So we waited for the new ‘Halloween’. I had mixed expectations of the film. I didnât expect a masterpiece, but I didnât believe in failure either. So, in fact, it happened.
I’ll start with the plot. The film will periodically throw us back into the past. This is necessary to build logic in the present. It’s boring to watch, but you have to. What about the present? And then imagine Michael Myers survived, that’s so amazing news. If anything, it was sarcasm, since there is nothing surprising here. This is where I finish talking about the plot, the essence is clear, and the rest is already on the screen.
What I didn’t like about the film. And I’m not going to talk now about the readability of some plot moves or twists. In slashers, this is a common thing. And there is no point in talking about clichÃ©s. It is clear that if a person runs away, he will surely stumble. And if a policeman shoots from a couple of meters, then of course he will not be able to hit the target. And if a maniac is a couple of meters away from you, then he will surely suddenly disappear in an incredible way. I already perfectly understand this. Another thing upset me.
The actions of the characters in the film are sometimes striking in their stupidity, with dialogues sometimes the same trouble. It seems that this is also a familiar thing for slashers, but sometimes it seemed to me that the film lacked some kind of naturalness or something. Some heroes think very one-sidedly. This is typical for some kind of robots or computer programs, but not for humans.
Now that I liked it. These are murders, of course. In the film, they are shown very cynically, cruelly, but not banal. Those. we do not see the usual ‘death for the sake of death’ scheme, here all the anger of Michael Myers is directly transmitted through the screen.
I can’t help but mention the ‘Halloween’ soundtrack. How amazing he is. There are soundtracks – the calling cards of films. For example, ‘James Bond’, ‘Mortal Kombat’, ‘Terminator’. This one belongs to the same category. It just gives you goosebumps.
Very carefully about the ending of the film. Alas, this is my sorrow and pain. It seems that everything ended well, but no, the creators had to go into the lyrics. And that’s understandable, ‘Halloween is killing’ is just a springboard for ‘Halloween ends’.
As a result, I don’t like springboard films. I understand the creators, extra cash will not hurt them. But it’s not so straightforward to do something. I believe that ‘Halloween is Ending’ will still be able to put a spectacular end. Otherwise, what was the point of all this?
