The Interpreter

It was with great anticipation that I viewed The Interpreter. The cast includes Nicole Kidman, and Sean Penn. The story centers around Kidman's character, who functions as an interpreter at the UN, and hears a little more that she should. what follows is a series of plot turns and twists. Several other reviewers gave it high marks.

This should have been a good movie, but it was definitely not. The background story in the fictitious country of Matabo lost my interest as it doesn't even exist. The story has more characters that a Nascar racecar event, which also contributes to the confusion. The first half of the movie is extremely slow. There are a few decent action scenes, but the whole thing never came together in my mind. In short, skip The Interpreter for something worth watching.

Overall Grade: D
