    Pointless, distracting and astonishingly bad, The Limey is easily one of the least involving thrillers I have ever seen. Although I've never been a real fan of Soderbergh's work, even the extremely self-indulgent Solaris seems earthbound and involving compared to this. This thriller is almost as tepid (wait, make that frigid) as Stamp's lead performance.

    Soderbergh slices, dices and Cuisinarts the script into flashbacks, scene shifts, stop motion and other distracting foolery.
  2. Soderbergh, like Tarantino, has a knack for making every shady character onscreen fascinating.

    A jaggedly impressionistic reverie.
