3.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical Allen film, 12 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Match Point [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
I feel like this is not a Woody Allen film at all. There is little or no humour within the script but it is very well acted by everyone apart from Rhys Meyers. As Rhys Myers is the main lead this is quite a problem and his accent is all over the place - casting should have swopped him with Matthew Goode - who is by far the better actor(check out his performance in Stoker). The jury is still out on Johansson for me her voice is incredibly grating, however she does have the best scene in the film when she really loses it before being bundled off into the taxi. There was a little nod to Crime and Misdemeanours in that Chris gets away with the murder just like Judah does. An average Allen film that feels like it has been directed by somebody else.
