|Miramax Films | Release Date: December 25, 2000||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
A movie of arresting pieces that don't harmonize into a satisfying whole.
A botched effort. Not necessarily bad, but hardly compelling either.
It's like a tantalizing CliffsNotes version of what could have been.
It doesn't help that Damon and Cruz fail to generate sparks or that the second half of the film, in which John and Lacey face hell in a Mexican prison, feels bluntly edited to fit a two-hour running time.
Never really gets out of the starting gate.
