Too far fetched for me
on 9 November 2017
Once again I have been duped by the good reviews for a film. Denzel plays a quadraplegic who is allowed to continue investigating murders even though he is bed ridden. He alone can see the potential in a rookie cop [Angelina] and he is allowed to use her to investigate a series of murders whilst he maintains control via modern day electronics.
Angelina obviously fits the pattern for the modern American investigator - 30-ish, $5k's worth of collagen lip implants, $10k's worth of dental work and a figure to die for. They must pay police officers an awful lot in the US.
The murder scenes are realistically grisly but the roles of Denzel and Angelina and the way the rest of the police force fawn over them made me press the eject button before seeing all the film.
