Movie Double Review

Movie Double Review: Gulliver’s Travels 3D & The Mechanic

It has been a while since I have been to the theatre and I know why: there’s really nothing truly worth of value at the moment. I will not be verbose in my reviews as it is not truly necessary.

Gulliver’s Travels 3D

The movie is less than decent and effectively ruined the story I loved back in my childhood days. There were some moments of dry humour but the overall production values were a jumble; some scenes looked good enough and the rest were disappointing. It’s 2011 and somehow camera manipulation between giant and midgets is inexplicably disastrous. I also fail to see why the movie advertises itself in 3D as apparently there is nothing 3D-ish about it. As for the story… a used condom has more interesting travel tales to tell. View trailer here.

The Mechanic

Movie is average; better than the one above for sure but has an uneven pace. It starts off slowly, a prominent guy gets killed without much character development for you to care about, and eventually picks up into lots of explosions and shooting. Story is predictable with absolutely no twist whatsoever. View trailer here.
