“Just consider me the best cocktail party story you ever met.”
Star / producer Pierce Brosnan exercises his comedic chops in this rather nuanced look at the life and career of a veteran hitman. Julian Noble (Brosnan) meets a struggling businessman, Danny Wright (Greg Kinnear) when their paths cross in Mexico City. The two become good friends – better friends than we even realize at first, because after Julian has botched more than one job, he becomes a dead man walking. And it is Danny to whom he turns for help. While Danny and his wife “Bean” (Hope Davis) are understandably dismayed at the presence of a professional killer in their home, they get over it, becoming rather intrigued by this charming, eccentric individual.
The supporting cast features some solid actors – Philip Baker Hall, Dylan Baker, Adam Scott – and Davis is enchanting as the loving wife, but the main reason that “The Matador” works as well as it does is due to the interplay between two interesting characters. Brosnan and Kinnear play this extremely well; indeed, Brosnan has never been quite this endearing or amusing before. Also, “The Matador” is a highly offbeat affair, foregoing some of the trappings that one might expect from a tale about a hitman. It forgets about violence (for the most part) and action set pieces, concentrating on its poignant moments and its humour.
Written and directed by the talented Richard Shepard, “The Matador” spends some time globe trotting and offering up some international locales. The title stems from Julians’ enjoyment of watching bullfights, and belief that the spectacle is not without honour. The struggle of our haunted main character to overcome his mental blocks and emotional problems does make him vulnerable, and certainly as likeable as any person could be who earns their living killing people.
The brief sight of Brosnan in a cheerleaders’ outfit is absolutely priceless. He’d made a good living playing debonair types, but here he really cuts loose for once, and the film is all the better for it. But this is not meant to sell Kinnear short, as he does an excellent job at playing the “straight man” with a tragic past and uncertain present.
Seven out of 10.
You got to love Brosnan when he’s in form like this, brilliant performance in not equally brilliant movie
Two years ago I watched “The Matador” in cinema and I loved everything about this movie. Obviously, I was totally under impression of Pierce Brosan’s magnificent role. Yesterday, I caught this movie again on TV so I looked at it a bit deeper. Now, I can say with certain that this movie isn’t that special but you just gotta’ love it because of one man.
Brosnan lifts its grade up in my opinion with amazing performance of Julian Noble, tired hit-man who has no friends. Soon Julian meets Danny Wright (Greg Kinnear) in Mexico City, man who’s got bad luck: his son died in accident, his job isn’t going that well and he’s not sure that he can keep his wife Bean (Hope Davis).
I always liked movies like this; crime movie with big touch of humor. Mostly that humor comes from Brosnan as he tells jokes about dwarfs with big d…. or one of my favorite lines in this movie: “I look like a Bangkok hooker on a Sunday morning, after the navy’s left town.” Brosnan says it with his charm while he’s drinking his margarita as usually. I also like Greg ‘typical American face’ Kinnear in the role of loser that is very lively made because there are plenty of people like Danny Wright.
So I recommend you to watch quite possibly the best role of Brosnan ever. He’ll make you smile and admire him at the same time. Great Brosnan in not equally great movie.
