First Hit: A film that didn’t quite work in any way, shape or form.
Richard Gere and Terrence Howard are teamed up as a reporter and cameraman respectively.
They are admired and win awards and then Gere’s character flips out on a live broadcast. This virtually ends his career. We learn later why this happens as these two meet up later and go for the prize interview/capture.
This film is lazy, does little to explore their depth as people, and ends up being almost laughable. The scenes which they were to be scared just didn’t work because their fear was badly acted, misplaced and lacked real content.
Overall: There was nothing compelling about this film and it’s too bad because there may have been a good story in this somewhere, but it didn’t come out in the script, acting, direction, or presentation.
