Since I can't Review Matrix 4 Yet(What is this "Spoiler" Protection?) , I'm going to review "The Watcher", pretty much as I watch it for the first time.

Ok Let's see...So far the editing I see is supposed to seemingly disoriented, but it just reminds of a cheap MTV-esque music video.
Rob Zombie song, I dig the choice.
Marisa Tomei, I dig the choice.
Dutch Angles?...I don't dig.
Keanu is creepy, but cringe creepy, NOT Scary creepy so far.
Ernie Hudson? I dig the choice.
I'm going to be honest, as of now, this isn't holding my attention. I'm skipping a little.

What is good about Reeves' portrayal, is the eye work he does. The character likes to sit back and observe the results of his actions, and Reeve's shows that easily.

Some how this movie doesn't build up the Action or thrill at all for. It really seems like something you'd find on MTV if they did movies. A quick movie with quick cuts and a few Dutch Angles. The lead Detective played well, if only one note.

5.5/10 . Watch it once, and done.
