VERDICT – 2/5
1) Considering this movie as a sequel to The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), we have a Tom Ripley who is no longer a guilt-ridden murderer but a refined and cold-blooded assassin straight out of a John le Carré’s novel.
2) John Malkovich gave justice to the character of a remorseless Tom Ripley.
1) This plot is more about a dying man dragged by Ripley in the game of assassins.
Tom Ripley: I’m a creation. A gifted improviser. I lack your conscience and when I was young that troubled me. It no longer does. I don’t worry about being caught because I don’t believe anyone is watching. The world is not a poorer place because those people are dead. It’s one less car on the road. It’s a little less noise and menace. You were brave today. You put some money away for your family. That’s all.
