The Corruptor (** Ĺ) - Seemingly the most interesting movie to open this weekend, and while it misses the boat like any number of standard action cop-buddy flicks, I did enjoy a number of moments - namely the action scenes.Chow Yun-Fatís previous American pic, The Replacement Killers, was a John Woo retread with a MTV director resulting in a lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing. The Corruptor is better than that, primarily because itís got a better director behind it, who really gives a nice energy to the action sequences, particularly a well-done car chase about 45 minutes in. A lot of critics are attributing a 70ís action flick flavor to this film and I think thatís justified if nothing to say it doesnít play out its action scenes like a MTV-video. And to quote my fellow film reviewer, Buzz Kilman, there are some good quality kills in the movie prompting one to go ďcoolĒ every once in a while. But, that being said, there really isnít a lot about The Corruptor to praise. Chow Yun-Fat and Mark Wahlberg always seem to deliver their lines like they are on a truth serum or something.The plot isnít original in the slightest and I saw whatever twists (save for what I thought was a nice final touch to the film) there were coming. Which left me only looking forward to the action scenes which I did enjoy, but not enough to recommend the film. If thereís nothing on the video store shelves, when this comes out, pick it up for a look - for at least its better than The Replacement Killers.
