Those turned off by the first part's reckless, relentless violent purges aren't likely to find cause for conversion, but Vol. 2 certainly broadens the tale's remit, even as it aims to deepen it. Where Volume 1 is about action, Volume 2 is talk, Tarantino's stock in trade, and it's good (if somewhat long winded) talk. It's also another roll call of Tarantino's cinematic loves.
The film may be a bad-boy satirist's mournful acceptance that America has finally become sicker than anything he could dream up. A loose remake of Female Trouble with Polyester's subversively accessible polish, Serial Mom is the strongest film of the post-midnight-movie chapter of John Waters's career. An uproariously funny, marvellously malicious performance from Turner.
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a handsome thriller, anchored by an arresting performance in the title role by Noomi Rapace. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is the best female epic revenge saga since Kill Bill. Rapace goes out of her way to insure you never forget her Lisbeth Salander, a diminutive gal with a colossal chip on her shoulder.
9 TO 5
A frequently hilarious comic revenge fantasy that struck a cord with people from all walks of life. Gets off to a great start but loses its taste for revenge toward the end. The situations and dialogue are reflections of the tiresome grind that has become the average American workforce, a routine of artifice and pleasantries that mask an inner disgust for corporate politics.
Leon: The Professional is a wonderful character study, enriched by outstanding performances, thrilling action, and a well-rounded script that gives the film an intriguing amount of depth. No matter what uncomfortable undercurrents the film gives rise to, Besson's skill with action is inventive and creative. Funny, tragic, brilliant and unmissable.
