A good movie

Since I’m a huge fan of Sean Penn and since this movie was very well received, I had some pretty huge expectations about it. Unfortunately, to be honest, I thought it was slightly disappointing. I mean, it was pretty good, that’s for sure, but somehow, I was expecting more from it. First of all, Sean Penn was just brilliant. He is definitely one of my favorite actors and he did a great job in... read more

“Since I’m a huge fan of Sean Penn and since this movie was very well received, I had some pretty huge expectations about it. Unfortunately, to be honest, I thought it was slightly disappointing. I mean, it was pretty good, that’s for sure, but somehow, I was expecting more from it. First of all, Sean Penn was just brilliant. He is definitely one of my favorite actors and he did a great job in this movie, as usual. And that might have been the issue here. Indeed, except for Penn’s awesome performance, this movie didn’t have much to offer in my opinion. Take for example Naomi Watts. Eventually, she will make 2 more movies with Sean Penn (see also ’21 grams’ and ‘Fair Game’) but this time, she didn’t have much to do, just like Don Cheadle.

"Watched 21.8 ---------- Elokuva kertoo Sam Bickestä (Penn), tavallisesta tallaajasta, jonka elämä on nyt alamäessä. Avioeron myötä hän on menettänyt sekä perheensä että talonsa, ja työpaikan pomokin on pelkkä valehteleva kusipää. Pikkuhiljaa Bicke alkaa tajuta, että koko yhteiskunta perustuu pelkkiin valheisiin, eikä tavallisia ihmisiä arvosteta tarpeeksi. Niinpä hän hoksaa keinon, jolla saada koko homma oikeille raiteille. Penn vetää sympaattisen roolin, johon on helppo "

"Samuel J. Bicke (Sean Penn) é um homem desempregado e recém-divorciado. O ano é 1974 e, após muito pensar, ele chega à conclusão de que o culpado por todos os seus problemas, inclusive os de relacionamento, é o governo dos Estados Unidos, mais exatamente o presidente Richard Nixon. Frustrado e sem esperança, Samuel decide então planejar o assassinato de Nixon como forma de se vingar. "
