Chuck is like Marmite.....you either love it or hate it. I LOVE IT!
A lot of people who watch Chuck forget that they are watching a action/comedy. The people who think that its supposed to be solely comedy will be disappointed because they think they're supposed to be laughing the whole time. These people aren't the fans....
People who get offended by its portrayal of its action/sci-fi side are offended because it doesn't thrill them like most shows like Dexter or Supernatural do. Its not supposed to do that either. These people aren't the fans....
People who are able to see the key factor of this show.... the simple care-free enjoyment that puts a smile on your face when they watch chuck. Who can see behind the unrealistic plot and cliché characters to the amazing morals and ethics that only this type of show can have. People who can just sit back and indulge in the charming epicness of Chuck. These people ARE the fans!
And i am one of them.
If you are a rationalist, don't watch......ever.
But if you have an open-mind and have even a hint of empathy then this is the show for YOU
An Epic Treat For The Eyes And Ears! Don't let it leave the cinema before you see it
Okay so I'll divide this into each quality of the film.
Plot: Slightly Lacking. This is a tricky one considering that there really wasn't that much happening in the book and so it makes it harder for the creators to work on the piece. Books are totally different to movies in the sense that its usually a one person effort, this means that they can focus on other factors if they know the plot is lacking. So its harder for a large film crew because its a much larger product. Would've probably benefited from more of the new interference of magic with muggles rather than just at the beginning.
(7/10) Script: Extremely well balance. Jokes, off-topic parts, sad tones, teen lingo and serious parts all contributed to a well thought out script. (9/10)
Screen play: Locations and character actions were really stuck out well in this movie. Although some scenes were a little bit pro-longed and could have been shortened to allow for a more intense final few scenes. (8/10)
Cinematography: Wow.... I mean Wow! This really just blew me away. Words can't describe how beautiful some of the scenes were in this film. There were times when just wished the movie would pause so that i could look at the incredible set-up and scenery in this film. Times when my focus was just wrenched from the characters to look at something else and then be taken back to them just when we needed to. And one scene that really made me shiver! Its the camera-work that really makes this film succeed. Honestly DelBonnel has got it in the bag! And by that i mean a well deserved Oscar. (10/10)
Score: I really liked Hooper's score myself. Although only really apparent at some points of the film. But personally think this was the best thing to do. Williams score for the first few was nothing short of genius but when you get this far in a series you start to want to look for more. The theme of Harry Potter is already known to everyone whose seen it. Even if Hooper had done an incredibly absorbing score that stole the show, everyone would still probably only remember the one that started the whole thing off! (8.5/10)
Characters: Radcliffe (Harry)was really exceptional in this one. He's matured an awful lot. Really fit into his role, becoming less modest about being so important.
He displayed anger in a much more controlled way than in Order of the Phoenix and Azkaban. We even get to see a completely different side to him which really showed how good an actor he has become!
Watson (Hermione) has also matured very well in this one. Little more desperate as a troubled character. Hormones obviously having an effect with many of people But mostly with her as it makes her the most upset. Her and Harry's bond becomes so more apparent She has also become a fine young actress.
Grint (Ron): Brings great laughs even better acted than ever before! Never went over the top with his antics Able to show how important friendship with Harry is. Gotten used to the fact that his best friend is so famous!
Gambon ( Dumbledore): Finally came to a par with Richard Harris. Truly was the magical old man that everyone loves. Has such an ability to use his character as anything he wanted it to be. In any situation.
Felton (Malfoy):Great part in this film. Sure if he continues his acting career he could very well be a great villain in many many films!
Wright ( Ginny): Captivating! Probably had the most attention from the entire audience Dominance and strength was such a surprise! Sudden love interest a bit too sudden. Should be an even greater delight in the next one.
Id say more about the characters but there's too many to go through
