Fantastic documentary about one person's search for the identity of another from a treasure trove of photo negatives, home-made films and assorted 'stuff' acquired at an auction. I could relate to this film in so many ways. Highly recommended especially if you have a penchant for photography at all.
A beautifully crafted film in which Colin Firth does a very fine job portraying Eric Lomax in this story based on the true life experiences of the author. The inner pain and anguish after having been a Japanese prisoner of war haunts the character and eats away at his soul. Nicole Kidman as his wife does all she can to help him deal with the ghosts of his past.
A totally different type of role for Jude Law in which he brilliantly portrays a rage-filled criminal who is recently released from 12 years in prison. He has some scores to settle and a lot of lost times to catch up on. Definitely worth the diversion from the typical hollywood fare at the cinema.
Have to admit, I was tempted to walk out early, but there was enough raunchy, dirty humor to keep me watching and smiling. The audience loved it and I did find myself laughing out loud in many parts. Zac Efron is worth watching and Dave Franco did a great job too.
Perhaps it is because Captain America is one of my favorite superheros due to his wholesome "Everyman" persona (I could only hope that more men were like Chris Evans, right?) that I liked this film so much. If you are a Marvel fan or liked the first CA film, you will love this one too.
I definitely liked that fact that they went deeper into character development and a decent story line and kept the CGI to a minimum.
Grab a large popcorn and go see this fun and fast paced movie when it opens this weekend!!!
