    The Interpreter - 4/22

    Release Date: 4/22/2005 Drama, Political, Thriller Rated: PG-13 Runtime: 1 hr 30 mins

    From Hollywood.com
    Escalating events begin when African-born U.N. translator Silvia Broome alleges that she has overheard a death threat against an African head of state, spoken in a rare dialect few people other than Silvia can understand. With the words “The Teacher will never leave this room alive,” in an instant, Silvia’s life is turned upside down as she becomes a hunted target of the killers. Placed under the protection of federal agent Tobin Keller, Silvia’s world only grows more nightmarish. As Keller digs deeper into his eyewitnesses’ past and her secretive world of global connections, the more suspicious he becomes that she herself might be involved in the conspiracy. With every step of the way, he finds more reasons to mistrust her. Is Sylvia a victim? A suspect? Or something else entirely? And can Tobin, coping with his own personal heartache, keep her safe? Though they must depend on one another, Silvia and Tobin couldn’t be more different. Silvia’s strengths are words, diplomacy and the subtleties of meaning, while Tobin is all about instinct, action and reading into the most primal human behaviors. Now, as the danger of a major assassination on U.S. soil grows and Silvia’s life hangs in the balance, Silvia and Tobin play out a gripping dance of evasion and revelation that keeps them both guessing as they race to stop a terrifying international crisis before it’s too late.

    Really? You liked it? I was ambivalent when I saw it last week but after a week of mulling it over, I've decided that it was pretty bad. Like most movies nowadays, the ending was incredibly rushed and fairly illogical. Actually, there were a lot of plot points that didn't make all that much sense or seemed very far fetched. Penn and Kidman delivered, as always, great performances, but by the end I just didn't really care that much.

    I give this movie two thumbs down

    The plot was so-so, there were too many characters to keep track of, the plot was full of holes, Nicole Kidman's face shows no emotion because it is too Botox-ed, incredibly BORING, the ending was crap, etc. etc. I only went to see it because the guys I was with didn't want to see Fever Pitch. After we got out of the movie, they all agreed that a chick flick would have been way better. I hated this movie!
