Thrills and drama are left standing on the tarmac in Boarding Gate, a limp, sleazy inanity.

Boarding Gate's surfaces are often so staggeringly beautiful that its superficiality becomes forgivable

Boarding Gate plays with various genre codes and conventions very differently than most run-of-the-mill modern thrillers.

Seriously flawed and not for every taste...

A ridiculous poseur thriller that seems to be made up of the slow moments from Hong Kong action films and Euro-flashy stuff like Run Lola Run.

This hypnotic, angular thriller about sex, murder, betrayal and money takes you on a feverish journey from nowhere to somewhere.

The plot may be murky, but actress Asia Argento is a clear and commanding force throughout.

Like just about everything in Boarding Gate, the finale suggests that its creators have been watching too many other movies with similar premises and payoffs.

Argento couldn't act her way through a paper towel, but whatever it is she has, it's unmistakable. Call it a victory of conviction over substance, but when Argento is onscreen, you look at her - not because she's good, but because she's there in a way nobody else is.

When all the nonsense of Boarding Gate ends, only Asia remains in memory. She can light up the best and the worst of 'em.
