A good movie

That's another movie that I wanted to watch for so many years. First of all, even if I probably should have, I have to admit that I haven't read yet the classic novel written by John Steinbeck. Concerning Gary Sinise, like other actors such as Vin Diesel, Sam Neill or Billy Bob Thornton, he actually launched his career by directing a few movies before focusing solely on acting. Coming back to our main feature, to be honest, even though it was a decent story with a strong performance by John Malkovich, I thought it was actually rather predictable. I mean, you can guess every the dramatic event occurring miles ahead and, as a result, I have to admit that I wasn't exactly blown away. Eventually, what really sold was its ending, because it was so bleak, so heartbreaking and, in the contrary to the rest of the movie, it actually took me by surprise. I mean, when I think about it, it really made sense but I was expected that Lennie and George would have simply run away, like they always did but, instead, Steinbeck chose such a more powerful way to end his tale which I won't forget for quite some time. Anyway, to conclude, it was a really solid drama and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
