Anthony Hopkins, just like Tommy Lee Jones in lot of their recentmovies, simply is too old to play this heartless, stone-killer role.When an actor is too old, if some movie investors and casting agencies,still think they are box office insurance, they are deadly wrong. Theseold gizzards would turn off and turn away 99% audiences. AnthonyHopkins just looked so pretentiously and unconvincingly ridiculous,trying so hard to be a highly educated criminal, reciting Shakespeare,even Amadeus Mozart, on German soil. <br><br>Ben Kingsley too, also was a poorly miss-cast role in this film. Theunder-boss role he played in this film, was like an insult to the realcriminals, I just don't know when he was so pathetically andfomulaically die-cast as a old sex beast/sex maniac, a patheticcharacter who would never climb up the criminal ladder to reach thatlevel and position. It's sad to see this great actor now has to use hisold naked body to make some dough, at the same time, a half clown andhalf jerk.<br><br>The young actor who played that mindless, die-hard romantic role inthis film, somehow is a 50/50 right-wrong cast in this absurdcar-chase, car-crash stupid film. His survival in this film was highlyunlikely except he was conveniently provided with such lucks with thescript, so all the time in the last minute, he would rise out of thewrecks.<br><br>Those car chases, car crashes on all kinds of roads in Germany,Hopkins' killers and himself could immediately appeared, even theycould use this naive, dim-wit young guy's cell phone to pin-point hislocations, the sudden show-ups were still not possible, unless thesebad guys had the futuristic advanced technical devices from Star Trek'smovies. <br><br>Again, lot of nice cars were wasted for those mindless "Grand AutoTheft" alike endless chasing and crashing scenes.<br><br>As the movie itself, well, okay to watch but, you've got to put yourI.Q. aside first.
