The battle of good versus evil will never end. There will always be heroes, and there will always be villains. Tragedy will touch our lives, and honor and bravery will rise up through debris and ruble to bring the world back from the brink once again. And the war rages on, but the real question is, "Which side are you on?"
The war on crime has raged on for decades. Deputies fought off renegade cowboys. Agents squared off against mobsters. Cops battled gangs. The streets echo of gunfire, siren lights dance off concrete buildings, and innocent lives are on the line. And sometimes the hero wins, but sometimes they fall.
And evil will never die. No matter how far in time we come, it will always be a shadow away. It could be a seed in youth testing his boundaries to see how far he goes. It could be the lone gunman walking into a post office. A neighbor could seem like a nice man with skeletons in the closet and buried in the backyard. Many faces can mask what really lies within, and monsters do exist. And sometimes, we never realize that they are there until it is too late.
In the movie, the Watcher, we meet the hero and villain. The bad guy is charming, intelligent, and manipulative. The hero is conflicted, tormented, and struggling. The game of cat and mouse was put on hiatus, but the villain refuses to let go. And the dance between good and evil continues.
The hunt to save lives brings the detective back into a world that he tried to shut out. His past demons continue to claw at him, trying to bring him down, but he struggles on. Clue after clue, he gets closer to saving a life, but time is against him. And not everyone will be saved, and the game is almost in checkmate.
The hero confides in a therapist, seeking help, but this act catches the attention of the killer. She becomes the chess game's queen, and her life or death will fall to the hero. But for him to save her, he may have to sacrifice himself, and the villain is ready for him. And before the final act, a disturbing discovery will tell that good needs evil to exist.
A masterpiece of cat and mouse, good versus evil is depicted in this film. The hero and villain are truly defined by two driven actors, James Spader and Keanu Reeves, and with every twist and turn, their characters pull you further into their struggle to win over the other. And the music captures every moment of this movie. The ending delivers closure to the storyline but leaves you wondering, "Will good triumph over evil, or will the hero fall? Time's up."This film won Best Director and Best Cinematography, and was nominated for five other categories. The screenwriter was nominated, and rightly so. Taken from a short story that first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post in 1933 by Maurice Walsh, Green Rushes, Frank Nugent was able to weave a story rich in subtext and conflict.
The collector’s edition of the DVD includes an interview with Maureen O’Hara where she reminisces about filming The Quiet Man, and is well worth watching.
