Movie Reviews:

  • r96sk: Dark!

    ‘Changeling’ is a cracking release from 2008. Angelina Jolie gives a superb performance in the lead role, in a plot that is rather harrowing whilst also being actually incredibly infuriating – as in, the film does a great job at making the antagonists the antagonists.

    The cast, spearheaded by Jolie, are excellent. No-one is on her level per se, but there are very good performances from the likes of John Malkovich, Michael Kelly, Jeffrey Donovan and Geoff Pierson; kid actor Eddie Alderson also impresses.

    I will say that the story wraps up in a quicker manner than I thought it would, though the pacing of the 142 minute run time is in fact one of its positives – even at that length, I feel it could’ve drawn out the court trial stuff longer; though that may have hindered the pacing, so it’s not really a noteworthy criticism of mine at all.

    One worth recommending, no doubt!
