An average movie

Posted : 5 years, 7 months ago on 26 December 2013 12:02

With ‘The Shawshank Redemption’, even though almost no one saw it when it was released, we pretty much all agreed afterwards that it was a great flick. The next time around, Frank Darabont made ‘The Green Mile’, another Stephen King tale, and this time, not only it was a critical success but also a smash hit at the box-office. So, you would think that at this point Darabont's career would be launch for good but, then, he made this flick starring Jim Carrey. Once again, it was barely seen when released but, this time, it didn’t get much love from the critics either. I mean, there was a (rather small) club of people like Roger Ebert who really liked it but the majority didn’t care much for the whole thing. To be honest, it is not a bad movie at all, the directing is solid, Jim Carrey is always compelling in more dramatic roles and you could feel that there was some ambition behind this project. Still, somehow, the story was not really fascinating, the characters were too bland and I had a hard time to care about the whole thing. To conclude, even though it is a failure, it remains an intriguing picture and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Frank Darabont’s work.

Extreeeemely Boring

This was the worst Jim Carey film I have ever seen. It looked good when i borrowed it, but after about 30 minutes i just couldn't bear to watch it anymore!

Very, very, very slow starting and boring, the plot was stupid and it just didn't make any sense! Definitely wouldn't recommend this to anyone - from my point of view it was a complete waste of time. one of the most boring movies! in case you didn't get the point-it was boring!
