I don’t know about you people, but I’m ready for the Halle Berry career renaissance. I think that we, as a symbolic nation of movie fans, are ready to completely forget about the likes of Catwoman and Die Another Day and Gothika and Things We Lost in the Fire and embrace a second wind. She’s a fine actress, a more-than-capable screen presence, and when it comes to more recent Berry performances, more people should talk about her brave and bonkers work in the brave and bonkers Cloud Atlas.
In any case, she appears to be carving out a new niche as the star of lower-budgeted thrillers. 2013’s The Call was a modest hit and Kidnap looks to be cut out of similar cloth.
