A few days ago, I went to the Cinema to watch the movie 2 guns. (I did a review for that movie. LINK) I go to a cinema where they say the film begins at 10:15 PM but it really starts at 10:30 PM thanks to all the commercials that fly by.
Not that I don’t like them because all the movies that are soon to be released will show up in this commercial block. One of the movies grabbed my attention. It was the movie The Family.
I saw the trailer and could think anything else than that this is just a fun movie to watch. Kind of like We’re the Millers I think and I liked that movie, so I hope this one is just as good as we’re the Millers.
The movie is about a family that has to hide from the mafia. They go to Europe and hide their in France. They are American and it’s a bit of different culture. They try to fit in but there are a few problems that may seem to occur through the movie.
I loved the sense of humour and the drama that lays behind it. To all of you guys that are curious about that movie to here is the link to the trailer.
Little spoiler alert…. Not a real big deal though.
I didn’t expect that this movie would be that good. I thought it would just be another over manly film with a lot of explosions and stupid word jokes. But it was really entertaining and it never bored me.
The movie is about two men who got together to rob a bank. One of them is a cop (Denzel Washington) the other is in the navy (Matt Damon). They neither know that they are undercover agents. Together they rob a bank as the cop wants to infiltrate a drug cartel. This all goes wrong as they have to get the money back. I don’t want to reveal too much of the movie. I just recommend you just watch the trailer and then watch the movie.
The acting was really good. I liked the acting between Denzel and Matt. It makes it all more real but also very light to watch. There’s no complicated drama story to follow.
The story comes in easy and the plot goes just in a good rhythm. I never get bored because action gets combined with a good dose of comedy and a pinch of drama. They’ve created a good balance between everything.
As I said I hadn’t expected this movie to be that good. Everything just blended in nicely. I would recommend this to everyone who likes a good action movie and at the same time a decent (and believable) storyline.
I rate it 4.8 out of 5 stars
