For April 28th- Fast Five

Looking at a large version of this poster, each actor’s size probably corresponds to their relative paycheck amount.

You have probably already made up your mind about this movie.  This writing will either confirm you opinion, or I will be telling you that you are stupid and have bad taste in movies. So, I apologize in advance.

Story/Writing: .5/2

Just about as bland as they come.  Everything seems to be taking place in Brazil recently, so the locale is overused and boring.

Acting: .5/2

I’m not sure if the writing or the acting is to blame, but “The Rock” is a ridiculously cartoonish example of an American world policeman jerk.  The rest of the cast is the normal rainbow of stereotypes.

 

Photography/Set: .5/2

Again, Rio de Janeiro has been seen in multiple media formats over the past few years, so there isn’t a whole lot of ground to break in this area.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

If you throw enough money at this aspect of a movie, it is hard for it to not be fairly spectacular.

Misc: 0/2

I can’t believe there’s going to be another one.  Do the right thing, and don’t go see it.

VERDICT: 3/10
