I was looking forward to this film going into it, based on a highly entertaining book, but ultimately it was just okay.
Well shot and directed, Daniel Radcliffe is the best thing about it, but it lacked the punch and dark humour of the novel. Juno Temple’s character feels painfully underwritten, as do most of the 2nd tier characters. The worst part is it takes itself way too seriously for such a silly premise. There is some destructive chaotic fun, but not enough of it. The creature design for the finale is very cool, then the film just sort of stops rather than giving a satisfying wrap up.
Could have, should have been much better, maybe that’s my fault because I was expecting more. Still watchable, even if not memorable.
Really good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.
Trigger warning: rape and murder.
It’s in the premise, but certain information sources hide some things more than others.
Some movies are hurt by trying to be too many things, but this finds a wonderful balance between a murder mystery and religiously mythical. I think it is that they compliment each other. Regardless of why Daniel Radcliffe’s character has been imbued with horns, the powers he gains serve toward revealing the mystery. I never felt like there was a dead spot where the story wasn’t moving forward or we were re-hashing all the details: they do a good job of keeping the relevant information at the fore front and refreshing the information on pace.
Why it is a great premise, it is awfully sad one, but I do feel it helps humanize Daniel Radcliffe almost immediately, and he retains his like-ability throughout the film just for the shear insanity of his situation.
It is also a lot of fun to see how the power of the horns affect the different townsfolk.
Gets The Tone Of The Book Wrong, But Still Manages Respectability
In terms of adapting Joe Hill’s book onto the big screen, there are a number of things that go right for “Horns”. Sadly, this effort also does not seem to realize what the tone of the novel is all about, rendering it an adequate film and no more.
For a basic plot summary, “Horns” tells the story of Ig Parrish (Daniel Radcliffe), who wakes up one morning after a wicked bender with horns growing out of his head. Not only that, but these horns seem to have the power to influence other people based on Ig’s conversations with them. Suspected in the recent death of longtime girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple), Ig tries to put his life back together and reckon with his new protuberances at the same time. Interactions with best friend Lee (Mix Minghella) & brother Terry (Joe Anderson) help start connecting the dots as to what actually happened to Merrin.
The main problem with this Alexandre Aja-directed flick is that it doesn’t understand that Hill’s novel isn’t really about the horns. I understand that they are obviously the visual standout of the story, and perhaps work better on the big screen than even in print, but they are not the driving force of the story. Rather, Hill constructs a story where the horns are little more than the impetus for Ig to figure out his shady past and move forward.
In this adaptation, however, it is very clear that Ig’s interactions with the horns are paramount, and the character interactions are thrown in as best they can be. This leads to a film that technically adapts the nuts-and-bolts of Hill’s novel pretty well, but loses most of its literary soul, if you will, in the process. Whereas the story should be absolutely brimming with deep character relationships and interesting observations, it instead is rather bland on that front because the focus is on the visual gags or off-beat humor.
Also, I’d only go so far as to call the acting in this one “so-so”. Sometimes, Radcliffe nails the role (especially when he is in a drunken stupor). Other times, however, he seems far too goofy to be taken seriously. The auxiliary cast is okay, but again not really given much room to shine because the whole thing is built away from them.
I understand why this film was made in this particular fashion (it’s the easiest way to do it), but I wish it would have built from the characters outward instead. Hill’s novel is one of my favorites of all-time, and I wish this film could have given it a better cinematic reputation instead of a solid “meh”.
A very good movie with a great “horny” idea
Soon after being accused of murdering the love of his life, Ig grows a “lovely” pair of devilish horns, which grant him an interesting ability. He’s able to make every person tell his most hidden and cruel desires and thoughts, while being able to persuade them into doing something they wouldn’t have thought before (or have courage to do). By using his “gift”, he sets out to uncover the identity of the true killer and punish him for his terrible deed.
It’s a dark and thrilling story, which brings an interesting feat into the movie’s equation, the horns. They transform a normal investigation into something more deep and troubling, fact which is featured in great and explicit details. It’s complex and unpredictable, making you lust for its conclusive finale, which thankfully, explains everything and does some much needed justice. It had a bit of monotony and some boring moments but overall it managed to create a bleak atmosphere in which its story can freely unravel. A very good movie.
