I watched this a week or so ago and I loved it :D

The movie is basically a pierce brosnan flick, post 007 of course :)

It's a silly movie with some retarded situations and some very cliched roles and scenarios but at the end of the day, its a FUN movie :D

Brosnan has gotten into a habit of making movies like this. Thomas Crown Affair and After the Sunset come to mind, but in this movie he is not stealing things (well, in a manner of speaking he is, but you know what I mean :D )

The movie bounces around and is slipshod in its production as well as being unevenly paced. The music is also non-descript BUT Greg Kinnear and Pierce Brosnan do an excellent job as a pair of opposites.

If not for their two-some setup in the middle of the movie, Matador would have been a mediocre effort. Instead, they lift it up to a level of decency that makes it enjoyable for the most part :)

Acting is pretty decent and the dialogue is sufficiently filled with dry humour to keep things plugging along.

I give this a 3/5 OSNN rating, decent effort, fun flick.
