The movie about the end of the world. A story that frigthed us all at the time and this movie sure as hell didn't help. But i can asure you that was one of the best i've watched that year. John Cuzack making us glued to the freaking screen untill the very end. Amazing!
I love Matt Damon's take on the franchise: "(On James Bond) He's repulsive. Bond is an imperialist, misogynist, sociopath who goes around bedding women and swilling martinis and killing people. The movies have a formula, they stick to it, and it makes them a lot of money. They know what they are doing and they're going to keep doing it."
It seems to take a lot of effort to get the whole family to watch a film these days but this did it. Liked the fact that the female agent, who looked to be 007's love interest, didn't become too important (and at times proved useful). The shower scene female was also quickly dispatched having served her purpose, even if a 'waste of a good scotch'. After that we got on with the action which provided some originality in places. Light entertainment that did it's job without too much annoyance.
Throughout this film, you want the family so badly to get back together and so when they do, you feel immense elation. A testament to the film making of this story, from the acting (brilliant on Naomi Watts, Ewen McGregor and Tom Holland part), dialogue, and those amazing shots of the tsunami, it delivers the heart of the true story behind this and ends up being incredibly moving.
