Four Days in September

"OK"

Four Days in September Review


The story may be true, but that doesn't make this tale of four hapless Brazilians who kidnapped the American ambassador in 1969 any better. While the picture wants desperately to be a true version of The Crying Game it isn't much more competent than an installment of The Bad News Bears. Amazingly, the complete idiocy of the young revolutionaries who kidnap the ambassador (Alan Arkin) is matched only by that of the law enforcement officials who try to save him. Dreadfully boring, poorly paced, and acted lackadaisically. Definitely a miss.
