I just love this film, it’s a superhero but it doesn’t feel like a superhero film. It’s more like an underdog because the character leaves more destruction than he does at saving people. That’s what makes him more lovable because he’s just a mess. He’s a guy with these powers and he doesn’t really know what to do with them, there’s no handbook, he’s just trying his best to deal with the hand he got dealt. He just really doesn’t care either, which makes it a lot more entertaining. This film is just a fantastic action/comedy.
Will Smith is great as usual. I think it’s a film that you hear about and think I can’t imagine it being any good because it’s so random but it works so well. I think it’s my favourite Will Smith role, it’s just so entertaining from start to finish.
Tomorrow I will be reviewing Edward Scissorhands 🙂
