Revenge for Jolly! Reviews
(2012) Revenge For Jolly!
COMEDY CRIME DRAMA
Co-written and starred Brian Petsos as Harry going on a killing spree to find and locate a hillbilly named Bachmeier(Ryan Phillipe) as a result of an unjust killing of his dog, named, Jolly.
Because it's supposed to be a dark comedy, I didn't think there was a single thing that was even remotely funny. It's only intentioned to specific demographic who can see through all of the senseless violence.
what a random film there wasn't much of a point, story or plot to this movie and it wasnt particulally good yet i felt compelled to continue watching it
They should rename this movie to One Man & His Dog! Anyway, for some unknown reason, I actually enjoyed this crazy movie. The mad situations that the duo find themselves in, really made me laugh and they were shockingly, witty and quirky. The 2 actors that play the leads were a great choice by the director because they are total opposites. One man is completely focused on catching the guy who killed his dog, while the other guy is rational and just out to help cousin. The music throughout the movie, set the tempo well and it's obvious that other people liked the script, judging by the amount of stars that are in it. Anyway, it's a great roller coaster ride that ends abruptly, but will make you laugh. Enjoyable!
It's not very often that I say this about movies, but this film could have done with an extra half an hour. The storyline was well put together by the director, but there was some gaps that needed to be filled. I was hoping for a big showdown at the end, but the director chose to leave it up to the audience to come up with there own assumption. I haven't seen the guy that plays the lead before, so I can't really comment on his previous performances, but in this movie you do believe that he would die for his dog. Anyway, on the whole, it's worth a watch just for its originality and funny scenes.
I recommend this movie to people who are into there comedy thrillers about a man whose out to revenge the mysterious death of his dog. 7/10
Offbeat and funny.
