Movie Review : Non-Stop

image

Non-Stop is a suspense thriller that starts with a so called highjack of a flight. … but the fun part was the blame of highjack was on an Air Marshal (Liam Neeson) who was on board the flight that time!

The movie revolves around the quest of this Air Marshal trying to find the real highjacker who was threatening to kill a passenger on board every 20 min.

Absolutely gripping suspense right till the end!  You may keep guessing the real highjacker right till the end. .. Coz there are many characters that may seem to be one.

Liam Neeson, has done a very good job as an Air Marshal… To be honest, he looks pretty old in this movie. But, after the Taken movie series, you are kind of use to seeing him in such roles:) Undercover cop..retired police officer or the latest Air Marshal:)

All in all,  good movie. .. definitely once a watch. I would give this movie a 4/5 star rating.. Just Coz of its gripping storyline.

Enjoy the movie!

Movie Review : Jobs

image

STEVE JOBS.. the man who changed the world. ..the man who dared to think differently. . The man who made people want things that they never knew existed! And last but not the least. .in my opinion, the makeup artist or beautician or designer of technology.

This man knew how to beautify a product. .he had the knack of making his products stand out from the lot.

I was super excited when I heard that a movie was being made on The Steve Jobs! My expectations were sky rocketing. .but then. ..won’t they?  It’s Steve Jobs your taking about!

Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs has done an outstanding job!  His looks, his smile,  those idea striking eyes & the walk of the legend. ..he got it all right!  It actually shows the amount of effort Ashton Kutcher has put in to play this role.  All other characters are also well played.

The background score in the movie is also nice. However,  i was left a bit disappointed. I thought the story was a bit weak. There were so many things that I would have loved to see in the movie. ..like Steve’s India visit. .what were his thoughts then. .his emotional turmoil when he got cancer.. how he turnaround Apple after coming onboard again… how he was a changed personality etc. The movie captures his arrogance, his passion for his work etc well but I felt something was missing.

Steve Jobs has given some outstanding speeches in the past. .they could have used those a bit more. The legendary video where his designed computer introduces its owner I.e Steve Jobs was also not used. ..I mean, I just felt a gap..I wanted to see more facets of Jobs.

Overall,  for Ashton’s performance I would give him 5/5. But, for movie per se, I would give it a 2.5-3/5.

Man of Steel – Movie review

Hey friends,

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday. . Weekends mean movies… the most awaited Superman movie #ManofSteel released this weekend.

image

I was super excited to be watching it today. But was a bit disappointed 😦

I would say I expected more. I thought Henry Cavill suited the bill perfectly as Superman. .. but was under utilized.

The first half of the movie was spent on the origin of Superman and shows the struggle Henry goes through as child growing up with his powers. Was pretty stretched I would say.

Second half of the movie is when you actually see him as Superman. However, I was missing the Superman in action. Though the second part has action scenes. . They felt more like video game action scenes to me. Didnt quite enjoy them. General Zod gets killed with a mere neck twist! They spent nearly half an hour breaking glass and buildings fighting and he dies with a neck twist!! That was disappointing.

So, overall I would rate the movie as 2.5 stars…but would definately want to see Henry Cavill in next Superman movie with a strong story showcasing the qualities he possesses.

Have fun guys. ..enjoy your weekend:)
