The Watch

The Watch(2012)

No idea what people's problem is with this film. I found it to be most entertaining as Stiller and Co. take on the role of Neighbourhood Watch in order to protect their small town. I mostly enjoyed it because the actors played very slightly different characters. Vaughan wasn't a slimy letch, but an overprotective father who was killing everyone else with kindness. Hill was a slightly disturbed outcast, and Stiller was genuinely concerned for his environment and wasn't a screw up. Ayoade worked well as the weird addition to the group. Great to see some practical effects given a lot of room to breathe life into the film. Funny lines, lots of great chemistry between the leads, and a story that was more engaging to me as opposed to the similarly themed Attack The Block.
