Why I only rated this a 7: terribly shaky camera movement, nearly causing me to close my eyes (how this new trend in film-making, as seen in other recent flicks such as The Bourne Supremacy and Lords of Dogtown,[...] grainy film footage (yeah, we got it: it's supposed to look like we're really there; last time I checked, real life didn't look like someone threw sand in my eyes), and a story that gradually lost my interest (up until the last half hour, I was really into it) Rachel Weisz is terrific, but unfortunately she seems to be slowly weened out of the movie. The Constant Gardener is what happens when BS style takes over what should have been a really beautiful piece of film and turns it into an exercise in nausea management and forced morality. Someone up there said the cinematography was beautiful; I say "Get some glasses, dude.".
