2.0 out of 5 stars Fine performances don't save dissapointing thriller, 21 Aug. 2005
This review is from: The Interpreter [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
First things first. The basic premise of the story follows South African UN Interpreter Silvia Broome (Kidman) who overhears an assassination plot. As she heard it in the main hall of the UN, surrounded by microphones, nobody believes her. Especially Secret Serviceman Tobin Keller (Penn). But as the date of the plot nears, concerns grow about the safety of the target, and the honesty of the Interpreter. The leads, Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn, are - as usual - on fine form and the direction from Sydney Pollack is constructive and well engineered. However, the ridiculous plot and the lack of character development drags the film (especially it's dull ending). The supporting cast is, as you would expect from a Pollack film, is excellent, but yet again the failings of the script merely place these characters filling gaps when Kidman and Penn arn't on-screen together.
As I said, the ending is extremely dull and very predicatble, and after an impressive start, the film brings itself to a standstill. Overall, it promises a lot, but delivers little.
