Scavenger Hunt 74
12. A film soundtrack featuring Linkin Park. ("Numb/Encore")
This really didn't work for me for a couple of reasons. One, the wooden acting of Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx, complete with mumbled dialogue and a lack of 'partner chemistry," and two, the romance storyline with Isabella, played by Gong-li. No way a lady that sharp is gonna go fall for a shady businessman she just met, but apparently Crockett can just whisk her off in a high-speed motorboat right after their high-stakes, big drug-deal meeting and it's nbd. That would never happen. I would've liked to see her have more agency in this film.
I usually like Farrell and Foxx as actors, but they were too stiff here. The stylishness and moody music can't make up for the leaden central performances. Sorry, Michael Mann, wasn't feeling this one.
