3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a watch., 19 Nov. 2013
By 
This review is from: The January Man [DVD] [1989] (DVD)
Kline takes centre stage in this oddball mix of thriller and comedy. There are some massive highs in this, Alan Rickman is brilliant even though he has very little reason to be in the picture. Steiger and Aiello chew up the scenery and their potty mouthed dialogue is a real 80's throwback. Mastrantonio is effortlessly charming and her delicate scripting provides much more than the standard love interest we're used to. One of the strongest aspects in relation to the script is the strange love triangle between Kline, his shady brother (Keitel) and the sultry Susan Sarandon; leaving the real tale about a serial killer sidelined from time to time. Despite the police department having the case for nearly a year they're no closer to stopping the killer and reluctantly draft their former top detective (Kline) back into the fold. Kline makes easy work of the clues and his resulting sting operation jarringly skirts the comedy / thriller angle but it all comes good in the end. It's a breezy and un demanding movie, parts of which, such as the frequent loud swearing and Mastrantonio's pretty revealing sex scene are somewhat unusual compared to contemporary fare.
