So after reading a lot of bad reviews about Alex Cross, I decide to go ahead and see Seven Psychopaths instead.
Hearing lots of good things about this movie, I was looking forward to seeing it for myself.
The Cast was unreal, Sam Rockwell stole the show for me during the movie. He was just off the wall crazy and funny all at once. His character Billy/Jack of Diamonds was pretty well-played by him. Opening scene was hilarious where you saw him walk up and shoot two gangsters waiting to murder there Bosses GF(I promise the only spoiler).
Farrell & Walken both were solid in this movie as well. Harrelson was just his normal funny/crazy role he is used to playing.
The opening scene saw an interesting start of the movie for sure. I really liked how it opened and had me excited for more. But to me the movie was really all over the place. While had moments of just hilarious stuff, it was a bit to over the top for me. It would bounce from one scene to another scene. There were a few scenes that were just hilarious.
1st Scene was with Sam Rockwell & Christopher Walken where they are talking about Ghandi.
Hans(Walken): As Gandhi said…’An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind’. I believe that whole heartedly.
Bill(Rockwell): No it doesn’t. There’ll be one guy left with one eye. How’s the last blind guy going to take out the eye of the last guy left whose still got one eye left? All that guy has to do is run away and hide behind a bush. Ghandi was wrong. It’s just that nobody’s got the balls to come out and say it.
That scene was great, just laugh out loud funny.
2nd Scene, I really enjoyed was near the end with Walken & Ivanek. That one would give a bit of a spoiler away and I don’t want to do that. But that was just a pretty funny exchange between the two.
Overall the acting was really good, it was really funny at times. But I felt it was just a lot crammed into a movie. Also just didn’t like how it was all over the place either.
2.5/5 Stars – Good but I really think it’s a wait for it on DVD type of movie.
