The film tells the story of the identical twin gangsters Reggie and Ronnie Kray, two of the most notorious criminals in British history, and their organised crime empire in the East End of London during the 1960s.
A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all - and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he'll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller). Written by
Well done, even though the title of the film suggests otherwise.
Burnt tells the story of a chef named, Adam Jones(Bradley Cooper). During his youth, Adam Jones reached the pinnacle of his cooking career. However, he ruins his career, due to his arrogant behavior & addiction to alcohol & drugs. Adam Jones gets his act together & returns to London. Here, he is determined to redeem himself by taking over a top restaurant & earning three Michelin stars.
Burnt is a great film. The professional kitchen environment has been depicted accurately. All the food in the movie looks delicious. The meticulous preparation & presentation of all the dishes make them look mouth watering. After watching this film, you will feel like eating at a fine dining restaurant. This film is very similar to Chef(2014) but, I like Burnt better. There are a few elements of comedy in the movie but, it is primarily a drama. Bradley Cooper is outstanding as Adam Jones. Cooper portrays the chef's vulnerability, aggression & attention to detail, flawlessly. Sienna Miller is brilliant as Helene. Daniel Bruhl is superb as Tony. Riccardo Scamarcio is effective as Max. Omar Sy is great as Michel. Sam Keeley is good as David. Matthew Rhys is awesome as Reece. Emma Thompson is spectacular as Dr. Rosshilde. Alicia Vikander is impressive as Anne Marie. Burnt is a must watch for all foodies & aspiring chefs. Go feast your eyes on some delectable food!
