******SPOILERS****** Film Noir type movie set in Savannah Georgia that tries hard to stay afloat but it&#39;s waterlogged plot sinks it in the last fifteen minutes. <br/><br/>&quot;The Gingerbread Man&quot; is not at all a boring or bad movie it really holds your attention and you want it to deliver the goods via a surprise and film noir like ending. The movie like &quot;Hurricane Geraldo&quot; that lashes the Georgian coast during the entire film instead just sinks under it&#39;s wind swept waves. <br/><br/>&quot;Gingerbread Man&quot; has all the right ingredients for a film noir classic. It&#39;s directed by legendary director Robert Altman but it&#39;s story gets so muddled and confused that by the end instead of packing a wallop it just fizzles out like a balloon with a hole in it. <br/><br/>The chance meeting and later relationship between Rick Magruder, Kenneth Branagh, and Mallory Doss, Embeth Davidtz, at the start of the film is incredibly unconvincing and contrived that you can easily sense that Rick is being set up to be used for some unknown purpose. You can see Mallory constantly staring and trying to get close to Rick at the party before they meet outside in the rain.<br/><br/>Mollary&#39;s crazy and religious father Dixon Doss, Robert Duvall, who is being manipulated to be the villain in the film also doesn&#39;t seem at all that convincing of a being a heavy. If anything Dixon seems to be more normal then most of the people in the movie, like he so perfectly made clear to the court at his sanity hearing. And it doesn&#39;t surprise anyone that he like Rick is being set up for some reason known only by the villain or villains in the film. <br/><br/>Kenneth Branagh is very good as the person who&#39;s being used to unwittingly do the dirty work to clear the way for a 10-15 million dollar grab of fifteen acres of valuable black walnut trees. So is Robert Duvall as the person who they belong to and are the main reason for the crimes being committed in the film. <br/><br/>Besides the top stars in the movie there are also very good performances by Tom Berenger, Pete Randel, as Mallory&#39;s ex-husband and Famke Janssen, Leeanne, as Rick&#39;s ex-wife as well as Daryl Hannah, Louis Harlan, as Rick&#39;s law partner. Robert Downey Jr.,Clyde Pell, sparkles is a small but important role as the detective that works for Rick&#39;s law office. Still the illogical and contrived ending in the movie as well as some of the sub-plots that lead to it wastes their efforts and spoils what could have been a very good crime/mystery film.

With this movie, it&#39;s all about style, atmosphere, and acting. True, I didn&#39;t believe all of the plot developments, but it didn&#39;t matter- the terrific acting, the unexpected plot twists, and the wonderful atmosphere sucked me right in, and carried me along for the ride, and I had a great time. Kenneth Branagh is not only a great actor but a master of accents, and he proves it once again with a flawless Georgia accent. He&#39;s surrounded by so much talent in supporting roles (Robert Downey, Jr., Embeth Davidtz from Schindler&#39;s List and Fallen, Tom Berenger, Daryl Hannah, and Robert Duvall) that I was simply blown away. I recently bought a copy of this movie, and I never tire of watching it. Simply one of the best thrillers of the year. If you&#39;ve ignored this movie (and chances are you have), then I suggest you check it out.

I don&#39;t understand the low 5.7 rating on this film. It&#39;s a delight for people who like a strong suspense plot and dark atmospherics. The tone is reminiscent of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, down to the locale (Savannah). The acting is strong, and I was amazed at the verisimilitude of Kenneth Branagh&#39;s southern accent. Famke Jansen is great, Robert Duval is effective in a small part, and Embeth Davitz is the BOMB. Great full nude scene of her,too.<br/><br/>The plot is fairly standard but effectively executed.
