Director: Tarsem Singh
Release: July 31st, 2015
This role is probably at the very limit of Ryan Reynolds’ talent. He’s not terrible, but he’s not great, and this sort of thriller with a dramatic edge might be right up his alley. Ben Kingsley is thrown in for credibility, and I like Matthew Goode as the villain. I’d be on the fence, but Tarsem Singh directing pushes me to actually be a little hopeful. I loved The Fall (2006), starring Lee Pace and directed by Tarsem, a visually unique film that I still think about. I’m ignoring the fact that he also directed The Cell and Mirror Mirror.
