Kaena: The Prophecy has an obvious influence on Beowulf regarding the visual design of the arch-villain and its environment. It got its breath-taking moments but is largely boring and feels over-long at a mere 90-minutes (it feels like a TV series).

Running Scared, flashy as it is, remains a sort of wannabe Lucky Number Slevin was, but without fooling its audience. It also has its moments.

The confrontation between Craig Bierko's and Russel Crowe's characters is fun to watch in Cinderella Man. For some reason, I expected it to be a challenging movie, but it's actually just another, edge-of-your-seat sports movie. At least it made me feel lucky that I wasn't in the US during the Great Depression.
