Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Clive Owen!

Mar. 24, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

Movie Jail

This is Movie Jail, a unique maximum security prison that houses some of the worst writers, directors, actors and producers from Hollywood and beyond. Their crimes? The offenses vary from convict to convict but most of these inmates have contributed negatively to the film world to some capacity and his or her misdeeds have covered a long enough period of time that the authorities had to intervene. In each column a defendant is put on trial, arguments are made, and then it is up to YOU, the jury, to decide if the person is guilty or not guilty of crimes against cinema. Their lives are in your hands, dude.

The Defendant

The Case

The Prosecution: Intruders, Hemingway & Gellhorn, Killer Elite, The International, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Derailed, King Arthur, Beyond Borders

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the prosecution understands many people really like Clive Owen. Children of Men? Closer? Awesome movies with great stuff from the actor. But in the past few years we've seen him in some less than fantastic films, and at times, Mr. Owen's performances have been very boring.

Mr. Owen's monotone voice works well for him in most cases, like as Dwight in Sin City, but when the movie is bland or the actor doesn't have a lot to work with, Mr. Owen becomes very dull to watch. While the prosecution wouldn't say he mails it in, his turn in several films have been lackluster, and the movies themselves have been uninspiring. Intruders just isn't a good film in the prosecution's opinion. Killer Elite and King Arthur are both examples of terrible movies with weak performances from the actor. The International is incredibly tedious, and Mr. Owen certainly didn't help things with his performance.

Why is Mr. Owen slumming it in these films in the first place though? At this point shouldn't he be working on bigger and better things, not mediocre thrillers and shitty action flicks? Maybe part of the reason is because Mr. Owen doesn't have the greatest range as an actor. It seems like every other movie Mr. Owen is playing another smart, tough dude who wears a rumpled trench coat. If he was doing great work or was appearing in solid movies it wouldn't be such a big deal, but it's disappointing to see Mr. Owen become such a one-note actor.

Mr. Owen was nominated for a few acting awards for the HBO film Hemingway & Gellhorn, however the prosecution believes it wasn't a strong performance from the actor, and he struggled with an American accent. It may not matter in other movies, but when you're playing Ernest Hemingway, you kind of need to sound American.

The prosecution isn't looking for a long prison sentence for Mr. Owen, but we believe it's obvious the actor needs to go to Movie Jail for a bit.

The Defense: Trust, The Boys Are Back, Duplicity, Shoot 'Em Up, Inside Man, Children of Men, Sin City, Closer, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, Gosford Park, Croupier

Ladies and gentlemen, you're not believing this crap the prosecution is slinging, are you? My client has been doing fantastic work for years, and while some of his most recent films haven't been great, he definitely doesn't deserve to go to Movie jail.

But have his movies as of late really been that dreadful? The defense (and I'm sure most of the jury) doesn't have anything good to say about Killer Elite or even Hemingway & Gellhorn, but what about his smaller films, like Trust and The Boys Are Back? Both feature great performances from my client, even if the films themselves aren't perfect.

However, the defense believes it will be Mr. Owen's older films that will keep the actor out of prison, as they should. Children of Men and Closer as two of the actor's better movies, however Shoot 'Em Up was also very fun, as was Sin City. Besides those popular and well-known films, Mr. Owen also did superb work in Croupier and I'll Sleep When I'm Dead. Duplicity might be a forgettable film, but it was still a nice little hit for Mr. Owen. Inside Man also received good reviews from critics, and was a success at the box office.

The prosecution says my client doesn't have the greatest range, but Mr. Owen can do both drama and comedy very well. The previously mentioned Duplicity has a nice mix of both, and his appearance on television's "Extras" was hilarious.

Nice attempt prosecution, but Clive Owen isn't going to Movie Jail.

IN CLOSING...

Are you fine with Mr. Owen's recent films, or do you think he's been working on projects that are below him? Is he a decent actor, or has he played the same type of character too many times? Is Clive Owen GUILTY or NOT GUILTY?

COMMENT BELOW WITH YOUR VERDICT!

*The cases for and against a defendant going to Movie Jail by the author are not necessarily his views and opinions but they are some of the beliefs that one would use to effectively make an argument for both sides. Not quite a devil's advocate but you get the point. Anyways, this is all in fun so don't take it too seriously. We have a separate jail for those people called "Troll Tower" and believe me you do NOT want to go there.

WHAT SAY YOU, GUILTY OR NOT?

LAST WEEK'S VERDICT

 

Chris Columbus' screenwriting credits definitely saved the director's ass in last week's trial. The jury has found Mr. Columbus NOT GUILTY of all charges, and most said there was no way the man who wrote The Goonies and Gremlins was going to Movie Jail on their watch. Directing the two Home Alone and Harry Potter movies certainly helped, but without those two 80's flicks, Mr. Columbus would probably be sitting in a prison cell right now.

NOT GUILTY

Gaaah, I hate to succumb to what is clearly click-bait, but this is insane. Move to dismiss, and fine the prosecutor for wasting the court's time. Mr. Owen, you may go.

Guilty. I just don't think he's that good of an actor. A good script and director can make him seem good (like Children of Men and Sin City), but without those he's just bland. He never really elevates the films he's in, and I feel he could often be replaced by more interesting actors. Maybe if he didn't always seem to play the same guy in every movie, he'd be found not guilty.

Not guilty

Why is he even considered?

Children of men? Awesome(And arguably his best movie)
Inside man? Awesome
SIn City? Awesome
Arthur? Entertaining popcorn movie
Not guilty and have this prosecutor disbarred for even trying to bring this case.

HELL NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT GUILTY! Derailed is Prosecution for Owen but was Defense for Aniston????

WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT! So, Derailed goes under The Prosecution to Mr. Owen
yet Derailed was on The Defense for Jennifer Aniston.
That makes sense!
Also, King Arthur and The International were good films.
Clive Owen is a bad ass, and I loved him in Closer, Sin City, Shoot 'Em Up, and Children of Men! The face that he's not in Sin City 2 pisses me off greatly!

The distribution between Prosecution and Defense isn't just about whether the movie is good or bad but also whether the performance is good or bad. The guys at JoBlo liked Aniston's performance in DERAILED. They also liked Nicole Kidman's in HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN because it was listed in the Defense.

Derailed had a good Aniston and Cassel, but it was Owen who carried the film. So I agree, It should be on the Defense!

I agree Vits. Prosecution and Defense is more about the performance than the film. With that said, I did not like Derailed, it was a so-so film in my book, but Owen gave a good performance.

Not guilty.

Clive shouldn't even be on trial. He is one of the most magnetic, dynamic, and versatile actors working today, and he's starred in some of my favorite movies in recent memory. Children of Men is a top 25 film of all time and Shoot Em Up was one of the most fun action movies of the past decade.

I've no particular reason to think Owen deserves movie jail, but Shoot 'Em Up was a bloody awful film. Guess it would appeal to some folks but I thought it was complete trash.

Well this was a stupid suggestion. I will admit I'm not always thrilled with his choice of role (he would be a PERFECT action star If he would just do more intelligent Jason Statham type movies.

Of the movies that I've seen:

Children of Men: Loved it.
Inside Man: Loved it.
King Arthur: Just okay.
Elizabeth: The Golden Age: Just okay, though forgettable film.
Sin City: Hated it.
Shoot 'Em Up: Hated it.
Derailed: Hated it because it was annoying and I totally guessed the twist early on.

I feel split. Just cause I'm nice let's go with Not Guilty, but have the Movie Jail officers follow him around for a few days to see where he goes.

He is Not Gulity...granted he hasnt had a good stand out hit in a while, but he always does the best with what he has to work with....he needs to find better work, but that does not mean he should go to Movie Jail.

I thought you chose him because of BLOOD TIES.

But you didn't even mention it. You didn't mention a lot of his movies. I realized that it's because most of them (at least when he's the only star in it) have gotten a limited release. Do studios not have faith in him anymore? If so, he should be Not Guilty for the same reasons Carrie-Anne Moss was.

It's really hard for me to let him get away free. I've seen around 3,000 movies in my life, and KILLER ELITE is in my Top 5 Worst. And it's not like he did anything to save it. But he was good

But he was good in HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN (the ocasional accent slip is nothing compared to the display of emotions), THE BOYS ARE BACK, DUPLICITY and GOSFORD PARK, 4 movies I didn't like overall. He was also good in TRUST, ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE (definitely inferior to the 1 one) and CLOSER, 3 movies I thought were flawed but decent.

I have to re-watch SHOOT 'EM UP, CHILDREN OF MEN and SIN CITY because I saw them a long time ago. But so far, I've yet to see an actual bad performance from Clive.

Next week: Dennis Dugan, Robert Luketic, Andrew Niccol, Ridley Scott, David Spade, or, Sigourney Weaver.

He hasn't done anything remarkable lately, but I just watched Derailed yesterday - and it was a well-executed, above average thriller, thanks in part to Mr. Owen's performance. And he sure was great as Hemmingway.

Are You Kidding Me?

Clive Owen is not guilty, at all. Yeah, "Intruders" is a boring mess, but it's a boring mess with ambition that simply fails to get any tension going. So even his bad movies aren't bad in a generic fashion, which I believe speaks to why he isn't guilty- he's trying different and challenging things, even if those don't always pan out in his favor, it's good enough that he is doing such varied work.

This seems like harasment! Clive Owen is does the best he can with whatever is thrown his way. Heck, even his background supporting roles he stands out; Remember The Bourne Identity? That god-awful Pink Panther remake/reboot?

If those casting rumours were true he would have made an awesome James Bond now that i look back and would have given the character a sensitive darkside without being over dramatic instead of the 'superhero invulnerability' antics of Daniel Craig.

Not Guilty in the least. The prosecution has definitely surprised the hell out of me here. Some of those movies actually deserve to be on his Defense. King Arthur by no means was a great movie, however his performance I think was pretty damn awesome. He brought a war commander feel to the role, which I thought was really fresh and invigorating. Also, his work in The International was just fine. I thought was was actually a really good flick. Additionally, Hemingway & Gelhorn and Elizabeth were

I'm sorry but no...Clive Owen will never be guilty. He is a great actor. Yes, he has been relatively quiet these past few years making under the radar films, but that doesn't make us forget about the great films he has been apart of. On a side note, The International was a really great film and should be on the defense, not prosecution.

Guilty, sorry to say

The current state of his career is pretty much exactly why our imaginary movie jail exists. Look a the defense. Some undeniably great films in there, but they're all nearing 10 years of age or more. Everything the guy's been doing lately has been crap to the point that his face on a poster is dangerously close to being a signal of poor quality. We all love Clive, but the guy needs to get back to form.

Not guilty. In terms of "British actors who always seem to be playing the same characters", he's definitely more versatile and more credible than, say, Jason Statham - not a knock against Statham by any means. I liked The International - far as I'm concerned, there need to be more "arthouse action" movies out there. Also really would've love to have seen him play John Constantine but I'm guessing that ship has sailed.

Oh please put either Jason (play the same part) statham or Ray (play the same part) Winston on next weeks movie trial. I do not buy either one of those in their movie roles. Tell a lie I like Jason in Lock Stock and I liked Winston in Face but that was probably because they were the first roles I saw them in and little did I realise their performances would be repeated.

Statham has taken the stand, he was deemed not guilty. Come to think of it, you do have a point, Ray Winstone does always play the same character too. Wonder if his Tubal-Cain in Noah will just be a Biblical-style Cockney gangster too.

No way!!! He's one of the "most innocent" actors this section has ever seen! I never saw a bad performance from him.

Not guilty. The Prosecution side surprised me. The International? That movie was very entertaining. The Guggenheim shoot out scene was exhilarating. The Killer Elite is a throwback to 70s action movies. Not guilty.

Are you nuts ????????????????

This guy is one of the most lgant and fine actor of the earth.... he has both the body of an ordinary man and the class of a Natural Born James Bond....
None of his movies deserves to put him in jail, at worst, it's just disappointing movies !
The International is excellent, and Shoot em up is the most pleasurable movie of the 2000's
C'Mon guys, are you serious ??????????? or are you just uninspired ??????
