Everything I saw about the movie before I saw the movie pointed to a bold critique of US foreign policy and war politics, so I didn’t expect an action filled nail-biter. It did deliver what I expected, and did so phenomenally. The issues the movie brings up and the things the characters said really, truly couldn’t have been said more openly and directly. As the narrator would have you know, it’s going to fall on deaf ears where it matters the most, granted, but it’s one heck of a catharsis session all the same.
Where the progression of events gets too slow, the brilliant acting comes to the rescue. Pitt’s performance didn’t look to me as smooth and believable as it used to be, but Tilda Swinton and Ben Kingsley blew my mind. With their impeccable accents and spot on mannerisms, it was near impossible to tell they were just actors (save for their very familiar faces). There were a few pretty funny lines, too.
To anyone who doesn’t mind listening to dialogue and watching out for subtle goings-on, this movie is a must, MUST see.
Comedy? Drama? – Both missing from this tribute to idiocy.
The film is approximately 2 hours long.
2 hours of a deadly dull attempt to satirize war and those who lead it. Brad Pitts’ attempt to convey a rigidly martial soldier, a man of inflexible values and honour is both laughable (and not in a funny way) and cringe-worthy.
Pitts’ performance is so over-the-top it actually lands on its feet.
The ‘plot’ – and I use the word loosely – is as puddle deep as the acting. I don’t need constant narration to tell me what going on.
The movie felt like I was watching out-takes, I kept wondering when I’d see something actually happening… right to the end credits.
Poor show all round. Avoid. Pull your own teeth as an alternative.
