Bryan Brown. Brian DENNEHY. And the Deadly Art of Illusion.

Post  Yakima Canutt on Wed Jun 06, 2012 5:58 pm

Rollie the Smirking Effects Man is now a toymaker who is asked by cop Mike, the ex-husband of girlfriend Kim, to help catch a killer and then an unknown man kills both the killer and Mike but Mike's boss, Silak, says it was the killer who killed Mike but Rollie knows it wasn't which means Silak is probably involved with Mike's death. Enter The Dennehy. And thus the telemetric clown must be taken to the Holy See before it is late, too late.


Regretfully this rollicking ripsnorter wasn't good enuff for the connosurs at the New York Whines Shampaper who reported:

the real star of "FX2: The Deadly Art of Illusion" isn't Bryan Brown or Brian Dennehy but a motherfucking clown robot named Bluey.

Wearing a special "telemetry" suit connected to the robot by remote control, Rollie can make the mechanical clown duplicate his every movement right down to the twitch of a finger and the roll of an eyeball. During the movie, Bluey becomes Rollie's stand-in in brutal hand-to-hand combat, and in the final sequence, he even pilots a fucking helicopter.

Bluey is only the most dazzling gadget in a thriller that periodically stops in its tracks so that Rollie can demonstrate his improvisatory skills at special-effects [ or SFX] crime-busting. In the wittiest sequence, set in a deserted supermarket, popcorn, molasses and an array of aerosol products and cleaning fluids become effective weapons in a battle with a gunman who ends up with his motherfucking head shrink-wrapped and stamped in the store's meat department.

As long as it is fixated on gadgetry, "FX2" is reasonably entertaining. But when the movie focuses on plot and character, it turns dotty as shit in an amiable way. The story is as far-fetched as it is tortuous and deals with police corruption, the theft of some priceless gold coins, relations between the Mafia and the motherfucking Vatican, and a boy's computer software. It also involves two double crosses, neither of which comes as much of a surprise. At the end of the movie, shitty loose ends are dangling fucking everywhere.

Mr. Brown, who suggests an Australian Michael Caine Bridge Toll Collector and fuckmaster Dennehy, who is comfortable as fuck in his portrayal of a gruff olde-time Pew York cop, make an appealing if totally unlikely pair of partners. Joanna Gleason lends a steely edge to the largely thankless role of an ambitious assistant district attorney. Rachel Ticotin, as the woman in Rollie's life, has nothing to do except be endangered like a motherfuck.

DENNEHY: The words "double cross" definitely come to my mind.

Nemesis: The word "dead man" comes to my mind.

DENNEHY: That's two words.

Dennehy also played high-prestige roles, such as General Leslie Groves in a movie about the Manhattan project.
