Holy awesome blockbuster, Batman!
Okay, all Robin jokes aside, this movie kicked butt! At times it seemed a little slow, but it was definitely killer! There were plot twists that I had no idea coming (seriously, you will freak at certain points), the emotion was believable, and the storyline was superb (there were things I wouldn’t have done, but I’m still an amateur by comparison. And besides, how many movies make you rethink how you’ll write your novel, which I’m considering doing?).
The one thing I did not care for was the girl two rows below me and one to the right who kept turning her phone on and lighting up the theater near the end of the film. Girl, it’s a movie theater. Your boyfriend can wait, and if you want to check the time, buy a watch.
I rate this movie a 4.5 out of 5 for a job well done.
Oh, fun fact: you know that chant they do in the film that the guy from the trailer translates as “Rise”? Well, I did a little digging, it’s actually Moroccan Arabic and it means “he rises”. Close enough translation, but still makes more sense in context.
