“Kimmy, you’re the firework!”
The most controversial movie of 2014, that’s enough to describe The Interview. But, was the movie worth the controversy?
It’s somewhat yes; it’s controversial ’cause it pictures how two hardhead American partners attempt to murder North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un in an interview and, in the end, crafts a good, decent humor. Yet, it’s worth no controversy for being a dangerous attempt to integrity—in the end, it’s just some typical slapstick bravura.
With super entertaining performance by James Franco and Seth Rogen in their North Korean rove. The Interview makes good laughs and a pointless movie at once. Most of the jokes are predictable, perhaps less original, but the two actors know how to exploit them to entertain people.
It’s never being a smart-ass comedy, but it won’t be lack for trying. It has many things to deserve laugh and appreciation, although it’s not a big comedy actually. Compared to last year’s This Is The End or Rogen-Franco’s first collaboration, Pineapple Express, it’s less original and less compelling, but it indeed has more guts than any of the previouses.
VERDICT: The Interview is wacky, tacky, and jokey as it’s harmless to anybody.
