It's not a great film but I do love Pacino in it. Although whenever I see him in anything I'm always aware that he's always teetering on the brink of unwatchable. That may be why I like him so much. That tension from knowing this could all go horribly wrong but never quite does.
And on that topic, just watched
Frankie and Johnny
This is a good test film for anyone undecided on where they stand regarding Pacino. The film itself is decent enough and seems to get better as it goes along but really, it's all about Pacino being Pacino for two hours. I have no problem with that personally but I can definitely see why some people would.
