I was mildly surprised at I wasn't disappointed by the movie. While I think critics were correct to point out that, the characters were pretty stereotypical, and wooden. The action, special effects, and CGI, made the movie watchable for me. I have never played the video game that the movie is based on. So I was totally unaware of the "Easter eggs" in the film, that fans of the game would recognize. I think the star, Amy Manson, did a nice job portraying her character, and looked like she would do well in future action oriented movies. All and all, I thought this was a fun movie.👍👍
The viewer selects this movie, because it is understood to be a ghost/horror film. However, the film is paced in a kind of "slow burn" way. I was waiting for the supernatural part of the plot to begin. But found the bank robber characters interesting. The acting is good, as is the action. I really enjoyed the movie, and the slightly different horror plot.
This is an entertaining movie, and held my interest. The acting is good, and the young actresses playing sisters, (apparently they really are sisters in real life), did a really good and professional job. They were much better than a lot of actors their age are. The plot was straight forward, and there was only one scene. Where I rolled my eyes, and said, "Are you kidding me?" That one scene was the only, tired horror movie device used to add more drama to the movie.
I REALLY enjoyed this movie! I think it is possibly one of the best Super Hero films I've ever seen. What I liked about the movie -
1) The star, Brie Larson. I liked everything about her character, and Ms. Larson's acting style, physical appearance, and the fact that she moved like an athlete. How she moved, reminded me of a gymnast. 2) The supporting cast all did a good job. Especially the young actress, that played the daughter. Her performance was so much better than many actors in her age group. 3) The plot was straightforward, with enough twists to keep me engaged to the end of the film. 4) The film would not have been as good as it is, without the directors skills. 5) The film had a "real life" feel to it, that many super hero films don't. I think at this point, Capt. Marvel, might be my favorite character in the MCU.
The problem with the "thumb up or down" rating. Is that there is no rating for "Meh..". Frankly, I was disappointed with this movie, and after seeing it. Understand why it went to streaming for free, with a subscription of course. I actually rate this movie with a thumbs up and down, or two and half stars. In spite of the apparently positive review, viewers/ticket buyers, gave the Overloard. It only made about 10 million U.S. Dollars, with a budget of 30 Million U.S.D. As a First Person Shooter computer game. The movie would probably be a certain amount of fun. However, these are the things that I didn't like about the movie. Though I gather the production company, nor the audience it was aimed at. Expected it to be taken seriously. The plot, was just a reason for the action and horror sequences. The acting was okay, except that I kept expecting to see actor Jovan Adepo's eyes to pop out of his head. At any moment, during the action scenes. Talk about over acting. Aside from all of the historical inaccuracies. The part where a woman operates a flame thrower, without protective gloves, or anything. Points to the fact that no one who made the film, or paid to see it. Expected it to be any more than nonsense entertainment.
