Tropic Thunder Review

I feel a bit silly about publishing this this review, since I wrote it a week ago… I just saved it without clicking the Publish button… I guess that’s what happens sometimes with a new medium like this. Anyway, here is my review.

After seeing Tropic Thunder, I realize that there are two parts to this review. First, for the squeamish and the easily offended, it’s time for you to leave. Do not buy a ticket, this movie is not for you. You WILL get offended and will not have fun… unless you want to get offended.

Now, for all you people who don’t fall under that former category, get ready for a fun ride. This is not a great movie, but it had me cracking up during enough scenes that I lost count, probably the two most memorable parts were the film’s fake movie trailers, which completely took me off guard and had me laughing out loud (especially the one with featuring Tobey Maguire). My other favorite part of the film was Robert Downey Jr‘s entire performance. This man has had an amazing year, most actors are lucky if they’re in a good movie every couple of years, but between his performance here and earlier in Iron Man, he’s having a great year.

The movie is about a group of actors trying to make an epic Vietnam War movie, based on the writings of a GREAT grizzled and hand-less Nick Nolte, but they end up having production problems and the creators of the film decide that to try and shake up the production, they would strand the actors deep in the jungle to try and scare them into making a great authentic feeling movie and let’s just say that things start to go wrong FAST!

This really wasn’t really a tour de force for Ben Stiller‘s acting and his pacing (as a director) felt off at times, there were times when Jack Black was funny, but at other times he just didn’t really cut it and Danny McBride wasn’t as much fun as in Pineapple Express, but even with that, Stiller made a funny movie that I had a lot of fun watching this movie.

Thanks to ScreenRant for the above pic.



Oh yeah, also, watch out for Tom Cruise, that’s all I’m going to say.
