Sorry for the past few weeks of year end holiday mood and new year-lag,this is my 1st blog post of 2011 and promise will blog more in this new year.
Ok,let's back to this movie.First,the box office in North America was not good($60 million) and the total of worldwide grosses is only $160 million.A class actor and actress but B class result,what's wrong with this movie?Audience's fault?
My answer is--NO and the main problem is old Angelina Jolie and the normal Johnny Depp.
As she getting more older,grab someone's husband and be the mum of many children,Angelina Jolie not as hot as last time.She no longer be the 1st choice of sexy girl in men heart.She should change the way to act,having some different performance and character that she never done before in others type of movie.Fighting and sexy not suitable for her anymore(Admit it,Megan Foxx is more hotter than her a lot).When she still want to walk the old way,that's the result that audience told her--OLD.
Which Johnny Depp that you all like?I love his weird character by exaggerated performances,not many dialogue but his face and action will make u laugh and love him in a second until the end of the movie.But inside this movie,his character was too normal,like anyone can act this character.You will not feel Johnny Depp 'appear' inside it,the character without Johnny Depp soul.
After talking so many about marketing,let's talk about the story and the performance of the actor.Slower pace is the weakness of this movie.If your dialouge was interesting,know how to tell a good story,I don't mind be slow.But this is a commercial film,everything must be fast,fast until no time for audience to breath!No sex scene for Angelina Jolie let this movie more dry.
A good movie will have question to audience and told the answer in the end.But no question about Alexander Pearce and suddenly we know that Frank Tupelo actually is Alexander Pearce in the end will let us feel...oh...in our heart then feel nothing go out from the cinema.Ya,now you know that the importance of a question??
