It’s a Dito Montiel movie, which means that it’s not super fabulous but that it also grows on me until the final scene when I decide I like it, after all. This movie also did the impossible: I actually found Terrance Howard’s acting to be quite good in this film, which is a reaction I’ve never had to the man’s craft before. Aside from the pleasure of watching Channing Tatum wandering through New York participating in illegal fights, this movie exposed me to a world I would have never seen and that, I think is Mr. Montiel’s gift.
Cost: $2.75 from Videorama*
Where watched: at home.
*Me: I have four movies left in the Channing Tatum Film Festival and I’m hoping you have them.
Clerk: Are you the founder of the Channing Tatum Film Festival?
Me: And its only participant!
Clerk: What exactly do you see in Mr. Tatum?
Me: It’s the weirdest thing, but he’s quite alluring on camera.
Clerk: He’s certainly a big slab of meat.
Me: I know! That’s what makes it so strange!
