Saw Black Dahlia with the Mrs. and two exchange students. Loved the look and feel, and the pacing and dynamics weren't too bad. Aaron Eckhart was fun to watch, Josh Hartnett wasn't so much fun, but as "Mr. Ice" I wasn't expecting him to play it up - so I felt he was in line with the character. More of a dull, plodding Continental Op-type character as opposed to Eckhart's Nick Charles. The plot could have been trimmed 40% and made more sense. There were too many tangled webs to sort through. Too many people in the movie had a peripheral role. I could have used a scorecard and diagram and a second viewing to keep track of it all. Not enough closure, but then again this remains an unsolved mystery so maybe there is a point to be made there. My opinion might change after seeing it again, but that's not at the top of the list this time around.
