In spite of all the hype, Slumdog Millionaire succeeded in living up to expectations as one of the best movies of the year. The cast was tremendous, especially lead Dev Patel. The story was fantastic. I just wonder if it was an accurate enough depiction of slum life in India. Some of it seemed a little implausible. But it is a movie, and it succeeded in drawing me in.
The only negative thing I have to say about Slumdog Millionaire is that the love story was a little weak. I think this is because the two love interests are not on screen together long enough before they are separated. This made it a little less enthralling once they were reunited. Other than this I thought the rest of the movie was near perfect. Danny Boyle proves he is one of the best directors out there. Slumdog Millionaire is probably the best movie of the year. And even though I haven't seen Benjiman Button or Doubt, judging by the commercials and reviews I can confidently say Slumdog Millionaire is a better pic. I'd probably only compare it to Milk and The Wrestler. Maybe Frost/Nixon.
