Acrimony (2018)
31 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

Yes, I know. Tyler Perry films kind of suck. I liked one or two here and there but by no means were they films that I would see myself going back to or giving an afterthought to. I didn't see any trailers for Acrimony and decided it was best to go in blind and not knowing thing. I am glad I did, although I don't think it would have had an effect on my opinion of the film. The film boasts a powerhouse performance from Taraji P. Henson and was actually a very entertaining time.

Melinda (Henson) narrates the story of her snake of an ex-husband. We see her young days as she meets Robert, her future husband. He seems to be a con artist and even cheats on her, yet despite her sisters' objections and her own anger she gets back with him. Fast forward, 18 or so years he is still a deadbeat with no job and only seems to cost her money as he focuses on one project that has been his only drive for decades. She also starts thinking that he may be cheating again and must assess the tolls that he is taking on her.

I tried very hard to summarize a general but vague plot for the film because the film has many twists and turns and its best to just experience them. Character's turn on their heads and you have no idea whose side you are on. Who is even good or bad? Finally, Perry gives me a film I felt very satisfied with and one I felt deserves praise. Some of the events may seem illogical but are there any limits to crazy? Its insane, and at times over the top but its the kind of theater entertainment I needed with heavy drama and thrills.

Taraji is utilized well here, which is good. I feel like Proud Mary really failed her talents and attempt to branch into a bad ass hero type role but she puts in a good performance here nonetheless. She's likable and then unlikable, she thrives in the role. I'm still not sure if its because the film is fresh on my mind. I mean, the personal rating and reflection of the film may go down with time but for now I'm impressed that Tyler Perry was able to write and direct a wholly entertaining film.

7/10
