The Interview – Forget the hype enjoy the comedy

Reviews of films as hyped up and controversial usually go one way down. The familiar why did I see that? There was nothing in it? Why was it banned, such a bore etc etc. The reason being that we’re expecting something to wow us something to send chills down the skin and all. And that’s okay too because that’s what we were made to believe and well they did win we did see the film hated or loved it we bought the ticket. Just like Spiderman’s every new sequel gets more money and everyone hates it more. 

But well this is a good film. I’ve always enjoyed James Franco & Seth Rogen. They always have the perfect amount of cringe and stupidity to go about them unlike curb your enthusiasm which is always please god know to another please god no. 

Franco plays a TV host of a celebrity reveals it all show, the character is like a child or Tracy Morgan (30 Rock) and the metro sexual usual franco persona. Seth plays the sensible director stuck in the directors nightmare which pays good money. 

The film starts off with setting the characters and some really funny guest star appearances and then the main score of the interview his majesty. The rest is the usual Franco, Seth shananigans along with the you turns.

If you’re not convinced to watch this film there is a scene with Kim John and Franco driving a tank to a Katey perry song and blasting off things. That is all.
