Review: The Interview

I was amazed how bad this movie was. This is a movie that even the President was talking about and perhaps, only because of the subject matter of trying to kill the dictator of North Korea, is the most controversial movie of all time. This movie from beginning to end, was total garbage.

As far as being a comedy, this movie violates the cardinal rule of comedy – its just NOT funny! Nobody was laughing in the theater, nobody. There are scenes of violence and death, including defecation and biting off fingers that were very disturbing.

For some reason, James Franco was acting very strangely in this movie and you had the impression that both Seth Rogan and Franco probably thought that him acting so strange and abnormal would be funny. On top of all this, this movie made no sense. There are plot changes and conclusions to scenes that made absolutely no sense.

I only saw this movie because of all the news reports about it, and I now regret that decision. This is clearly one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Avoid this movie at all costs.
