There are so many good moments in this, it pains me to admit that it fell so short of its mark.Matt Damon gives a thoroughly enjoyable performance as Loki. The scenes of him and Ben Affleck on their twisted journey are well directed and smooth. Jay and Silent Bob are fun as always. Alan Rickman is amazing despite some too-lengthy monologues. Jason Lee . . . he's Jason Lee. I wish he was in it more. That's my only complaint with him. Then you have Chris Rock. Funny guy, no doubt.
Now the females. I have nothing against my own sex. Really I don't. But Linda Fiorentino and Salma Hayek were definitely the weak links as far as characters go. Not necessarily through their own fault. They just played too flat in comparison to the widely talented male co-stars. Although Janeane Garafalo and Alanis Morisette were kickass for the few moments they were on.
Kevin Smith is always dialogue heavy, but the exposition was stifling here. The back-stories of the characters were indeed funny, but the story seemed to pause each time they began their tale. It became very jolting and bumpy. By the end I was feeling a bit here and there and it just didn't seem to come together. The points made were nice, but the last scene just kept going. I just wanted the whole thing to be tidier. (that goes for the excremental demon too)Check it out for yourself.
