My admiration for Milla Jovovich is from two films: Dummy (2002), co-starring Adrien Brody, where she plays a klezmer punk singer, and this one: .45. (2006). There is a certain acting talent that can play roughness convincingly. In .45, her co-star is Angus Macfadyen. Together, they are a couple making their money selling guns on the street, in circumstances where Macfadyen, like Jovovich, can play darkend roughness in a very convincing and frightening way:
Jovovich is known as the star of the Resident Evil franchise. Macfadyen has yet to have his due; a recurring role in Californication , some work on Criminal Minds , some mixed associations with the Saw franchise, but little after .45 that is commensurate with the roughside talent demonstrated.
