'Breach' is a good drama about the greatest U.S. security breach in history. Chris Cooper is good as the spy Robert Hanssen, and Ryan Phillipe is also good as FBI operative Eric O'Neill, who helps bring Hanssen down. Good dialogue and good dramatic moments help to fuel the film. The climactic moment at and near a park in Washington, D.C. is very good as well.
Shot in black and white, Good Night, And Good Luck. takes place in the 1950s during the time of Senator Joseph McCarthy's Communist hunt. David Strathairn plays journalist Edward R. Murrow, who attacks McCarthy's interrogating methods, and in return McCarthy claims that Murrow was/is a Communist sympathizer. Director George Clooney nicely mixes in real footage of McCarthy, and a good cast surrounds Strathairn's character. Overall, it is a solid movie.
In this Steven Spielberg sci-fi movie, Tom Criuse plays John Anderton, chief of Washington, D.C.'s Precrime Unit, whose ability to stop murder before they happen has kept the District of Columbia murder-free for six years. Then Anderton himself is blamed for a murder that will happen in 36 hours, and he has that amount of time to figure out who set him up. An average movie; it's a bit confusing at times, and one particular woman does quite a bit of annoying yelling and screaming. Some of the color was taken out of the picture, which is reminiscent of Spielberg's 'Saving Private Ryan.'
In terms of an action movie, Collateral is very good. The plot is easy: Tom Cruise plays the contract killer named Vincent, who orders a taxi dramer named Max (played by Jamie Foxx), drive him around Los Angeles to five places so he can knock off five people. In between action scenes and murders, Vincent and Max have interesting conversations and their movie characters are built more and you get to see more sides of their lives. However, the climax on the MTA is kind of weak and unbelievable. Still, overall, for many reasons, Collateral is a good movie.
The plot of Meet Dave is pretty simple: the mini-sized aliens from the planet Nil, captained by Eddie Murphy, come to Earth inside their ship, a robotic Eddie Murphy, to retrieve an wayward orb and to drain the salt from Earth's ocean in order to save Nil. Murphy the robot is funny, and there are many funny moments, but the filmmakers try and add a serious note to the film, which kind of works. Also degrading is the little kid who befriends Murphy the robot, whose acting is pretty weak at times.
