It was OK, and some of the characters were interesting and I would have liked to learn more about them. Joseph Gordon Levitt is quickly becoming the king of the indie filx, but this wasn't his best. I too saw simalarities with Memento and Fargo.

When I saw the trailer for this movie, I thought it had some potential. Joseph Gordon-Levitt seemed like he could fill in a character, Carla Gugino may not have the best acting chops, but she has performed well in quite a few movies. Jeff Daniels Generally gets a single thumbs up in my book. Unfortunately, none of these actors could save this movie from being rather boring and predictable. While I liked Gordon-Levitt's role in the film, it never really shined and the "handicap" was more or less a ploy to get viewers to ignore the obvious, boring, and simplistic plot of the film. It wasn't the absolute worst film I've ever seen, but it definitely would not land on the "good" side of thing either.

The Lookout

This is a very interesting movie. At first, it reminded me of "Memento" but as the film progressed, it evolved into a darker and more serious version of "Fargo." Although I think this movie is less engaging than Joseph Gordon-Levitt's prior films such as "Brick" and "Mysterious Skin," it still packs an emotional punch on different levels. I suppose my main problem with it is that the first half of the film was a bit too slow for my liking. I occasionally wondered where the film was going, if certain scenes could've been enhanced, cut out, etc. I think the acting is strong but I expected that from Levitt. But I did not expect it from Matthew Goode because the only kinds of films I've seen him in are romantic comedies and drama. Upon watching this film, I am convinced that he is a versatile...
