Two Line Reviews - #234

Movie:  Mystic River (2003)

Plot: When three kids play in a lane, fate shows its ugly face on one of the kids when he gets abducted by 2 paedophiles. The kid escapes from them but not from his trauma. After years, their lives confluence under bizarre circumstances - the daughter of one of the kids in the story is murdered, another kid is a suspect and the third kid is the cop investigating the case!

  • This again is an admirable piece of work by Clint Eastwood. He is one gem of a film maker! The story & screenplay writers deserve their share of applause too.
  • Sean Penn is the show-stealer with his brilliant performance; Tim Robbins isn't far behind in his role of a timid, traumatised character & the cop men Kevin Bacon & Fishburne act adequately.
  • The suspense cover & the twists take this film at quite an intensity aided by a subtle background score - again by master Clint E!
A Savourable, artistic tale of Crime Investigation & Fate!
