Good movie with a solid story based on actual events. The intensity of the attitudes towards one another during the Cold War was very well done. Because it is not a typical spy film and bases as much of the story on actual events, it is not overly suspenseful, dramatic, or intense. If you go into this expecting James Bond or Jason Bourne, you will be disappointed. James Donovan was a lawyer and Tom Hanks' portrayal of him is pretty spot-on from what I read. If you appreciate history and lived through the Cold War you will enjoy this.
Scary. Exactly what you want in a horror movie. It also has a great ending which makes it even better. In fact, the ending I just did not see coming at all. There isn't much character development, no spectacular acting, and some elements are left missing. This delivers with simplicity what many fail with big-name actors/actresses, name-brand directors, large budgets, exotic scenes/locations, and forced scares.
I liked the series up to this point but this is just a very long movie with hardly any action or something to keep you going. Literally I felt like I was sitting through a 2 hour seminar with someone putting up a few interesting slides from time to time while talking my head off. In the end I see what they wanted to show us but good grief they could've done better. You don't get to see/learn much about the planet or what it's like outside the wall very much and in the end they're right back where they started pretty much. Disappointing.
It's the same kind of jokes as the first one, but it's a good film. In comparison to the crap coming out of Hollywood lately, this is luckily not crappy. The story was decent and predictable, but the interactions between Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are hilarious. And now you add Ken Jeong and it's even more funny. The "oh hell no, he's a zombie; head shot" scene, alligator scene, and the four in the truck during a stakeout scene laughing so hard and uncontrollably that I had to pause the movie to catch my breath.
Very good movie. They do a good job trying to explain the jargon used in the financial world for all of us regular folks as well. The script was outstanding and well told; finally a good one after all the recent movies ruined by their own terrible scripts. I'm not one for dramas or films without comedy, action, thrill, etc., so this says a lot for me to like a film that is pure drama.
