The Watcher

Despite being one serious mess of a film there are some moments in THE WATCHER to make it worth your while and pretty much all of them belong to James Spader. As the cop with a haunted past and a pill problem Spader is able to use his trademark intensity to the fullest. Keanu Reeves on the other hand claerly doesn't want to be here, in this case for real due to a business problem with the director. The director, I use this term with hesitation. Joe Charbanic has only made one film and here his stylings are that of a kid who just got her first video camera. The film might not have been so bad if there weren't so many slow motion shots. Marisa Tomei is totally wasted, much like your time should you sit through this one.
