The Wrestler (2008)
A touching film
I was touched by this film, I got into the character and felt sad for Randy seeing this is the way his life turn out. I felt almost the same way as I did after watching Raging Bull. I thought all the actors did a great job and was happy with the way their stories turned out. This isn't that living happily ever after, this was a real life believable story, and I was content with this. I found the final scene captivating, I took off my hat and leaned in to capture every aspect of the final moments of the match.
Spoilers The ending caught me off guard in a few ways. When the daughter hated him again I was surprised to not see the story line finished but I felt this was for the best, I also appreciated when Cassidy came back at the end to apologize as well. I didn't mind not seeing the end of the match. I kinda liked not knowing what happened after he flew off screen. However one change instead of the quick audio cut out, there should have been an audio fade out. It wouldn't have ruined anything, just the crowd cheering then getting slowly getting quite...silence...cue the boss...roll credits.
Bravo to everyone who worked on this film.
Why do people like this movie?
This movie was almost as bad as Spider-Man 3. What a disappointing summer for movies (besides Borne 3) While watching this movie i was confused, was it suppose to be an action film? Cause the action was difficult to follow when they were in the city. The "humor" was uncalled for when it was presented. The whole government agency was alright at first then they turned into a bunch of idiots that had t-shirts made. That what my high school sports team did. The love story was the worst i've seen since Star Wars episode 2, simply dreadful. The rest of the dialog was bad, the movie also featured horrible lines that just highlighted the lack of acting talent Michael bay picked.
The worst part was the blatant ads through out the movie, cars, cellphones, clothes, and drinks were thrown in your face the entire time. The shot would start out on the GM symbol then after 30 secs span out to see the cars only to focus of the Chevy symbol next. I would have walked out and gotten my money back but my friend drove me so i had no where to go....
...Michael Bay is making the sequel, both should be stopped from ever seeing the light of day
