...comes the most pretentious film of 2002: a movie about two guys walking. No kidding. I expected a little more from Matt Damon and Gus Van Sant, perhaps I shouldn't have. One guy actually wrote a review here that is probably longer than the script. Oh, I can see the pitch now...
Damon (on phone): Hey Gus, it's Matt, I've got another idea for a movie.
Van Sant (on phone): Great Matt, let's hear it.
Damon: Okay, Casey and I will get lost in the desert.
Van Sant: Then what happens?
Damon: What do you mean? That's it.
Van Sant: Brilliant. When did you want to do it?
Damon: I'm not sure. This will take a lot of planning and a large… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Short Hunt, Aug. 22 2003
Read this plot synopsis quickly. The film picks up in a battle in Kosovo in 1999. Del Toro is introduced as a soldier in a special opps group as he witnesses the horrors of war. Fast forward four years and Jones is introduced as the world's greatest tracker. Then Del Toro kills some would be hunters and Jones is called in to find him.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's a Start, April 17 2003
Out in Fifty is a low budget straight to video flick. So what? It does the trick. Boy meets girl in bar; boy accidentally kills girl; boy goes to prision; prision cures boy's ills; girl had husband who is rouge cop and wants revenge when he gets out. Typical plot, sure, but this film has redeeming qualities. The cast is decent and provides some good moments. And some of the cinematography is inspired. And, okay, it's dumb, but good dumb.
So basically we are talking about a typical genre film with a few good scenes, and some nifty shots, and it's dumb. I'm not convincing myself to see this movie. But there is a good reason. Why see Out in Fifty? Two words: Mickey Rourke. I won't call it… Read more
