Strange Days

On loan from Jack, and in anticipation of her upcoming film Hurt Locker, I recently watched Strange Days. It’s a film I’ve been aware of since it came out but just never got around to watching. It’s certainly got a good pedigree so it should be a cracking film, right?

Well, it’s okay, but it’s been a while now since I actually sat down to it and I can’t remember all that much about it. What I do remember is feeling that it was distinctly average. The film has a “millenium fever” feel to it where serves to date it badly. It also has a number of actors who I’m not particularly fond of for one reason or another. And it’s long.

Ach, it was alright, and I can see myself sitting down to watch it again based on the fact it’s a Kathryn Bigelow film but it won’t be for a while yet.
