It's hard to watch on TV at home, because all Julia Roberts does for two hours is whisper her way through the whole thing. Once her creepy alcoholic professor boyfriend (Sam Shepard) gets blown up, I swear she doesn't raise her voice again for the whole movie. She finally turns on the Julia Smile in the very last scene. Denzel Washington is terrific, or, as my wife pointed out, "better than this movie deserves!"
Tony Goldwyn, James Sikking, William Atherton, Anthony Heald, Robert Culp, Stanley Anderson, John Finn, and, in a near-silent cameo as an assassin, Stanley Tucci With A Great Wig! I decided that he probably never looked better than he did in 1993 (age 32) in this movie (with an expensive wig).
I hope the gang at Rifftrax record a riff on this movie. It's unlikely they'll dig back into the vault, but this movie is full of dramatic pauses. It's ripe!
