Joe's Review of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Ben Button was a fun film. It was long, which is fine, it was well acted, which is great, and the story was well put together and made sense, which is mandatory. But there was a lack of depth to the whole story that was covered up by the unique case of Ben Button, of course him growing younger rather than older. Why this is not a homerun is because there was nothing out of the ordinary about the character other than the obvious. No accomplishment, no talent, no failure, nothing. I enjoyed it though.
