Spartan

Spartan – brilliant political thriller written and directed by David Mamet. A marine (Val Kilmer) who trains the best of the best has to rescue the President’s daughter who has been kidnapped. The premise is familiar – the President has been into hanky panky with disasterous results. There is no comedy in this film.

I could see a sequel for this because Kilmer is mature, controlled and just excellent. The writing is very tight and so the film has you all the way through – though it is a tad long.

This is political commentary, like Three Kings. This movie is worth the money. Can’t say more without giving it away.

'The Messengers' is like a Christian zombie movie for the small screen

'Marie's Story' captures life's sacramental dimensions
Neither faith nor magic saves 'Little Boy' from its muddled message
