Criminal heist drama widows accompanied by the enthusiastic reactions of American critics, but personally, the image Steve McQueen did not belong to my favorite this year. But McQueen has already established himself as an experienced and filmmaker, so I was just curious or did not do foreign reactions.
Hope for a quality experience was also enhanced by excellent actors and the fact that Gillian Flynn, who wrote a book and then a script for the excellent crimes Gone Girl or the big Sharp Objects series of HBO production.
The four criminals Henry (Liam Neeson), Carlos (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), Florek (Jon Bernthal) and Jimmy (Coburn Goss) try to steal a big package of money, but the plan is broken and the police are going to shoot all the men. Their wives find out that their precious half-payers have significant debts to dangerous people. And of course they want the money back.
Veronica (Viola Davis), wife of Henry, decides to complete what her husband has begun and begins to plan a big robbery based on his remarks. Other widows include Linda (Michelle Rodriguez) and Alice (Elizabeth Debicki). However, these women are no native criminals, and their plan may be mixed as a short-card every minute.
This is probably the most basic storyboard you just know before going to the movies. I recommend avoiding some more detailed descriptions, as the film itself is rich in several action requests. So I did not walk around the hot slurry: yes, the widow succeeded, and Steve McQueen delivered a snapshot that he would not have missed in the movie.
It is true that the baseline is not revealing, and we have seen it (or its variant) several times in hottest movies. McQueen and Flynn are more aware of this and narrative skeleton they use as the basis for psychological drama, where they explore issues of sadness, racism, sexism or political intrigue. The general feminist subtitle is also significant.
Together this is a very dynamic mix that will be interesting to you ever since the great opening scene of failed robbery. Furthermore, the film is absolutely perfect and technically it can be criticized very little.
In particular, the original camera, cut and music by Hans Zimmer is worth seeing. The whole story, including characters, is heavily written and Gillian Flynn confirms his talent in screenwriting.
Viola Davis largely steals the movie for himself, but Rodriguez and Debicki do not smile either. He will always enjoy the great Liam Neeson (but in a minor role), excellent Colin Farrell as an ambitious politician, veteran Robert Duvall as his racist father and Daniel Kaluuya in the grateful role of the sadistic gangster.
I have to say that I most likely liked the first two thirds, where the central female heroes are dating and planning robbery, and we look at Farrell's character. Although there are no action scenes here, thanks to great actors, intelligent scenario and dialogue, these moments are great and I enjoyed them very well.
In the last third, history has come to me too fast. The actual itself is good and gently shot, but I felt it was even easier to scream. I also enjoyed occasional humor (often because the main heroes do not know how to "go" in the crime scene so they must be quickly perfected in shooting or driving).
In short, everything is in place and everything works just as it is and what the creators wanted. McQueen's image is intelligent, dynamic, lacking quality dialogues and great actors. So why do not I give more than eight points of ten?
To tell you the truth, I do not know. Perhaps because some of the breaks of history came to me a bit or because of it or because, despite all the good, I did not feel that McQueen really had fired me. It also came to me that he had taken several interesting themes, but because of the pictures he could not do anything to a hundred percent.
Nevertheless, it is an honest work and a high-grade crime that artificially blends elements of heist thriller and psychological drama. I suggest that this may be something for some spectators (as you can see in colleagues). McQueen did not deliver any reported Danny's eleventh, but basically a very sad movie with a tragic heart.
However, I personally liked the widow and decided to advise them about the films that should be noted. I'm very happy to repeat the photo again.
