Hail, Caesar! (2016)
Genre: Comedy, Mystery
I was so excited for this film and waited in anticipation as the trailers made this film seem awesome. I can’t lie, I was majorly disappointed. Comedy…yes it is. Was it my kind of comedy? I really don’t know. There were truly amazing elements in this film and parts of it made me laugh. I loved the Channing Tatum’s Tap dance and I did like seeing each individual character’s movie, making a joke on the Classic films of the 50’s 🙂 . I also loved the character of Hobie Doyle (Alden Ehrenreich) and Burt Gurney (Channing Tatum) who were Amazing 😀 ! Literally, every scene Hobie was in was made better by his character 🙂 . The main problem with this film was the trailer. It gave a different impression of what this film was going to be like for me. The Narrative never really took off. I felt like I was waiting throughout while they showed me odd scenes (and not truly exciting ones) that didn’t really feel complete. By the time the film ended I was not satisfied. I guess I expected a build up in a story, climax and satisfying ending but maybe I was expecting too much. I guess I wasn’t entirely bored so it is probably alright but I was disappointed. Plus certain “Stars” in this movie only got shown for what it felt like 5 minutes 😛 Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 2.5 Stars out of 5!
