Rating: 2.5/5 -- feels a lot like a retread of Chinatown, only without the style and panache that Polanski brought to the table

Rating: 3.5/4 -- The Two Jakes is the best Chinatown sequel anyone could reasonably expect, and it's very much worth a look. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Points out that we may think we're done with the past but it almost never is done with us. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Of course it's no "Chinatown," but it is satisfyingly moody and atmospheric.

Rating: 3.5/4 -- It's not a thriller and it's not a whodunit, although it contains thriller elements and at the end we do find out whodunit. It's an exquisite short story about a mood, and a time, and a couple of guys who are blind-sided by love. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- The Two Jakes allows Nicholson to reprise one of his most memorable characters as a way of seeing whether he's still got it. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Much has changed since we last saw Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson). The war has come and gone; 1948 Los Angeles teems with optimism and fast bucks. But there's one thing Jake knows hasn't changed: "Nine times out of ten, if you follow the money you will get to the truth." And that's the trail he follows when a routine case of marital hanky panky explodes into a murder that's tied to a grab for oil--and to Jake's own past.
