Yeah I know, well and truly late but Zelda…….its just so good!
Anyway, this weeks recommendation is the only film I’ve watched this week so by default gets picked. The Film is ‘Live By Night’ and stars Ben Affleck as lead actor and the theme is your typical Mobster style Gangster movie.
I will quickly mention that I use to hate Ben Affleck, with a passion but in the last few years I’ve started to respect him more for his roles (Also check out ‘the Accountant‘). Ben plays a character called joe who is in the middle of 2 rival families, throw in a complex love interest, and things begin to get complicated with dangerous outcomes.
The pace of the film starts slow, but definitely picks up towards the 2nd half of the movie. I will tell you now, this is no classic, its a million miles away from your ‘Godfather trilogy’, ‘Goodfellas’, ‘Scarface’, ‘Casino’ to name but a few, so don’t go in thinking it will sit in the same league.
This is what I would call a ‘sofa movie’ you wouldn’t probably want to spend cash money to watch at the box office, but you wont be disappointed if you watched it for free as I did (God love you Kodi).
My official rating would be 3/5
