Your regular stupid person American comedy, with the voices of family guy peppered over it. Story? Who cares. Actors who care? Nope just went in it to get a paycheck. I did laugh, but a comedy should never have long spans of nothing for the story to progress, the story itself should also be funny and not just based on one liners.
The mother of all the epic war movies, this film has all the right elements. Russel Crowe brings us one of his best acting performances and the violence and drama are just as intense. Much care was taken into consideration for costume, and it pays off.
We can thank this movie for giving us the beautiful Natalie Portman, for it was her break out role. In true Portman style, she plays a dark edgy role of a young girl infatuated by a much older man who happens to be a hit man. American audiences might squirm at the small sexual tension between Reno and Portman but a movie should not have to bow to any norm. Jean Reno does a great job as the socially awkward but deadly hit man, and Oldman goes over the top, yet it is somewhat appealing.
Its this movie which made me very much respect Forest Whitaker as a actor. I did a report on Idi Amin and he really did an amazing job with the role. While he stole the movie, he was also supported by James McAvoy who also brought a great performance to his role. A dark movie for a dark subject, yet they managed to sprinkle in a little wit and charm which makes for a positive movie experience.
The ultimate feel good movie in my mind. You really get to know each and every character in this movie and feel as if you grew up a little with them at the end. Smart writing and Grade A performances by the cast make this film a highlight for any and all.
