Deadline delivers satisfying endorphin driven entertainment from start to finish.
Entertainment That Satisfies
I usually bore within the first 15 minutes of most movies from most genres , no doubt a by- product of being a movie addict. While I am always hopeful to be entertained, I am usually left wanting more -- like when you can't have that last bite of your ice cream cone.
But in this case, Deadline left me satiated. In fact, I was annoyed that I wasn't able to stop watching in order to catch up on my paperwork as I often do while watching movies.
Deadline fixated my whole attention span from start to finish. It was a bizarre, thought- provoking and very entertaining movie. To box it only into a single 'horror' genre is almost negligent. Deadline also delivers solid elements of: crime drama, suspense thriller, social commentaries regarding the homeless, drug lords/terrorists, prostitution, police corruption, drug addiction, animal rights, all interlaced within sexy romantic interludes and very cool special effects.
I couldn't even accurately describe this movie to my friends so I simply told them to watch it. I promised that Deadline would deliver full entertainment value.
To me, 'entertainment' should be the core objective of any movie. An entertaining movie can skillfully transport you into another world so that you don't even remember that you have work to finish, bills to pay, and worries to stress over.
Truly entertaining movies offer us the relief and freedom from our everyday lives and worries --- and I believe most of us need and appreciate that.
When a movie can offer me the level of escapism that stimulates my brain and generates endorphins, I not only get that last bite of the ice cream cone, I get the whole enchilada!
