What a movie! Phew!
My readers will find it difficult to believe it but I went to see it so that I can write a blog post. Someone very dear to me texted me earlier this morning as to why I have not been blogging. I responded that my brain had gone to sleep but I thought to myself that I should get back to blogging and might as well do it with a review of a movie.
That there was a movie running with Keanu Reeves starring in it made it even more attractive a proposition. And with two of my friends agreeing to spend a few hours with some male bonding, we went for a matinee show and winded down with some great high tea in great ambience.
This movie is what my friend Chuck calls a Pop Corn Movie. A very weak story made to come alive with nothing but clever photography and mindless violence, nowadays called as action. One expects the hero to win against all odds and he does but does it while keeping the viewer’s eyes pealed and his bottom glued to the seat. If you can afford to have your adrenalin pumping non stop for about a hundred minutes, this movie is worth a dekho. In fact that the excitement lasts only for about that much is a great plus point which pushes my rating for it from three to [rating=4].
