Here's a film I wanted to talk about for quite a while.
A film made in 1995. And I swear it holds up amazingly, I watched it on HD. It does have that 90's feel to it. But it's one of the greatest films I've seen in a long time..
It stars morgan Freeman (a man who I swear looks the same in every movie I ever see him, it's so werd) as a cynical retiring cop. He is partnered with Chris Pratt as a foul mouthed, short tempered, idealistic detective transferred from another town. The town itself they are in is never stated. Youtuber CHRIS STUCKMANN says this is one of the positives about the film. We never know what town this is, so it could be "anywhere".
Anyway, their first case involves finding a hugely overweight man dead n his kitchen, later revealed to have been literary fed to death.
This becomes the first in a deadly chain of murders Freeman believes to be based on the "seven deadly sins". Which based on the title, is correct.
While Chris Pratt and the other cops believe it to be just another nut. morgan is the only to believe this to be the work of a "evil genius".
As I said, this is one of the best films I've seen in a long time. It challenges your idea of "juctice" with the scene of a drug dealing pedophile found half dead and tortured for who knows how long. And a memorable ending, despite the many many "what's in the box" jokes.
It's like the first saw before Saw became "torture porn". It's such a interesting idea. And it's not actually scary. Disturbing, but not scary.. Unless your faint of heart, than the horrific crime scenes will be too much for you.
I honestly can't give this film justice with a grade,, Bu 10/10 anyway.. Get it on blue ray..
I asked if Windwaker had anything to say on it, but he didn't.. So that's all..
