Movie Review: Unforgettable
Another plus here were the tight production designs and lavish locations on hand. The costumes and sets were ASTOUNDING while the oppressive woods, the awe inspiring snowy mountains tagged with the polished cinematography all chipped in to have me say â€śI wanna vacation there, sword in tow!â€ť Then we had the countless amounts of beasties hitting the spot. Lots of varied baddies here (loved them Zombie like cannibals) all well designed and mostly well executed. Moreover, the drama here was hard hitting to say the least. I really got into the characters, their relationships and the visceral turns they were put through. Needless to say that the bang on cast had something to do with me getting owned by this one's human/emotional content. Hard to go wrong with Pete Postlethwaite (who wisely downplayed it), Alice Krige, Max Von Sydow, the lovely and oh so f*ckable Rachel Hurd-Wood and Jason Flemyng. They all brought further class and legitimacy to the movie.
And when you add to all that loving a slew of exciting action sequences (crazy chases and razor choreographed sword fights), a winning sense of humor, a keen eye behind the lens (Michael J.Bassett knows a thing or two about groovy hero shots), a couple of left field NASTY moments that uppercut my sorry ass and a moving score - you get a fun and quality filled ride all round! Any peeves with this tough guy? A few. Nothing worth murdering your ex over though. The flick sported some dodgy CGI now and again with the â€śend bad guyâ€ť being the worse of the lot. I actually thought the latter was not only mishandled execution wise but also in terms of him being a big pussy (when taking into account â€śwhoâ€ť he is). Personally I wouldn't even had showed him at all. Would've kept it for the the sequel. "Him" being in the film was akin to me dropping my load too early when in a bang and run situation. But hey thatâ€™s just me. Finally the flick went for its conclusion too quickly and all was resolved too easily in my opinion
Overall though, I really dug my time with Mr. Kane. He was the kind dude Iâ€™d love to have by my side in a bar fight. I hope to see him going into decapitation overload once more with the â€śshould happenâ€ť SOLOMON KANE PART 2!
