At the beginning slower pace turns gradually into thrilling tempo that doesn’t stop until the end.
Not a unique story but it’s sufficient when you try to show an ancient civilization and it’s brutality. You can discuss whether it is accurate representation of mayan civilisation or not. It’s always difficult when the civilisation is at least several hundred years “extinct” and thanks to location pretty “mysterious”. You should just grab some popcorn and enjoy the story about a guy who is trying to get back his family, hm typed like that it sounds like another Liam Neeson’s movie.
It has solid action sequences and overall it’s a great movie which takes place in surroundings not so often used in Hollywood.
Did you ever wished to discover the lobyist world but you wanted something more serious than the movie Thank you for smoking? Now is apparently good time to introduce you Miss Sloane.
Everything revolves around the strong main character, Elizabeth Sloane, one of the most successful lobyist. She will stands against most powerful oponent she ever did. Where is the crossing line when it comes to winning? What is “too much”?
Jessica Chastain plays really charismatic but also quite a bitch person. Probably one of her best perfomances. You can’t love or hate her character but you can admire her skills when it comes to “playing chess game”. There is lots of politics is involved, so hands off if you don’t like politics in movies.
Oh and Miss Sloane is very face paced movie you’ll probably don’t notice the length, 2h and 12 minutes.
It’s a shame this movie wasn’t nominated for oscars.
It’s one of those movies in which the story is quite uninteresting with believable neat retro visage. The main characters has a cold impression. Their emotions are simply not there.
So when it comes to Story, development of main characters and the main plot, you just don’t care.
Yet for some strange reason I so much enjoyed watching the whole movie thanks to the cinematography by Don Burgess. The steady continuous shots that were made with extreme precision, love and were also delicately cut. Absence of fast cutting and notorious shaky camera.
It was orgasm for eyes but hammer blow for brain.
I guess, the sole reason wheter you’ll like this is built on presumption you like movies soaked with positiveness.
It’s not a particularly funny movie yet it is pleasing to watch how the story goes. But again, if you don’t like those kind of “feel good” movies you have to back off immediately.
This film is very reminiscent of the movie called Cool Runnings (1993) . Both stories even happened at the same winter olympic games but Cool Runnings was actually quite funny and entertaining picture while Eddie the Eagle isn’t.
Yeah, the nickname isn’t derived from how far he managed to jump
