Another Keanu Reeves movie (can't get enough of him). A nice, light-hearted movie about two bets friends wanting to pass history so they go back in time to learn. That's it. It's actually good, gets a little annoying because the way they talk, but it's quotable and innocent. The situations they get in is funny and the way they solve it puts a smile on your face.
Wow. I don't know where to start; it's messed up. The characters are amazing, the story is superb, the setting and tone is dark yet curious. The interactions with the characters are genuine and you can feel the tension they acquire; it all came together perfectly. The twists are knock-out material, it'll shock you. I wanted to watch this because it's under C. Nolan's name, but now this is my favorite movie of his, period. Only problem is that it felt a little too long, but I was engaged the whole entire time.
Visually, this movie is awesome. Sound editing, this movie is awesome. Everything else, is a no, a BIG no. The story isn't good; it's cliché, stupid, and rushed. The story isn't as bad as the characters though, they were awful. The characters were annoying and even more stupid than the story. The motives for their actions weren't justified and that meant that the interactions with the "Titans" were meaningless. They promised more Godzilla, and we did get that, but it came with shaky camera fights that made it hard to follow and just dizzying. I'm very sad with this, the first trailer last year got me so excited, but it just ended up being too much.
It's nothing compared to his last three movies, but yet there's still appreciation for what QT made us. The throwback to the 60s is top-notch, the life it brought is entertaining itself. Include the acting you get yourself such a engaging movie. No doubt the dialogue is fantastic and enthralling, DiCaprio and Pitt did not disappoint, and their characters are fun. The story is fine, it's nothing special; you can say it's just a tale in Hollywood. You can't help but just like it though, it's though-out and executed well. Was I hoping for a movie like this from QT after 4 years? No, not really, I was hoping for another western. BUT after watching this, I now have hope for him that he can create any film in any genre and still put his signature flash and style to it. Bump this comedy/drama up to 11.
This doesn't deserve all the hate it's getting, but it's not the best in the series. You really have to appreciate the acting, they really put a lot of effort in it and that was the best part. The action was very underwhelming. They substituted all the punches for conversation; while it was fine dialogue, I really wanted another Quicksilver moment – which didn't happen. The story was fine too, but it just wasn't as meaty as the others. And the antagonist sucked, that was bad, nothing good came from it. So, for this possibly being the last X-Men titled movie, you can't help but just enjoy it, yet sadly they gave us a mediocre one.
