The Great Gatsby was... just okay. It wasn't a spectacular as it was made out to be. It wasn't the drama I had hoped for. But it was a okay movie nonetheless.
Before I say any more, I have not read the Fitzgerald classic.
The beginning of the film is rather dull. Tobey Maguire's character, which the entire first third of the film focuses on, is dull, uninspired, and just a bore to watch.
The climax and conclusion, however, made…
Best action film since the 80's, bar none. Covered the the four F's like a champ. Fun as hell. Fuck yes. Holy fuck. Freaking awesome.
Had the perfect cheesy one-liners delivered by all the masters. Each of those masters were constantly making fun of each others' films. Chuck Norris is an even bigger legend today than he was yesterday. Overall, I have not had that much fun in a movie theater in years. Even the idiot woman clapping every time something great happened was bearable while watching this.
