    A tale of two movies.

    I actually really enjoyed the first half of this. It was nicely poised with several interesting characters, good atmosphere, plenty of tension and I wasn't exactly sure what direction it would take.
    But sweet jesus, this one descended into complete and utter chaotic idiocy where logic and common sense went out the window and in came an avalanche of cliches and overused tropes...by the time the credits rolled I was left scratching my head a bit as to what the film makers were thinking.

    This could and should have been a pretty decent movie.

    A small police station in the Nevadan desert (in the aptly-named Gun Creek) is under siege after it puts a man with a price on his head (Frank Grillo, fresh off Boss Level with the same director), as everyone wants to kill Teddy in this tight little "Precinct 13" comedy thriller. Gerard Butler is pretty great in this, perhaps showing that the rest of his career is the result of script failure (or, of course, agent failure). Toby Huss, as the more psychopathic hitman, is having a lot of fun and so are we. But my biggest props go to Alexis Louder who, despite her small size, has great presence, and makes for an awesome straight arrow cop - the hero of the piece. But really, even the bit parts tend to have a personality and some fun moments. Director Joe Carnahan evidently has a love for 1970s trashy exploitation films and has made a witty one. Pleasant twists and turns, though I'd have liked a line of dialog here or there to justify some of them, but ultimately, loads of fun (that may or may not be a gun pun). 4 weeks ago
