A good movie

To be honest, the more I think about this movie, the more I believe I should lower my rating. Basically, it has been a while since I have seen it and maybe I should rewatch it to make up my mind. The point is that it was actually based on a rather fascinating true story but, unfortunately, Spielberg decided to make a light comedy from this subject and, as a result, it never really reached its full potential. Eventually, it felt like a minor effort from Steven Spielberg, one of those movies he makes like ‘Always’ or ‘War Horse’ to fill in the gaps between his more ambitious projects (for example, after that, he made ‘War of the Worlds’ which wasn’t really amazing either but, at least, it was a massive blockbuster). On top of that, Tom Hanks gave his usual nice guy act which was fine but it felt like a really safe choice and, with an interesting tale like this one, it would have been more rewarding if they had taken some more risks, something I very oten miss in Steven Spielberg’s work. Still, I had a good time watching it and even though it is obviously a minor effort, I still think it is worth a look, especially if you are interested in Steven Spielberg’s work.
