Denzel Washington stars as a CIA spy wanted for turning rogue. Ryan Reynolds (coming off a pair of summer flops) is the inexperienced Cape Town operative who tries to bring him in. Washington is at his best when he plays bad (see Training Day), but this movie turns to mush when we learn the truth about his sinister villain.
Rachel McAdams plays Paige, a woman who gets amnesia after a car accident and forgets that she’s married to Leo (Channing Tatum). This romantic dramedy might sound like a Lifetime movie, but it’s far worse.
Woody Harrelson received Oscar buzz last winter for his turn as a corrupt LAPD cop in this indie drama, which expands into wide release this weekend. It’s the actor’s second collaboration with director Oren Moverman, following The Messenger.
