Denzel Washington, Hurricane lack punch

Tarnished ring: Denzel Washington in The Hurricane.

Tarnished ring: Denzel Washington in The Hurricane.


Rated R.

A number of other fine actors are stuck in the shambles of this production, among them David Paymer and Harris Yulin as lawyers, Al Waxman as the warden, and Badja Djola as an old African convict. None of them do the sort of work they're capable of. Rod Steiger plays a judge. He also played a judge in Crazy in Alabama, and compared to that performance and to some of his other recent work, his acting in The Hurricane seems like a model of restraint and understatement. In anyone else, it would seem like psychosis.
