A disgraced ex-cop seeks solace by moving to the woods, but his quiet life comes to an end when a private eye recruits him to investigate the murder of an eccentric TV star's wife.
Some kind of Guy Ritchie vigilante gangster movie. It's bad, just bad. Acting is mediocre but the script is .... annoying. Haven't read the book; not my cup of tea, so maybe the book/story is just a mess, but either way the result (the movie) is a flop.
Last Looks is a mysterious stew that experiments with flavorful ingredients throughout its two-hour duration. The film ultimately collapses under its own potential resulting in a bland and flavorless concoction. Every side character is just interesting enough to pique your interest and the film is written in a way where it seems like everyone is a suspect, but every potentially exciting aspect dissolves before it has a chance to light up the sky; like a really expensive firecracker that turns out to be a dud. The film may be worth a look for Mel Gibson’s flashy, boisterous, and drunkenly absurd performance. The mystery in Last Looks is essentially comparable to trying to discover the expiration date on a can of mystery meat that has lost its label; it may be life-threatening but is otherwise a bore to experience by others.
