movie. Worth the time. Didn't expect to laugh so much but
ended up doing so. For anyone who doesn't see Jodie Foster in a
comedic role, that's too bad. She does a wonderful job with her role
that I found myself laughing during her scenes.
This is balanced with
the more dire situations of Breslin and Butler. One thing Gerard
Butler does well is yell as the waves are about to engulf him. Some
actors just have good yelling voices.
Breslin shows her
acting skill in her scenes but this is more apparent in the end when she
accepts her father isn't returning.
Butler can play the
affectionate father, the figment of any writer's imagination, as well as
the intelligent-never-give-up scientist, and of course, the eligible
bachelor for Foster's character in the end.
Should Harrison Ford
one day resign as Indiana Jones, Butler can pick up the baton, but as Alex
Rover. The early scenes of Gerard Butler as Alex Rover show his ability
for action with a lighthearted tone and is able to carry this over to the
more one-on-one scenes with Foster.
