Now I was extremely impressed with Training day. However, KA is a very different type of film, and I haven't seen any real evidence (i haven't seen KA yet, out on the 30th) that he can direct this type. To me the difference is like seeing a movie poster saying:
' "Suspenseful Axe Murderer 3", directed by the director of "Winnie the Pooh, fantastic adventures" '
