Twisted and heart-breaking. And actually sends a message. A simple message, but a message.
I was really worried about this movie because of the boooooooooooooring trailers.
And indeed it was boring in the middle (2nd act). Also a bit cheesy.
But also with an amazing start and an amazing finish, great "no heroes/villains in war", great "imperialism as bad as terrorism", messages. A lot of "grey" on a society (me included) that only accepts black and whites.
Also Brie Larson was incredible and with all the emotions, confused, sad, happy, cocky, etc.
Really enjoyed. After Antman and the pathetic Wasp, Marvel goes back on track!
Look. It's directed as a "mystery movie", but its definitely not.
So that's bad.
But the acting from Logan Marshall-Green is awesome (or at least perfect for the character), so he carries the movie on the weakest parts.
They had a chance to do something surprising entering the third act, but they used it to mantain the same flow the movie had...
And the ending was predictable and just "ok" at beast.
The last shot is what makes it a 6, or a "good" movie for me. Because it somehows makes it scarier.
1st Act: Emotion. This is the act were the toughest things happen. This is were Diane Kruger acts the freaking hell out of this movie. Not that she's bad after, but if you aren't convinced about her performance here, I don't know what to tell you.
2nd: Plot precision. There is plot since the start, of course, but here, there is alot of attention to detail, the story goes one way and settles the table for the third act. Is more than anything a plot driven part, with little character moments here and there, but is perfectly done.
3rd: Visual Symbolism. The ending closes the movie on a literal note too, but serves the purpose of elevate the whole thing to another level by some, although a bit obvious, beautiful symbolism where everything that the movie stands for is clear for you to process
