a very clever and manipulative woman, and though Nick is more or less convinced that she murdered Boz, he is unable to find any evidence. Your local critics or the national critics like Ebert are really no different than you or me. The truth, is that there is actually damn all wrong with the movie. Storyline: Crime novelist Catherine Tramell is living in London, and becomes the center of police investigation yet again when her football player boyfriend drowns in a car accident and it is revealed that he was already dead because of a drug overdose before Tramell drove the car into water. David Morrissey is a much better actor and by far more interesting than Michael Douglas: his acting is flawless, giving a dense, complex dimension to an otherwise one dimensional character. Her co-stars, however, do not measure up.
She a fine actress, but surrounding her with unfamiliar actors in London, and handling a script that lacks everything witty and tight that Joe Eszterhas weaved in the original picture, is just disastrous. Sure there's some overacting from some characters but there's some brilliant work from David Morrissey who's virtually unknown. No one cared when the Golden Girls sat around eating cheesecake and discussing their first orgasm, but to see someone post menopausal getting digitally pleased while driving I guess is just too much for some to handle. They are too critical, perhaps because they are stuck in the past. Her one liners are great, much like in the first one. My advice to everyone is see it for yourself and make up your own mind.
David Morrisey was satisfactory even though he is no Michael Douglas. Since he has more screen time and is the axis of the movie, he can keep your attention from beginning to end. Though, like Detective Nick Curran before him, Glass is entranced by Tramell and lured into a seductive game. I saw this movie yesterday and I really liked it. Maybe the story isn't Oscar-caliber, but it never even tries to be! Sharon Stone reprises her role as Catherine and once again finds herself mixed up in some trouble. Sharon Stone is awesome in this role, just like she was in the first one.
I think it's part of why the film doesn't work. The setting was also fabulous and the whole atmosphere of the movie was that mysterious,thriller like masterpiece. As for the technical part of the film: Only real setback is the B-rate crew of actors. It never simply copies the original, it has a quite clever story, has tension, action, humor and the absolutely stunning Sharon Stone reprising the role of her life! The rest of the cast are like fish out of water. It's an erotic thriller that is both erotic and thrilling, and is a continuation of a brilliant character that we all love to hate. With 47 years when shooting the movie she looks hotter than many stars in their 20s, but it's more than her being beautiful, it's brilliantly acted, with all her looks, her famous smile, the way she speaks and moves.
