Anthony Hopkins and Brad Pitt had good chemistry but the female lead Claire Forlani really made it work.
Then Sunday on cable I caught "Eastern Promises" and "Crank", I was a little disappointed with the first one. It was totally character driven because the story was very weak, I was surprised it had so many good reviews. Both Viggo Mortensen and Naomi Watts made it worth watching. The second film, "Crank" was pretty much what I expected, a cross between "Shoot em Up" and "Running Scared". I gave them both 6 Stars.
I was pretty suprised that Crank was nonstop action, and crazy shit, like ****ing his gf on the street in front of japanese people
