GREAT FIRST HELF,THEN MUDDLED,BUT GOOD ENDING
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 30/10/2013 00:06:20
I looked forward to watching this,being a DANNY BOYLE film,but I got frustrated halfway through and though it has a good ending,i wasn't left impressed.
The story is of an art heist,he gets knocked out,can't remember where he put the painring and the other crooks try hypnosis to find the memory and the painting. The first half really works well,with the hypnotist giving you the thought she's up to something,but what?
Then it gets very odd,trying to be INCEPTION,with odd looks into the mind of the crook with the memory loss,the trance scenes become so blurred into the lines of reality it can easily lose it's viewers. I did appreciate the end,where more twists actually explained things and no doublt left a lot of people smiling at this puzzle of movie finally coming together,but that said,it left me thinking of how much I can sell the blu ray for.
For a Danny Boyle movie,this is a huge disappointment. If it kept at the style of the first half and didn't disappear up itself,keeping the end as it is to explain all,then that would've left me satisfied,but this partial mess didn't.
I'm sure the female nudity will please some,but,it is done in a slightly odd way,going on about shaving her lower regions for the reason given.
It's not a bad film,but I have no interest in watching it again and suspect many will feel the same.
Or you could just be left staring at the screen in a bit of a trance.
