Babylon A.D.



I went for a movie on Saturday afternoon with my friend at Pavilion. Movie title is called Babylon A.D. The plot is about the actor takes the high-risk job of escorting a woman from Russia to America. Heard some bad comments from my friends about this movie before I watch. But anyway, yes, this movie is bad, and what's worse, I went in with low expectations. I wanted to like this movie, really I did. Sadly, it went the other way.

The whole movie is like a mess. There are scenes in which you can tell the direction has no heart and the characters are just boring and flat. The acting is mostly weak. Vin Diesel still tries his best to act, but to no avail as the film keeps sinking to new depths. Vin Diesel and Michelle Yeoh seem to lost in this cinematic wreck. If you go in expecting the next academy award winner, you will completely despise it. I don't know whether they are setting up for a sequel or what but the ending was laughable or the best to describe is “No proper ending”, the ending is just like chopped off suddenly and I really don’t understand what’s the message the movie try to deliver.

The movie is about an hour and a half and I felt like two hours show. That, ladies and gentlemen, is reason enough to evade this movie unless you are excessively bored and have no entertainment alternatives.

我对最近的英文电影都没啥信心。上星期六陪老姐去看了"钱不够用",她由开场笑到结束...我反而找不到笑点,但有几幕让我一直流泪啦...(那个黎明的演技有进步...)

还有,最近的《赤壁》仍然让我记忆犹新...

下一部期待的是歌舞剧,《Mamma Mia!》。如果有时间,这个月18日去看看吧。

I watched it last 2 week with my buddy too. Both of us feel ok with the movie most probably because VIn Diesel is my idol...... but we hate the ending part.
