Mini Film Reviews Volume 50

Paws Of Fury: The Legend Of Hank

Hank, a lovable dog with a head full of dreams about becoming a samurai, sets off in search of his destiny. The idea to this film is well thought off and it has got a good story but unfortunately it isn’t as funny as it could be, it lacking the charm and it is slightly hyperactive from the start plus this isn’t memorable whatsoever, the villain isn’t memorable and overall this film isn’t as memorable.

Benediction

Legendary 20th century war poet Siegfried Sassoon’s life – long quest for personal salvation through his experiences with family, war, his writing, and destructive relationships goes unresolved. It is one of those film with a sensitive topic and it doesn’t really work plus the pacing is off, I also found Jack Lowden is out of his element, it hasn’t got that emotional aspect and you don’t really care about with these characters, unfortunately it doesn’t really moved you.

King Richard

A look at how tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams became who they are after the coaching from their father Richard Williams. A promising film which has got potential and the story is there, it doesn’t really moved you and it is too overlong and the acting is just average and it isn’t character driven enough, it isn’t uplifting or inspirational as it should be with this film.

Turning Red

A confident thirteen-year-old girl is torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. And as if it weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited or stressed, she poofs into a giant red panda due to her ancestors association with the red pandas. Pixar normally consistent and they do brilliant films plus this one is the weakest as the main lead is not likeable, it not really laugh out loud funny, the moral is be an individuals and stand up for yourself and people will connect to that message, despite that it isn’t up there with the best Pixar films.

A Call To Spy

In the beginning of WWII, with Britain becoming desperate, Churchill orders his new spy agency SOE to recruit and train women as spies. Firstly this is well made and the story is actually really good, the acting is good and occasionally it feel like a TV movie at times and it has got mini-inconsistent and it doesn’t flow as much, despite that it is intriguing to watch from the first frame, this is a well – intentioned film.

River (2021)

A cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the remarkable relationship between humans and rivers. Eye catching documentary with stunning scenery and this will wowed you as it can be really interesting and insightful, it doesn’t really gel together and Willem Dafoe can be rather underused and despite that the ending is superb, this is totally memorable and it drawn you in from start to finish, it is well – made and the pacing is perfect and it does hold your interested.
