The novelty of having music and acting choreographed in sync is only really good for the first 10 minutes. After that, the rest of the film is quite mediocre in its plot and acting at times. The plot was never really developed to any great level so you come away from the film...disappointed.
Part of me wants to call this the least cool movie of the year, just because it makes palpable how cool it thinks it is at almost every moment. However, aside from the poor casting of Jon Hamm and Lily James (neither of whom can act), Ansel Elgort does have a certain sexy charm and the character of Baby a gentle sweetness that make the movie enjoyable.
Kind of let down by the hype. Although I have to admit I did not see it in theaters and I deeply regret it. The cast is good, the sound editing and the overall work on the rhythm, the sounds and the music is stellar. It's just that beyond the style, the form, the theme is really ordinary and lacks a little something else to put it above the "cool, speedy thingy". Might be a little harsh.
Wright non sbaglia un colpo e ci regala un altro gioiello,con un lavoro in cui tutto gira,dall action fenomenale alla colonna incredibile,dalla direzione artistica al montaggio disumano. Sale di continuo e non cala mai,la storia d'amore aggiunge quel romantico delizioso e lo scontro finale sembra un western anni '70. Altra perla di un autore strepitoso.
I get 'Nice Guys" 2016 pulp action flashbacks when I caught up with this film. Wright like always, manages to entertain the hell out of me, but unlike his previous efforts, this film is all surface and offers up no turn around for the characters. He try's and fails to offer convincing stakes but it feels like Wright wanted to make an all out bloody action pulpy picture.
Visually attractive, good music but somehow to sappy and cheesy.... Script writingnya sedih banget, bikin w ga percaya ini seorang Edgar Wright yang nulis, nampaknya beliau emang cuma cocok jadi director sajalah. Despite of good and detailed visual dan audio menurut gue film ini sangat generic sekali. Bahkan humornya saja nda asik dan terlalu maksa. Gak banyak yang bisa dikomentari sih, yang pasti saya nda menikmati.
