Critic's Review Heading
Poor
One generally attends a Sylvester Stallone film with the hope of imbibing a testosterone-and-adrenaline cocktail. A typical Stallone outing consists of the hero richocheting from one action scene to the next with as little plausible connecting material as possible in between. So it comes as something of an unpleasant surprise to find that there's very little action to be found bookended between Get Carter's opening and closing credits. In fact, with the exception of a perfunctory car chase and a couple of blink-and-you'll-miss-them fight scenes, the entire first hour is all exposition, dialogue, and so-called character building. The pacing and energy level are as dead as Stallone's eyes behind his ultra-cool sunglasses. There's more going on in the final 30 minutes, but it's all largely incoherent and directed like a music video on speed. Even if this new interpretation of Get Carter had been done effectively, it would have been redundant. As things are, it's a complete waste. Rarely has there been a less thrilling thriller.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Jack Carter (SYLVESTER STALLONE) has spent his life collecting for other people — debts, agendas, retribution. He stands alone and always stands apart. But when his brother is killed in an accident, it takes Carter home ... to the family he abandoned, to the debts that were never paid, and a mystery that will take him to the center of his own soul.

For Jack, the trip home to Seattle is a second chance to make amends for past mistakes. He re-connects with his brother's wife, Gloria (MIRANDA RICHARDSON), and her teenage daughter, Doreen (RACHAEL LEIGH COOK), who are both suspicious of his sudden interest. But when he discovers that his brother's death has murder written all over it, his purpose quickly changes from redemption to revenge.

Jack forms an uneasy truce with Doreen, and soon she is helping him navigate the seamy underbelly of the city, through a deceptive world where nothing is what it seems. Carter is inclined to mete out his own brand of justice to the guilty; but the closer he gets to the truth, the more he questions his own motives, and instead of vengeance, he finds forgiveness and, ultimately, redemption.
