This Rotten Week: Sundance Film Review: ‘Juliet, Naked’
Juliet, Naked” is a gently winning romantic comedy, all keyed to a delightful note of indie-rock obsession. It’s exactly the sort of movie you want to see at Sundance — though by that, I don’t mean that it’s a knockout work of art like “Manchester by the Sea” or “Whiplash” or “Boyhood.” It’s a little mild, a little cozy in its affections; it didn’t leave me as excited as “The Big Sick” did last year. (Frankly, it could have used a more killer ending.) Yet it’s a winsome screwball love story that grows on you and takes you somewhere charming.
We have Denzel Washington helping getting vengeance,
ABBA songs galore, and a trip to the seedier parts of the internet. Get ready for juliet naked,
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again _and _Unfriended: Dark Web.
Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer.
Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.
ROTTEN WATCH PREDICTION 53%
In the first juliet naked (60%), Denzel Washington played a guy with a set of skills perfect for the revenge-type action film we've come
to know and love - because they come out multiple times a year).
It went over fine with critics, and to his credit,
Washington's intensity works really well for this genre. Now he's back at it in the sequel, juliet naked, which follows nice-guy
vigilante Robert McCall as he protects the innocent and lays waste to neighborhood ruffians. It looks like a lot of fun.
Antoine Fuqua is back at the helm for the sequel after directing the first installment. His career really started (relatively speaking)
working with Denzel Washington in Training Day (75%). He's had an interesting career that's seen him take on a number of different types of stories.
Sure, there is Shooter (47%) and Olympus Has Fallen (48%) as examples of action-heavy fare,
but then there's the boxing drama Southpaw (59%) and the western remake The Magnificent Seven (65%).
I think juliet naked falls in the range of those latter films, and its predecessor.
It looks like your standard action flick that likely gets a boost because the star is so damn good.
