I’m a sucker for revenge thrillers, essentially all they really have to do is not suck and I’m on board. And _Message from the King_ sure didn’t suck. Even if it did, massive bonus points for the kid playing _Payday 2_.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
Chadwick Boseman carries it no doubt, but I did feel entertained throughout by ‘Message from the King’.
It’s a simple film. It doesn’t do anything revolutionary or anything, yet still managed to keep me watching with interest for practically all of the 102 minute run time. I like how it starts most, with the connections feeling believable. It loses some of that as it goes on, though it didn’t affect my enjoyment all that much.
Boseman really is the only true star of this though, as he gives a very good performance in the lead role as Jacob. Luke Evans (Paul) is pleasant too, while Teresa Palmer (Kelly) has a few moments. Alfred Molina (Mike) also appears, as do Messrs Draco Malfoy and Brad Bellick…
The ending isn’t the greatest, though it is still serviceable. That coupled with the nice look of the film and a certain Mr. Boseman mean I’ll remember this in a positive manner.
Hidden Among the Rags (of LA) comes a Beauty of Cinematic Excellence
This movie shows you what cinema should look like. This old craft of making movies with tempo, cinematography, editing and score is deprived of all imprints of judgement, opinion or the director’s indulging in his pretentious personality as many directors strive to do these days; it seems that the director has nothing to prove but only the commitment to telling a beautiful masterful story filmed with excellence and craftsmanship. The goal here is to learn what real cinema is. Everything serves the story, everything is well balanced. It’s an exercise in genre and a director’s pure intentions to making only cinema. You don’t get pitiful emotion or euphoric fake bliss you only marvel in excellence. No shot is overrated, no emotion is fake. This is a work of a master. And these days masters are found in Europe. It brought me back to my film school days when I was in awe with the great directors of past and how they can create a work of art without the excesses of today’s cinematic work that is riddled with uselessness and has no soul or beauty. Mind you, this is not a masterpiece, far from it; rather this is a lesson of what true cinema is… Watch it and be in awe…
A good and well deserved “message from the king”
“Message from the king” have to be one of the best payback movies ever made. This movie reminds me a little of “Man on fire” and “Drive”. Its a dark thriller and shows LA in a way none else does. The story line is absolutely magnificent and the acting as well. This is a movie that deserves a much better rating and meta score. If you are looking for a good thriller/action movie…..this is absolutely one to watch!!
