HUSTLERS is a brain dissonance! I really did not expect this picture to be at least watchable. I will even say more … this is a GOOD tape! In addition to the actual problems that are revealed there, in the film there are still good acting and fascinating dances, from which three letters suggest themselves – SEX.
Honestly, I didnÂt expect it to be so driving, because the trailer was so miserable and disgusting from and to that after it I would like to even take a breath to stay conscious.
Therefore – if you saw the trailer, then forget everything that was there.
Now I will analyze in more detail …
1. The script
The plot tells about the dancers of an elite strip club, where all brokers come from Wall Street. But at one point a banking crisis occurs and they lose their Âeasy earnings. Then they try to make money in other ways … Well, you will find out the rest after you go to the movies. I can say that the story itself was interesting. Yes, it is tightened in some places, somewhere is chaotic, but itÂs still interesting to watch it anyway.
If we disassemble the characters, then we get some understatement. Although several heroines are represented to us, only two are more or less revealed, but even this has some reservations. Personally, I still did not understand how I should relate to RamonÂe. On the one hand, she does wrong, to put it mildly, but on the other, she is not such an insensitive bitch. And because of this, the dissonance in my head again … Okay …
We turn to the ideas of this picture: those who are offended by society begin to “take revenge” in all possible ways. This picture indicates that everything starts from childhood – with childhood injuries associated with family problems.
Another main idea of the picture is that while some act and strive for something, others simply can not really do anything, but have everything with them. This is the purest philosophy of life.
In general, the scenario is good. Yes, imperfect, but still with great ideas, good characters and an interesting plot.
Surprisingly, everything is fine here too.
Jay Lo is just gorgeous! She plays great. Let her character be quite contradictory and ambiguous, and sometimes even mysterious, but she wins it off impeccably! I didnÂt think that this would happen.
Despite the fact that Constance Wu for some is not the best contender for the role of Destiny, but I liked her game. A pretty good dramatic role. Her heroine wants to empathize, and also she can be easily understood.
Personally, I still remember Keke Palmer in the role of Mercedes. Very organically fit into the image. It was simply impossible not to take my eyes off her even when in the foreground was the same inimitable Jennifer Lopez.
The rest played quite well, but it was absolutely standard in the film. Nothing other actresses have stood out.
Well, in general, the cast is great! Probably the best that is in this tape.
Of course, the viewer will be interested in the tape from the first frames. This is understandable … After all, the first 30 minutes are simply the most diverse forms and volumes, which are shown not only from all angles, but also in dances to a wide variety of music at different time periods. And it really captivates. Even the gift of speech may be lost. But this is exactly what the tape needed. But now itÂs not about that …
I would like to touch on the contrast of genres in the picture. There is a clear balance between comedy and drama. And never two genres intersect in one scene. It will not be such that in a dramatic moment a person will be funny. And in this case, this is only good for the film.
STRIPPERS is a good tape. Imperfect, but with its own charm and enough pros. Yes, chaotic periods. Yes, itÂs tightened in some places. Yes, the characters are not disclosed in as much detail as I would like. But still watch it anyway interesting.
The ideas in the film are relevant, the acting is magnificent, and the surroundings are simply gorgeous.
The trailer in this situation so deceives the viewer that the distributor and the studio may simply lose the audience that the film might like. In this case, I say – DO NOT watch the trailer, because it does not reflect the essence that will be in the picture. ItÂs better to look at critics’ ratings on various aggregators, and also read a couple of reviews from there to understand how this product actually positions itself.
