Synopsis: After a young girl's family is murdered, she turns to a professional killer for help and guidance.
After seeing this movie you know exactly where the Wachowski brothers got their idea for the reflection in Morpheus' glasses. But I digress... this is an excellent film partly owing to Reno's honest looks of awe, joy and wonder, and also to Portman's most amazing performance. The film has a great opening, creative and somewhat erratic camera work, and a terrific story. Recommended.Added 06 September 2004 at 9:20 PM
Reno was amazing. He said very little with his mouth but volumes with his body and face. Portman was captivating, Oldman was scary, Aiello was good, and the music was used very effectively. There were some powerful moments in this movie, ones that will stick with me for a while. Recommended.
