This movie was brilliant – I’m pretty sure the “book is better than the movie” as most literature enthusiasts would exclaim. Well since I have a passion for actually visiting the silver screen, I had chose to watch it instead, and bruh…..
The following are some thoughts on the film:
- Ben Affleck: Good job man! – He really sold the sharp, yet unreadable character that was portrayed…he really followed through on this film. Which was surprising, because since Gigli – i lost all hope in Benny.
- Rosamund Pike: Beautiful and brilliant. Her voice, narrating…was soothing and sincere. She really sold every aspect of “Amy”. And when I say EVERY aspect – I mean all points. You’ll have to see the movie to know what I mean by that.
- Tyler Perry: Most people would call me as a Tyler-hater…because I am. Period. No hiding that…and I have to admit, when i saw his face – utter disappointment and contentment rose in my soul…but this man delivered. He played a very charming lawyer and he was 777! – ALL MONEY!
- The Story: The writer pulled the viewers one way…yanked us the other way…put us in a place of suspense…shocked us..and then left us (or at least me) with an unsettle d feeling in the pit of my stomach as the credits rolled. I would love to see this movie again.
If I had a rating system, I would give this movie all of whatever I had to give.
Bottom line up front: go see it.
