2.5 stars only because this type of shootem up flick is not my style. The advance screening crowd tonight seemed to love it though. By far the most violent movie I have seen in a very long time. I lost track of the body count at around thirty. It does have a certain witty brilliance to it though..., maybe I should bump it up a notch. Nah.
Think '60 Minutes' piece on The Lost Boys of Sudan fleshed out into a major motion picture..., but done in a very good way. I could really empathize with the refugee characters (stick around during the credits for the full story) but felt that there was something missing in character development for the American's roles in the story. All-in-all, a good story worthy of the big screen.
When you need a comedic drama to lift you up a bit, go see St. Vincent. Incredible performances by many in this cast. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised that we might even see two of Oscar's acting nominations come from this film. I laughed. I cried. I had a good time at the cinema tonight.
Clearly I am a sucker for a romantic drama with beautiful actors. I received a last minute invitation to the advance screening tonight (thank you RB) and wasn't sure what to expect going in. The story was well told with some unexpected turns throughout but when all was said & done it gave away its ending but by that time the viewer doesn't care or is willing to forgive. We are just grateful for the journey we've been taken on.
