      Audience Member I was watching a James Spader interview. While he could not remember this movie's name, he recalled having a wonderful time with Josh Brolin. If a film is forgettable to one of the principal actors, it should warn the viewer that they will regret the experience. Nevertheless, I endured watching this movie the other night. I stayed engaged for about the first 30 minutes. Initially, I suspected this film might have drawn some influence from Bogart's 1948 classic, "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre." Whatever thematic similarities "Slow Burn" had with John Huston's Academy Award-winning film, they were lost in a desert wasteland of incoherent rambling and poor character development. The only reason I rated it two stars instead of one, I was somehow able to watch through the closing credits. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Very slow paced stupid pointless movie. Very uneventful. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Not great, not terrible. Could have been a pretty good story, but it wasn't executed very well. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member A suspenseful, captivating, and well-acted character study. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member When I learned of this film I got pretty gosh darn excited. Josh Brolin and James Spader as escaped convicts trying to outsmart Minnie Driver in the desert as they hunt for long buried diamonds!?!?!? Spader and Brolin!!!! Two of my biggest man crushes in cinema acting baddie!!! That’s awesome! Then I see them on screen together. Dear god, Brolin is playing an over-the-top dolt and Spader is mustached, sunburned, black dyed, and talking like Rizo from Midnight Cowboy. They are terrible. So terrible, I was deeply uncomfortable every second they were on screen. I kinda like how the story plays out but Spader and Brolin are so bad I could barely make it through the movie. Real shame this one. VF. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member It is boring, and James Spader is unrecognizable.
