Shiner Review


Terrible
Not to be confused with dog-story Sounder, Shiner gives us Michael Caine, Martin Landau, and a pile of unknowns at their unbearable worst, in a story about a boxing promoter (Caine) who bets his life's savings on one of his son's fights, only for disaster to ensue.

Although Caine won an Oscar in 1999 for The Cider House Rules, there's a reason you didn't see his follow-up in this movie: because it's total crap. The acting is awful and the story is an insult.

Keaton goes to outrageous lengths -- we're talking costumes, we're talking hiding in a vat of grease -- to evade capture, and eventually he hooks up with Caine and another film employee (Judith Godrèche, the requisite no-name femme fatale) to prove his innocence and out the real killers.
