K9 Cops Out

Being that Katherine Bigelow is getting a lot of attention for The Hurt Locker, I thought it might be good to catch up on films by her that have alluded me. K-19: The Widowmaker (2002) is one of those. And it's not bad but it's also not all that special either. Both Ford and Neeson put in solid performances but some of the drama and suspense felt a bit wrangled. Based on a true story it comes and goes losing much of the impact of a submarine in peril.

Revisited Code of Silence (1985) after suggested it to another Tallyteer and I could barely remember most of it save for a few memorable scenes (ex. the chase on top of the moving L train - Brown line?). Always love seeing the Chuck and Chicago but needed more Henry Silva.
