Without giving away the ending, what was one of your favorite scenes?

It would have to be one of the many, many car chases.

On a scale of one to four stars, what would you rate this film?

My wife and I both agreed on ★★★1/2.

What did you think of the cinematography?

It was nicely shot.

Was the message/theme clear?

Yes. Government corruption, etc., etc.

Did it remind you of any other work in film?

It’s very similar to The Bourne Identity, or it felt like The Fugitive, or Enemy Of The State.

To whom would you recommend this movie?

People who like CIA spy thrillers.

Did any of the actors stand out?

Denzel Washington is always tremendous.

And for the ladies, I think it’s in Ryan Reynolds’ contract that he has to take off his shirt in every movie he’s in.

Did you identify with any of the characters?

Being a Realtor/musician … no.

Did the soundtrack contribute significantly to the film?

No. In fact I can’t recall if there was any music at all throughout the film.

Would you buy this movie when it comes out on DVD?

No. I was telling my wife that it was a good movie, I enjoyed it.

But ask me about it again in eight months, and I probably won’t be able to remember what the plot was.

What’s your favorite movie snack?

Popcorn with arare.

But you have to make sure to smother everything with salt and butter. That’s what makes it good.

On a different note, what’s new with you?

Just working on both real estate and music.

Lately, a few friends of mine put together an online show called Hisessions that you can check out on You Tube.
