So I just watched The Salton Sea last night, and without including any spoilers (it sucked), let me just say it wasn’t very good. And it got me to thinking, specifically about Val Kilmer. Like far many actors, you can split his career into two distinct parts, after which there are really no good movies in which he has appeared. For Clint Eastwood, that pretty much happened with In The Line Of Fire (1993). For Val Kilmer, I’m pretty sure he hasn’t been in anything good since Heat (1995). Which is a shame, because I’ll keep seeing movies with them in it (see the above Salton Sea).
Other examples of career-breakpoints welcome, and if you can name anything that breaks either of these ones I’d love to hear it — I’d like to see either of these guys in something decent.
