Synopsis; In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
Watch The Interview Full Movie: As December 25th finally arrived with the international community stirred anew, The Interview, starring Seth Rogan and James Franco, sparked my curiosity charmingly. But as they say: there is no such thing as bad PR, and that (along with the explosions) is what I believe attracted audiences to see this film more than anything. Before any animosities against my particular opinion, understand these following points of analysis:
Watch The Interview Full Movie: When I watched the first thirty minutes of the film, I really didn’t feel too excited as James Franco’s main character, Dave Skylark, was conveniently hooked up to interview the Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un. On the contrary, my reaction was a subtle *so what?* I felt it was too convenient and unrealistic. I understand some viewers like that about these types of movies; they’re simple, and it has an excuse as a silly comedy. At the same time, however, it just isn’t tasteful. I may have laughed a few times at the Katy Perry in the tank scene or the overweight child in front of the fake grocery store part, but other than that, I didn’t find it that entertaining. “Haters gonna hate” or “They hate us because they ain’t us/anus?” I feel as though the humor was thought up by a first grader, not to mention the endless cusses, innuendos, and perverted sentiments. Like I stated before: tasteless in my opinion.
Watch The Interview Full Movie: If I could point out the most interesting section of this film — if we are going by a simple beginning, middle, and end structure — it would indeed have to be the second act, the middle. The scenes displaying Kim Jong Un and his emotional side actually struck a thought in my mind of the real scenario in NK at the moment. It displayed a piece of humanity, something the audience can relate to. Unfortunately, the ludicrous antics appeared once more, and I lost the sense of depth with the character. The final act felt rushed, as if the writers were just adding and not subtracting ideas to fill up the 120 pages for the script. Even in a comedy, I don’t fully comprehend why this film was so over-the-top or why it appeared so jumpy. Again, I cannot emphasize it enough; there is no empathetic connection.
Watch The Interview Full Movie: There is so much I can scrutinize about this film, but to display a less cynical side of this review, I would like to commend the props, special effects, and editors for the visual appeasement. Ultimately, no, I would not add this to my movie collection. With that in mind, this is the conclusion of my skepticism. Hope you agreed and enjoyed the review. Thanks guys!
