Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. This film absolutely nailed that. Despite simple plot, characters, throughout the story telling it become something more and more.
It also very well done in term of presentation, when character is angry you felt that, when character is sad you felt that despite lacking in character progress or build up you still able to relate.
When the film end it left you with so much though and brilliantly it open to many interpretation. Brilliant movie but might no be for everyone.
This is your typical asylum horror film. I'm going in expecting as much and it delivered as I expected.
The introduction was pretty much typical, simple and questionable in term of how much sense it make. Pretty much you will say "really?" Compare to most of the horror film, it wasn't that bad, to be honest. Introduction, rarely making any sense anyway.
The build up or the mystery was good, I mean it does make me looking forward to the conclusion because it was well done. The twist, the reveal all of that get my thinking "okay, this interesting".
The mystery in someway manage to help substitute the horror or the lack thereof. For it to be a horror film, for me the horror in this film isn't that noticeable. I'm hate stupid jump scare, or dumb scare but for horror film that still better compare to nothing at all. This film lack that, I can't remember myself to be really scare most of the jump scare is predictable.
I would say this is a mystery film and not so much horror.
One thing that really kills the mystery is the conclusion. After the credit roll, I was like "what?". For me the conclusion is lazy, it could have done better to wrap the mystery because it was good. Overall the film is borderline fair.
I was laughing my ass off throughout this movie. It wasn't dumb movie either. It was well written, the acting just superb especially Angourie Rice, she deserve an award for her performance.
I didn't expect Russel Crowe and Ryan Gosling to just click like that but the chemistry between this two just begging for more.
Overall fun and clever movie but don't expect much on mystery part. I don't think they try to do much about it either.
Last time I watched JK movie was Skiptrace and it was okay. This one though a bit better, totally makin fun of Japanese Army.
I was laughing way more that I expected and overall it was fun experience. Story and character is simple enough not too shine nor dull.
Fun movie, dumb but fun.
The world is gorgeous for its time, surely aged compared to today especially the product design. It would be interesting to see how the original movie made by inspiration of Apple III compared with the sequel when we have iMac.
Can't say much about the story though, it just boring. None of the character in anyway stand out. You watch this for the idea and the world not the story itself.
