Horror and Sci-Fi movie fan. I rate most movies tough but I will like 1 rated movies.
Way too much talking in this one. Trim about an hour and 20 minutes of conversation and this may have been better, but I really struggled to follow the story.
Rami Malek failed horribly in this one. I couldn't understand a word he said. Throw in the mumbling and all the accents I really needed subtitles on.
A few bright spots:
Ana de Armas.
Naomie Harris who I love was again vastly underutilized.
Coline Defaud as the young gal in…
I am a huge Saw fan no matter how crazy insane and convoluted the series gets.
Traps did not disappoint but they needed to be handled a touch slower so the tension and fear could be ratcheted up.
EFX were solid.
The story was a bit weak and Rock's character was ridiculously lame. The hate and unhealthy working environment would not have lasted a week in a normal work environment.
A new Jigsaw master is back.
A note to writers…
This remake actually works. I was prepared to dislike it as I really enjoyed the original with Noomi Rapace, but Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig did an amazing job. Loaded with some great actors this version did a very nice job of pacing. A brutal thriller, that has some very graphic elements attached to it. I loved the Bryan Ferry song that ran at the end of the credits, "Is Your Love Strong Enough". I originally heard that in Legend and it is a fantastic song.
I love April Fool's Day.
This movie has a creepy feel about it.
Light on gore, there is a ton of suspense.
Deborah Foreman invites a bunch of college friends to her remote island mansion, where they are constantly playing jokes on each other until the attendees begin to disappear.
Amy Steel and Deborah Goodrich (who really heats up the screen whenever she was on it) are the best.
The end is great.
