"The Manchurian Candidate" Not Quite Electable

Yesterday afternoon I took in "The Manchurian Candidate" starring Denzel Washington, Liev Shreiber and Meryl Streep. It was okay. Tons of plot holes and it felt very disjointed, almost incongruous at times. (Mmmm.. synonyms...) I haven't seen the original (yet) so I can't compare them. Nonetheless, I'd say this one is worth either a rental, a matinee or waiting until it hits the movie channels on digital cable (a.k.a. HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Stars..).

Alan's Movie Rating: Cable-Worthy
