Adapted from James Joyce's Ulysses, Bloom is the enthralling story of June 16th, 1904 and a gateway into the consiousness of its three main characters: Stephen Dedalus, Molly Bloom and the extraordinary Leopold Bloom.
On New Year's Eve 1944, American pilot Mike Clarke inadvertently bets Al Capone's nephew $10,000.00 that he can shoot down five enemy aircraft. Later, forced to land near a remote village in Ireland after running out of fuel, Mike learns that he is cut off from the rest of the world with no way to rejoin the war and shoot down his fifth plane, which is the only way he can win the bet and save his own life. With nowhere to go, he eventually befriends the colorful villagers and meets a fiery red-head named Maggie who shows this pilot that combat can take place on the ground just as well as in the air. It doesn't take long for Mike and Maggie to grow close as she helps him figure out how to win his bet while winning her heart in the process. Written by
I was almost dissuaded from watching this because of the mediocre reviews, even though the plot sounded good, in an off-beat kind of way. Well, the wife and I watched it and enjoyed it quite a bit. It was very refreshing and the characterizations were all very well done. Sure, it may be made only a level above the old Hogan's Heros TV show, but then I enjoyed that, as well. If you (as I) are tired off all the bloody shoot'em ups, gravity defying car chases, and uber explosions, then give this small movie a view. It is not big budget, but all the acting and production values are good. And all the people are warm and genuine.
