Val continues to impress me, but this movie was just awful. I really don't know what was going on with this movie? When I saw this at the video store I was like cool, Val Kilmer playing a expert thief and it's his last job, sounds cool to me. Wrong! This movie should have been titled "Phone Booth 2: Columbus Day", because that's what he does pretty much through the whole darn movie, calling people on the phone. I sit watching and waiting for something cool to happen, but to no avail the movie just kept getting more and more boring. That's the only thing that I really hated about the movie, it was just so boring. I also got tired of the style choice of flashbacks, and that he used the phone way too much.
The acting in the movie is good for the most part, Kilmer can and has done better in recent times. I understand what the filmmakers were going for, a more 70's style thriller. It is a shame that they missed the mark by a long shot.
Columbus Day gets a D- Enjoy!!!
