While I've come to enjoy Thomas Jane the more and more I see of him lately, it appeared upon first glance that Give 'Em Hell Malone may not have been one of his better decisions. Happily though, the film is a stylish, semi-enjoyable piece of pulp-noir that Jane appears to be quite at home in being in. Jane stars as Malone, a tough PI who has been double crossed and is now up against a crew of gangsters, including an old nemesis (Ving Rhames), a pyromaniac (Doug Hutchison, doing his best Heath Ledger Joker impersonation), and their boss (Gregory Harrison); all the while with a mysterious damsel (Elsa Pataky) in tow. Unapologetic in its blood-letting and violence, Give 'Em Hell Malone is certainly fun enough to enjoy and features style to spare from Highlander and Resident Evil: Extinction director Russell Mulcahy. What detracts from the film however is some just plain horrible editing and a screenplay loaded with plot holes. Still though, for what it's worth, Give 'Em Hell Malone is an enjoyable enough experience, and you could do much worse than what you find here.
