Tonight was a quiet night with The Quiet American (2002).
I continue to be amazed with Michael Caine. Never a dull moment when he is around. While you have other stalwarts who go the extra (100) mile(s) to get into character, Caine does it with great ease. Does it convincingly. At no point can you doubt his being Thomas Fowler; at no time do you question his representation of character.
Brendan Fraser fails to impress. Miserably. I have never been a huge fan, and I think he should stick to being with Mummy. Suits him. In the class act that is “The Quiet American, he is the noise factor.
A definite watch. Especially if you like Mr. Caine’s work.
