Watch The Matador - Alternative Versions.
A Note: I think it's best if go to the theater thinking, "Pierce
Brosnan = James Bond." This is what I was expecting. Normally, I will
have seen the trailer before going to a film. In this instance, I saw
an advance screening as a part of the Austin Film Festival and had only
seen a promotional photo of Brosnan walking away from an exploding car.
This reinforced the stereotype I had for Brosnan. I think the
distributor of this film would have been wise to promote it in this
manner, feeding people's stereotypes by using this James Bond-esquire
image, for I think the effectiveness of the comedy may in large measure
be a reaction to what a drastic departure it is for Brosnan. And this
was, no doubt, his intention.
Plot Summary: The story is about hit man Julian Noble. Noble, on
assignment in Mexico City, has somewhat of a meltdown when he realizes
his nomadic existence has left him with no one -- no friends or family,
not even a place to call home. Desperate for companionship, he starts
up conversation with Danny Wright, a normal guy, with a normal life, in
town on business. Unaccustomed to normal social etiquette he scares
Wright off, but pleads for forgiveness the next day and requests that
he accompany him to a bull fight. And the comedy begins as Julian
decides to open up to his new friend more about what he does for a
living. All is well until Julian realizes his "meltdown" is serious and
he is having difficulty following through on his "assignments." He
therefore has to ask for help from his new friend Danny.
Analysis: Brosnan took a substantial risk in signing on to this
picture. Paying him less than he would normally receive, and requiring
that he sport a creepy 'stache, a pot belly and trade in his custom-
tailored Armani suits for tight-fitting-euro-pimp threads, you would
think he would be out of his element. It turns out to be quite the
contrary. Brosnan proves that he is more than James Bond or Thomas
Crowne. He proves that he can be one of the most entertaining comedic
actors working right now as well. The dynamic between Kinnear and
Brosnan is delectable. Kinnear plays such a likable straight man cum
everyman, and Brosnan plays such a likable hit man, and the combination
of the two is irresistible. Their rapport with each other is so ripe
for comedy that you want it in every scene.
While the film uses many conventional cinematic devices, I couldn't
help but feel as if I was watching something very fresh and original.
Largely, I can attribute this to the performance of Brosnan, but it was
also interesting that the film maintained the feel of a fast passed
action movie, in keeping with Brosnan's most notable genre.
I highly recommend this film.
