Neal Mottram needs money, he has a devil statue and is involved in black magic and witchcraft as well. Neal starts killing for his demon idol and money comes in for the sacrifices. The police are suspicious of him and his accomplish wishes to stop. Will Neal get away with it in the end with help from the dark lord or will the law catch up with him? Not a great movie to be sure, one or two good lines, cheap through out. Watched it on youtube where the video has 22 positive ratings to 10 negative. :)
Well darn if the fans, critics, and I agree on this film, and the last.
Haven't read the books and not going to but a pre-teen daughter of a friend says the books are better, I will trust her.
The first film wasn't bad but had it's flaws as does this one, however Catching Fire improves on the first in minor ways and has more surety to itself. Also it's easier to get into as we've been introduced to most everyone and the world they inhabit.
So for the book fans it should be loved, for casual movie fans it should be appreciated, and the serious film fans should accept it more than the first as it is for whatever minor reasons a better piece of film. - maybe I need to re-watch the first? Nah, not yet.
Since watching the first film Jennifer Lawrence has become a super lovable media darling celebrity, and she's added several career highlights to her short resume, she has quickly become a stand out performer of her generation, if she improves with age and she seems to be doing so then I hope she lives forever and I'm there to see it.
A trip back to 1985 thanks to Pee-wee and Tim Burton. Big Adventure is entertaining enough, a few laughs, nostalgic and worth a watch. I had seen it long ago but remembered little so borrowed it from a friends collection.
