Great Geoffrey Rush: unusual, interesting, bizarre
This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.
This is one of the Geoffrey Rush movies that is very different. I loved his acting abilities in The Life and Death of Peter Sellers" which was done on cable. His characters are so alive and have such high quality energy. This movie has that same acting quality.
It is a very bizarre movie in an interesting way that once you start watching the movie you don't want to stop because it is so different & unusual a story
. All the characters were well acted. They all deserve credit for making a good, well balanced group of characters; Sylvia Hoeks' character adds to the bizarre & unusual tones, while Jim Sturgess and Donald Sutherland's characters are also non-typical and add to the unusual aspects of this film. But Geoffery Rush is the stand out!!!
At one point I started to wonder if there wasn't something else going on that was not obvious at all and was kept low & well hidden. I had that feeling in my gut about it and....... sorry no spoilers...you'll just have to watch this movie.
Apparently it was released outside the US and wasn't in theaters here that I know of. I can't really remember how I found the trailer online. ( I don't watch cable tv at this time and therefore don't see those movie trailers.) However, I'm very glad I found it!
I like Geoffrey Rush very much!! I wouldn't have bothered with any "Pirates of the Caribbean"" sequels if my Captain Barbossa character wasn't among them.
I think Geoffrey Rush is an incredibly talented actor and this is another one of his gems you might not have seen. It is well worth it to own!!
