Movie Reviews - Slow Burn

Robert's Review

Ford Cole (Ray Liotta) is a big-city district attorney who has his eye on becoming mayor and cleaning up the streets. However, he as a big problem on his hands when his assistant district attorney, Nora Timmer (Jolene Blalock) confesses to killing a man in self-defense in her apartment, but her story has flaws. The situation gets worse when a stranger named Luther Pinks (LL Cool J) shows up at the police station and contradicts everything about Nora's story, painting a very different picture of who she is and what she's really been up to lately. Knowing his career and maybe even his life is on the line… Ford has just a few hours to uncover the truth about Nora, her involvement with a record store clerk, and her involvement with a powerful gang lord that he's been trying to catch for some time. If all this went to press the next day without him figuring it all out, his shot at becoming mayor would be ruined.

"Slow Burn" has a lot of twists and turns, so you really have to pay close attention or you might miss something important. The movie kept me guessing until the very end, which I liked… however, the pacing all throughout the movie is really slow and I got really bored about half-way through the movie. The acting was good, but I just can't stand movies that are this slow… it took a lot of effort just to stay awake and pay attention. I liked the oh-so mysterious gang lord who's seemingly untouchable and omnipresent... nobody can figure out who he really is because he's got so many loyal puppets posing as him to confuse the cops. He's everywhere and nowhere all at once, and he's been buying up most of the city via shell companies for years. It reminded me of Keyser Soze from "The Usual Suspects" quite a bit. Overall, the story is interesting and the twists and turns will keep you hooked until the end… if you can stay awake.

All in all, I'd give this movie 2 STARS (out of 5). Re-watch value: NONE (it's just too slow to watch again).

Brett's Review

"Slow Burn" is a really slow movie; it just kept going and going and going and going with no end in sight. The movie stars Ray Liotta as Ford Cole, a big city district attorney with his eye on the mayor's office and a big problem on his hands. One of his deputies, the beautiful assistant DA Nora Timmer (Jolene Blalock), has just confessed to killing a man in what she claims was self-defense. A bad situation gets worse when a enigmatic stranger named Luther Pinks (James Todd Smith AKA: LL Cool J) turns up at the police station to contradict Nora's story and paint a very different picture of Ford's talented colleague. With his career and perhaps his life on the line, Ford has a mere handful of hours to sort the truth from the lies in a saga involving Nora, a record store clerk (Mekhi Phifer), and a powerful gang lord.

Despite the fact that there were more twists, turns, and ups and downs than a roller coaster with an ending that I never would have seen coming, the story and the plot were just not there. Liotta's performance was very well played as were Phifer and Smith; however the story was just really slow it took forever to get to certain points that were critical to the plot. This was one of those movies that had something important to say but wanted to beat around the bush first for about 90 minutes before getting to the point of at least moving the story along. Again the ending brought everything to conclusion but it was a long boring ride to get there.

Overall Rating: 2 Stars (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: Low (rental or Cable.)

Trivia: "Slow Burn" was filmed in 2003 and is just now being released. What's surprising is that it made it to theaters rather than going straight to DVD or Cable.
