Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as a fellow who has suffered serious head trauma, comes up with such a moody Method assemblage of twitches, tics, and guilty Memento mannerisms that he’s not much fun to watch. The Lookout, the first movie directed by screenwriter Scott Frank (Out of Sight), is a thriller that wheezes along on bits and pieces of ”character.” The hero gets hoodwinked by a local scuzz (Matthew Goode) into assisting in a bank robbery, which puts us in the unpleasurable position of feeling sorry for a protagonist too out-of-it to grasp what the audience already knows.
