The Mexican

This isn’t a bad movie at all. I thought casting Brad Pitt as a bumbling errand boy was a bit of a stretch, though. He is too cool to bumble. James Gandolfini makes the movie watchable as a hitman with a twist. Brad and Julia both overact, but the movie is kind of over-the-top, so maybe that’s not such a big deal. In general, I was not as disappointed as I thought I might be. (***)
