The fact that it’s in 3-D only deepend the disappointment. For the 12 and under crowd, this movie will pass muster. But above that, the script is for simpletons, the acting laughable, the special effects boring and Seth Rogen is way out of place at the millionaire playboy son of a newspaper mogul. Jay Chou as Kato lends one good performamce, but the rest of the cast will put you to sleep. The legend of Bruce Lee is safe.
This Kevin James and Vince Vaughn movie is billed as a buddy comedy. It is only slightly so. It is more about adultery, dishonesty, personal violence and emotional strife. James and Vaughn play two friends who are in the car engineering business and face serious business and personal challenges. It is sometimes funny, but Vaughn’s repetitive comedy style…playing the same guy in every movie…isn’t very much fun anymore.
Runs thru January 30 on the main stage.
An exercise in urban theology, “The Fall of Heaven” is a smartly cast production with a lot of courage, if not a lot of cogency. The Rep once again shows us it is not afraid of bright new shows with an unorthodox storyline and a distinctive point of view.
