I’ve got the answer for you. And it opens this Friday. “Identity” has been receiving insanely great reviews. And from critics whom I admire. One being JoBlo of “JoBlo’s Movie Emporium”: “One of the first fun-time thrillers of the year.” Even Smilin’ Jack Ruby of C.H.U.D. is calling it “scariest since ‘The Ring’”.
Movies like this need support from us folks. You know, to give H-Town the encouragement to make more of these little gems. With X2 opening next week and Matrix: Reloaded the following week, flicks like this tend to get lost in the shuffle. So, here’s a bit of advice from someone who really cares: if X2 is sold out, SEE this movie instead.
The neat thing about movies like “Identity” is that they tend to be worth the $8 or $9 ticket. Good bang for your buck, babee. This movie’s got the cast (Cusack, Liotta, Peet), a excellent director (Mangold) and a excellent script that doesn’t treat it’s audience as “stoopid” - I’m seeing this flick (Ko’s out of town and I need to see a movie Saturday night). Oh, and I’ve already got my tickets for X2 next Saturday (woo hoo!).
