On "Defiance"

From The Dispatch:
Daniel Craig makes for a strong action lead, as evidenced by his work for the James Bond films, and he is joined by Live Schreiber and Jamie Bell (one of our finest young actors) as the other two Bielski brothers. Their relationship gives the film a strong backbone, even during Zwick’s more heavy handed directorial flourishes (his love of slow motion action sequences, for instance, grows tiresome after a while).

If nothing else, Zwick films can always be counted on to be beautiful, and cinematographer Eduardo Serra (“Girl with a Pearl Earring”) once again delivers the goods with his ethereal camera work.
