My biggest complaint is the choice to go black and white, but a really weird looking black and white. It almost looks like it was shot on a cellphone. It’s really distracting from trying to actually get into the movie. It was just a really bad choice in my opinion. I like pretty much everything Antoine Fuqua has ever made. Unfortunately, this is probably meant to be the most profound work he has ever done, and it’s just not. It’s really well made, and well acted, and technically proficient. It just doesn’t have the impact that I think it’s meant to have, which is disappointing. Plus, Ben Foster is a great actor, but I think he needs to move on from being the go to bad guy. However, the weird choice of the strange looking black and white, or whatever it is I was looking at was what really took me out of the experience the most. Oh well, overall it wasn’t bad.
Unfortunately I was unable to deeply connect to the characters emotionally. Although the cinematography was excellent, I felt that the movie relied too heavily on it and it wasn’t enough to carry the movie. I feel that it was the script/story that felt too simplified. It felt rushed and edited to pieces….and just not thorough enough.
The score was mediocre at best. Nothing new to help us connect.
Top notch acting here, but lack of full character exploration (again lack of good script) feels like a huge injustice.
It did make me want to find out more about this particular American Hero tho.
