A young woman wakes up after a terrible accident to find that she’s locked in a cellar with a doomsday prepper, who insists that he saved her life and that the world outside is uninhabitable following an apocalyptic catastrophe. Uncertain what to believe, the woman soon determines that she must escape at any cost.
Everyone is raving about 10 Cloverfield Lane. I’m anxious to see how this film actually relates to Cloverfield and please make sure you don’t Google the ending.
Yes, everyone is raving, but I’m still not sold. Let’s see how it goes this weekend. I don’t expect it to put much of a dent into Zootopia.
hot chief DSO’s Take
Nobby (Sacha Baron Cohen), a sweet but dimwitted English football hooligan, reunites with his long-lost brother Sebastian (Mark Strong), a deadly MI6 agent, to prevent a massive global terror attack and prove that behind every great spy is an embarrassing sibling. Nobby has everything a man from Grimsby could want, including 11 children and the most gorgeous girlfriend in the northeast of England (Rebel Wilson). There’s only one thing missing: his little brother, Sebastian, who Nobby has spent 28 years searching for after they were separated as kids. Nobby sets off to reunite with Sebastian, unaware that not only is his brother MI6′s deadliest assassin, but he’s just uncovered plans for an imminent global terrorist attack. On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realizes that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot.
I’m just not sold on The Brother’s Grimsby. I think Sascha Baron Cohen is a tremendous talent, but this film looks like it’s trying way too hard to be funny. Who knows, maybe I’m wrong?
I’m with Scotty 100% on this one.
It looks like 10 Cloverfield Lane has the makings of a huge hit, so I’m going with that as my pick of the week. Next week we have The Divergent Series: Allegiant, Miracles From Heaven, The Little Prince and the fantastic looking Midnight Special. Have a great weekend everyone.
