The Hangover Part III

Wed, 06/12/2013 - 15:37 -- Anonymous (not verified)

The franchise started with such promise: a fresh idea, lots of laughs, and almost $500 million at the box office. Part II served up refried ideas, fewer laughs, but enough revenue to make Part III a certainty. Now, the trilogy concludes with a movie that can’t decide what it wants to be: a buddy comedy, a dark crime caper, a road-trip, a chase epic? Maybe Three Men and a Psycho?

Imagine a time when every day is the 4th of July and every night is New Year’s Eve. Imagine a place filled with manic energy and garish opulence. Welcome to the first half of The Great Gatsby. This is really a story in two parts – one fueled by grand decadence, one told on a more human scale.

Here is a quote from this film, spoken by Tom Cruise’s character, Jack Harper. It gives you an idea of what we’re dealing with: “If we have souls, they're made of the love we share. Undimmed by time, unbound by death.”

Olympus Has Fallen

The plot is a bit preposterous and some of the violence is way, way over the top, but this is actually a well made, if copycat movie. It will remind you of so many others – the original Die Hard comes to mind – but the movie does get you thinking about the kind of decisions the President (or, in this case, the ‘acting President’) has to make – and for the first time in a very long time, I actually liked Gerard Butler in a role.

Like the paintings Pierre-Auguste Renoir created, this is a movie filled with visual splendor.
