The Quiet American

This is one of the slowest paced and dull movies I have ever sat thru. But other than that sad fact, it's not that bad. Wait, what am I thinking? The love story is lame. I'm still thinking what the whole point was. We never know anything about either of the main characters, and then we're supposed to care later when the plot thickens (more like curdles) and turns into a murder mystery?!? Talk about a total rape of Graham Greene's novel. This film is boring and trite. The lighting sucks, and Brendan Fraser is sleepwalking thru it. Michael Caine is okay, but nothing special like he normally is. I was glad when the credits rolled, because I know I will never sit thru this garbage again. Stay away. Don't be lured by the Oscar glow.
