Return to Phil's Picks



I don't get to many chances to see a movie while I'm on tour, but I had a free evening in San Diego and was lucky enough to catch David Mamet's new thriller, "Spartan." It is an edge of the seat thriller and Mamet's clipped dialogue works perfectly. There is non-stop tension and Val Kilmer is perfect in the title role. He plays a professional soldier – the man who trains the Delta Force and Green Berets – who is sent on a dangerous mission. I won't tell any more of the complex plot, except to say that there are a lot of twists and surprises.
