The Misfits [Movie Review]

The Misfits [Movie Review] | I remembered being awed by Pierce's portrayal as Bond when I was younger. And then I saw this movie is aired. After reading its synopsis, I decided to give it a go, expecting the same reaction when I watched 007's movies years before.

Was it any good?

The movie starts with a backstory to all the characters. When a movie starts this way, I would know that there will be multiple 'grand' characters that we all ought to remember.

Richard Pace, a brilliant international thief has just escaped prison, owned by the same person, Schultz,  three times. This time around, he manages to escape all the police chase but was caught by a group of young 'Robin Hood' characters who steal from the bad guys and give back to humanity.

A bit offended that he was caught by young ones, he was about to turn down their offer to be a part of the group - until he hears that they were going to pull off the heist of the century: stealing millions in gold bars kept under one of the most secure prisons on earth, owned by Schultz, and used for funding terrorist groups worldwide. 

His first motivation is the gold and the second one would be revenge against Schultz, the man behind his incarceration. 

Are his motivations strong enough to join The Misfits?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 3.0/ 5.0 The start was great. Then it starts losing momentum with no sense of direction and I would say pretty lousy scripts. 

Everybody wants to be in the limelight that I think the movie loses its aim in the end. A movie that does not require you to think - just enjoy the ride. 

Cast: 3.0/ 5.0 I know how marvellous Pierce is so this movie is kinda a letdown - not fully utilising his ability. 

Will I watch it again: No, thanks. 

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.

  2. Wahhh hero James Bond lah berlakon. Nampak barisan pelakon semua best. Takpe Ruby cuba tengok. 3.0 tu rendah betol rating. Kikiki. Ruby kalau cerita aksi, lebih suka filem Korean.
