This movie was quite interesting and new. A movie made from a Roald Dahl didn't seem like it would be a succes however many more Roald Dahl classics came from this film including the animated BFG and the real life motion picture Matilda. I enjoyed the small hard to notice comedy in this fil from Mel Brook's actor Gene Wilder (Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein) I enjoyed this film quite a bit so I will give it 4 out of 5.
When I walked into the theater to see this movie I was dreading it but I went because my godparents wanted to see it. Then once the movie started I was intrigued by how well it was being done. It was fun. This film was just plain fun, and it seems that all the actors & actresses had fun being in the movie. Originally I wasn't too happy that John Travolta was playing a women because of all his other roles carried so much masculinity in it. He did really well and kept the movie going strong. I enjoyed every song and enjoyed watching the cast just have so much fun. Everything in this movie was great and it never slowed down. This is the third time that it was remade but it seems to have been done just as well if not better than the others. The first time that Hairspray was heard of was in broadway then it was made into a movie, and then another movie. I was especially surprised by how the main character who stole every scene she was in even though it was her first move. The movie was excellent and I recommend every one watch it.
When this movie came out in theaters I really wanted to see it but didn't have a chance to until last night and it was worth the wait. The storyline is pretty well done but the action scenes were excellent and fast paced. Sometimes the action scenes seem a little over done but with the pace of the story the acton scenes fit pretty well. There are good performances from the cast for example Mark Wahlberg does great as the action hero of the story. While watching it theres is an action scene at the beginning of the film that I thought was just to pull you in but it turns out that there is meaning to it once you watch it.
The story is about a retired sharpshooter (Wahlberg) who was found by an army official played by Danny Glover so that he can explain a job that Wahlberg was needed for. The job was to pretend like he was going to assassinate the president so that the military and the F.B.I. would be able to catch the person who was reportedly going to really assassinate the president. All this leads him being setup and allowing for some good action scenes. As the story draws out you become more into it until the end of the movie. I expected this movie to be good and at the end of it I was surprised by how good the movie really was.
