It's all a matter of perspective
15 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I was skeptical at first thinking that having two film that running for around 2 hours each telling the same story would get tedious and boring fast. Well I had nothing to worry about these films can stand apart and still be complete stories I started off watching him which was all round well acted with James Mcavoy and Bill Hader being the best performance of the film. I chose to then watch Her after watching him because I felt like I only go half of the story. Overall these two film could stand alone and I enjoyed them for the majority of the time I was watching them. I think both of there films make the point that there isn't always clear right and wrong but that its all just a matter of perspective.

Him was by far my favorite although the first 20 minutes dragged one you get to know the charters and really care about them you really start to enjoy the film. I loved the sciences with James Mcavoy and Bill Hader I found them really funny. I felt the short 1hour and 30 minute runtime was a perfect amount of time for this film. The cinematography, editing and directing seemed to have been done well.


Her seems like a completely different film with a slower pace I didn't enjoy her as much as I enjoyed watching him although it was equally well acted. I think the best thing about this film is the part where James Mcavoy and Jessica Chastain's charters where together because we never quite know who is actually telling the event as they happened. I also felt like Her answered a lot of the questions I had at the end of Him. If you enjoy Him i recommend watching Her.
