So I finally was able to watch the Epic/Adventure Inkheart a couple of days ago, now that it is on DVD (came out Tuesday, June 23rd) and I have to say I really enjoyed it.
Heard a few reviews here or there about it, when it came out in Theaters and it seemed that some had higher expectations and were unfortunately disappointed by the outcome; but for me I didn’t have a single expectation; just hopes.
I hoped that I would be entertained by this film and I was; I hoped that at some point I would sit forward in my chair anxiously awaiting what happens next and at times I did; I hoped that I would really despise the evil in this film and be routing for the good guys to hurry up and kick some butt and I did. So in my books; this movie did not waste two hours of my life and I did not want my money back; in fact; I think I’ll even get myself a copy for my personal collection; so that my family and I could sit together and enjoy it again and again.
I have always been a fan of most of Brendan Frasier’s work; The Mummy 3 not included. I loved The Mummy and I absolutely completely whole-heartedly (get the picture) adored The Mummy 2. Brendan Frasier makes me laugh and is pretty good at doing the whole hero bit and doing these kinds of films; he has had a lot of practice.
Inkheart is the first of its kind; in terms of its concept. It has an unique storyline; an interesting ending; one or two twists (predictable and unexpected); all and all I liked it; I’ll give it four stars or out of five; one star for a creative and original concept; one star for Brendan Frasier (who I love as an actor); another for the evil dude Capricorn played by Andy Serkis; who also portrays the naughty and disgusting Gollum/Smeagol in “The Lord of the Ring” series; and his wicked henchmen; and the last star for the very cute actor (Rafi Gavron-never seen him before) who played Farid; I probably appreciated and mentioned how cute he was about six times while watching this movie; other than his “cutie-patootiness” ; he really did not have much of a challenging or stand-out role to make you want to know him or crave more of his work; anyway I wish his cuteness and his career all the best.
I will put this film on my Epic movie collection shelf right between the Harry Potters and Stardust (have you seen that one, I absolutely love it, rent or buy it, pleeeeeaaaaaassssee). Oh, Chronicles of Narnia(s) is on that shelf too. What did you think of this movie, let me know, please?
Love yah, Love movies
Have a nice day
