This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Went to the movies looking for something light as a much needed pick-me-up. But you know you're in a bad way when you wind up crying over a cartoon kid finally getting his fangs.
Sometimes it felt like there were 3 different movies rolled into one, which was distracting and made it drag a little towards the end, but the animation was stunning at times(made me not feel bad for forking over the extra money to make the closer 3D timeslot) and some of the humor is clever and got an honest laugh out of me.
Jake Gyllenhaal plays a sociopath who has access to entirely too much internet and apparently also to my late grandfather's wardrobe. Yet despite making me about 30 different types of uncomfortable for the entire duration, Nightcrawler still falls short of anything really spectacularly gritty, depraved, or ultimately interesting.
Whatever, I love this movie. And although I'm sure my own father would try his best to rescue me, I'd like to officially request that Liam Neeson be the one assigned to come after me if I ever get kidnapped and sold into human trafficking. He seems to know his way around an International kidnapping, whereas my dad knows his way around Pawn Stars and getting the best deals on deli meats.
