One of the biggest fans of movies ever, I pride myself in writing reviews and share my thoughts to the rest of the RT community, I am most fond of Quentin Tarantino films for their general layout, and how he so skilled at producing top class films, with my favourite being Pulp Fiction, it is just so in-depth and brilliant beyond belief.
A weak, limp version of The Bourne trilogy, accompanied by a well known cast tht just seem to make the situation worse, I couldn't help but feel the urge to leave, but I didn't, just had to think about the first 10 minutes I had just seen. The film is filled with some cringy action scenes and a script that could make me cry, I got through it, at last.
Just when I thought Julia was onto a winner for the books, she wasn't, and Tarsem did nothing to help that, with some nice effects, it's clear as day that it needs major improvement, but that's too late, the comedy is weak and spoiled by the performances.
Going for the Harry Potter ending effect, and failing badly, the film consists of some strange scenes and absurdly awful script, the director is better off finishing now while he still has an ounce of dignity, while the actors have no idea what they are doing and clearly haven't spent time on this kiddie project very much.
It's very hard to describe such a wonderfully structured film in so little time, but No Country for Old Men manages to capture every ounce of your focus in this McCarthy adaptation, the Coen brothers construe a spectacle from the novel which leads to a ridiculously crazy ending that can be hard to follow for some, me included, I found the death of (no names) quite insignificant after all they had been through. I also found that the film killed off many character without the blink of an eye, some may see that as a negative aspect, but personally, I found it quite noble, and showed that the Coen's were a little further than pleasing the crowd. The plot, characterization and general script was solid and provided us with 2 hours of an in-depth, complex and all round Texan action for the audience to enjoy.
I suppose there isn't much to comment on, which is seen to be a bad thing, but it is made up through the main characters shining through the screen and bringing a nice, comfortable film to watch with the family.
I am glad the cast was changed as it is always nice to see some diversity in each installment, as this one seemed to have it all, from a good plot, to some real snazzy gear and action, it's almost as if Tom was made for the center role, alongside some highly talented actors such as Jeremy Renner himself, including some revealing twists and turns brings the story to an open ending that rings all the bells for a sequel, and for a high octane one at that.
Definitely one of the brightest, funniest festive films of the year, with easily recognizable voices (which, might I add, I see as a good thing) with a fun plot and all around one little girl, I'm sure there are quite a few people that can relate?
