Ok I’ve been out for a while now and I’m so happy to be able to come back to reviewing movies that I’ve recently watched and today I’ll be chatting about the movie called The Show.
I usually try to read the synopsis for a movie like this before I watch it but I assumed that won’t be necessary after looking at the cast. With the likes of Josh Duhamel (Transformers), Famke Janssen (X-Men), Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break) and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) I was looking forward to it. Then I saw it and I couldn’t believe how bad it was, the movie plot didn’t make sense to me at all.
The movie is about a show where people auditon to come on and commit suicide on live Tv. The contestants give the reasons for them wanting to commit suicide and have to come up with creative ways of doing it. The viewers now phone in to donate money for the family of the contestant depending on how touched they were by the reason for and the creativity of the suicide. There was small personal drama in it meant to tug at your emotions but failed miserably for me, the movie sucked!
Feel free to see it and let me know what you think about it in the comments.
