An average movie

Posted : 2 years, 2 months ago on 2 January 2017 12:39

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and maybe I should give it a 2nd chance at some point. Well, even though this movie definitely has a solid reputation, I can’t say it completely worked for me. Basically, in my opinion, it was just another typical dramatic performance by Robin Williams. Indeed, ever since his performance in ‘Dead Poets Society’, Williams would keep showing up in such dramas from time to time. The problem is that, in my opinion, ‘Dead Poets Society’ must be one of the most overrated movies ever made and I thought that Robin Williams was only decent at best in this movie. For this movie, he gave his usual cheesy performance and, while it was again rather watchable, it didn’t really impress me. On the other hand, Robert De Niro was still at the top of his game at the time and he gave here another impressive and really intense performance. Furthermore, I have to admit that the story was actually quite fascinating, it’s just that I didn’t care much for the approach they choose to handle it. Anyway, to conclude, even though it didn’t completely work for me, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
