The Interview Review: GOP Terrorist lost the war
As I watched the events unfold before this movie was released I gazed at it with interest into what it exactly is, with the previews only showing clips here and there, I found it to be really interesting, like what are they going to make with Kim Jong-un and I found it rather a interesting idea. They didn't disappoint at all with those regards, they portrayed the North Koran dictator as a misunderstood leader, who is trying to fill his fathers shoes at the age of 31(probably not true). They spent a great deal of time showing this....
Back to the movie as a whole first though...
The movie has many repeating jokes, and uses them quite often such as honey pot, homophobia of what is and isn't gay, and many "racist" jokes which just end up back firing into the joke tellers face like karma bit them in the behind.
This movie has a lot of profane humor, and it is told like I should laugh at all of them like I am a 13 year old just finding out what sex is. To be honest most of these are just odd and out of place like they are trying to target adults but not adults at the same time, and that doesn't really work well in a movie that has actual nudity. If they released a slightly censored version of the movie like those nude scenes edited out I could understand it a bit more but a few happen at plot points, and future jokes would be ruined..... That is a problem....
The having a introduction that just made me laugh my ass off, literally rolling on the floor laughing not because how off it is but because it had Eminem say something I don't think he would ever say but yes it was actually him. His part wasn't the only part that made me laugh there was several other jokes, all through out the movie that were really funny to me, yes some of them were sexual jokes but they were actually good, while others felt bad and missed like a 13 year old would joke about.
It really is a mixed bag, and many of the childish humor like the pointless chewing off the fingers gag to spray fake blood everywhere, to the constant sex jokes I can't see who this movie would be perfect for, but then again that could be my problem. Maybe it is just trying to target too many people at once, with its topic matter being serious, but being taken out of that serious scope, and joked about it in so many different ways. The whole movie is made to make people laugh, it is one big joke, and you know what it isn't bad, heck I would even go to say I found it to being good, not best movie ever but it is really funny in the end.
Was it worth insane North Korea supporters(possibly North Korea themselves) hacking Sony, and threatening terrorist attacks, Hell no, if anything you Honey-combed I mean potted it for people to watch it more than you will have ever hoped you crazy nut jobs you. You gave the people you attacked more money by doing your actions, and now people are going to watch it just because you tried to censor it out while they still can, because you had to try to ruin comedy for everyone.
Was the movie bad, No, it had legitimate moments that made me laugh, and cry while others just felt odd and out of place. This movie is definitely worth a watch at least once, and only if you are a adult without a stick up your bum.
for those with stick up bum and support GOP:
