Spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned.
I had the opportunity tonight to watch The Interview starring James Franco, and Seth Rogen. There has been a lot in the news lately about this movie, and the chaos surrounding the films release. If you aren’t familiar with it all, well, this isn’t a recap of all that. This is my thoughts on the movie.
The long and short of it is this, people are really hating on the movie. I am sure most of this conversation is because of all the hype the movie had, with the press, and actions in cyber security surrounding the film. Basically, it was another Seth Rogen and James Franco movie.
If you saw This is the End, that also starred Seth Rogen, and James Franco, then you basically saw The Interview. Except instead of rapture, it’s Kim Jong Un. The two Americans are teamed up in an awkwardly homosexual relationship and they are thrown against odds to defeat some super power. They experience drugs and they ultimately conquer something.
If you are expecting an amazing film with a lot of laughs, then this probably isn’t the film for you. If you are looking for a few laughs, some carnage and Seth Rogen being awkwardly persued by James Franco, then this is the movie for you.
I rather enjoyed the film, but I think it was because I was expecting it to suck more than it did. All in all, good film.
