Director: Renny Harlin
Writers: Robert Henny (story by), Robert Henny
Stars: Pierce Brosnan, Jamie Chung, Tim Roth
After a number of unconventional thieves have recruited the famous criminal Richard Pace, he is caught in a complex gold trap that promises to have far-reaching implications for his and countless others ’lives.
Director Renny Harlin (is no stranger to activities with gems Die Hard 2) knows Incompatible is a bad action film and breaks the fourth wall by acknowledging both during the climax. I’m not sure what anyone else would need to know to understand that this is a stack of rubbish in the steam, but nothing goes here.
The first five minutes are mildly promising as Ringo (yes, the character played by Nick Cannon is named after the Beatles, and the film takes countless opportunities to remind viewers) of his theft techniques. The method does not involve direct theft from the individual or his or her home, but rather their safety switches, as legitimate loopholes greatly reduce the risk. I highly doubt now that this is the case in reality, but it’s easy to get ahead with it because the film introduces a bunch of characters who take advantage of their various criminal abilities (Ringo only steals from the drills of society). Other members of the nominal abuses include martial artist Violet (Jamie Chung), demolition expert Wick (Mike Angelo) and an identity-stealing prince (Rami Jaber).
Don’t join too confusingly, Incompatible does not apply to them. It’s the story of a career-criminal Pac (a character who doesn’t steal for the greater good and played by Pierce Brosnan) who escapes from a high-security prison before being executed at the hands of Schultz (Tim Roth). Wrong things get in touch during the escape and help, so they have a leverage effect on Pace and are recruited to assist him with the terrorist gold bullion. Originally interested in doing something to help refugees (somehow stealing gold accomplish this), only when he connects with his estranged daughter Hope (Hermione Corfield, a brilliant rising actress who shouldn’t be close to a small crowd in this film) in Abu Dhabi, who is secretly part of the abuse, where he decides to join the team.
It cannot be stressed enough Incompatible is a terrible film with a script (written by Robert Henny and Kurt Wimmer) that seemingly started as one thing before it became anything else, presumably when Pierce Brosnan signed up for a sleepwalking through her role. And yes, there is no way to say this, but the actress is very bad from almost everyone involved. Jamie Chung and Hermione Corfield seem to be the only ones trying here, but no one needs to do anything. The design of the Heist itself begins even after nearly 40 minutes, meaning we spend time getting to know any characters defined by one trait and given embarrassing jokes disguised as comedy. Ringo’s theft skills, for example, include a master of camouflage, as long as the material is allowed to work, which often includes awkward language-walled humor. The editing is also cruel, like rewinding scenes with Pace and Hope. It seems that the real abuses don’t even matter, which is crazy considering the opening and title of the film.
Even the downstream burst of activity cannot bring life to this. It’s often confusing and unclear what the characters want to do with gold (it’s not helped by the audio and video that constantly slides in and out of sync after it’s fixed every 10 minutes), and the robbery itself has no urgency or input. The only supplement is to give Incompatible is that at least the parties seem to know it to be cruel. Unfortunately, the film is so bad that it’s awful, and it’s not made cheap for entertaining.
