Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The Mexican (2001)

Directed by Gore Verbinski

Starring Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, James Gandolfini, J.K. Simmons


Pitt is miscast as a normal guy and does a so-so job. It’s hard to sympathize with him or Julia as the central character becasuse both of them are so weird. Instead, Gandolfini as Leroy/Winston emerges as the true hero and steals the show with his performance.

Seems a lot longer than it is due to faulty story structure. Similar to U-Turn in style.
