Presidents’ Weekend Marathon 1: The Peacemaker

Sometimes I like Mimi Leder, sometimes I don’t. She is certainly a maker of entertainment. Not out to provoke thought, Leder aims to keep your eyes wide open for a couple hours. In this, The Peacemaker succeeds. Lots of excitement, explosions, car chases, the works. Also hackneyed political statements and visual cliches out the ears. Her characters are a lot of fun, and this was a good ride for a renter.

One down.
