...because, as movies go, it was utter pants. I'm hoping that when the script came along it looked way more promising than it turned out to be. Perhaps it was poorly edited, I don't know, but I do know that it sucked like a big sucky thing. As a rule I usually try and avoid movies that feature Mickey Rourke. In my opinion he's made about three decent movies in his entire career, most of the characters he plays are just too over the top for me, and that's certainly true of his role in 'The Courier'.
So why did I buy it, you might ask and why on earth would I award it three stars? The simple answer to that is Jeffrey Dean Morgan. 'The Courier' may have been dire but he gave it his all and even in a movie this awful his best never fails to be impressive. Also he looks so damn gorgeous in it that I'm pretty sure my ovaries went into meltdown.
So, in a nutshell, if you're a fan of Jeffrey Dean Morgan then this is well worth buying, if you're not then avoid it like the plague.
