Review by Nathan Samdahl (B-)
Once again I made the mistake I always try to avoid. That mistake of course is to come into Tropic Thunder with too high of expectations. While the trailers were never phenomenal, I found it hard to imagine a film that starred Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Matthew McConaughey, Nick Nolte and Tom Cruise to be an endeavor that would end up being surprisingly flat and that would miss the comic mark so many times. Don't get me wrong, the film has hilarious moments, mostly courtesy of Downey Jr. who plays the leading African American role in the film within the film. Also, the visuals are fantastic, thanks to one of my favorite cinematographers John Toll (The Thin Red Line, Braveheart). But despite having almost every conceivable element working in favor of the film being great, it just isn't.
